    After Molly Wizenberg's father died, she traveled to Paris and - amidst its culinary delights - realized her heart was in the kitchen. So she began Orangette, a highly popular cooking and life blog that eventually led her to the love of her life.

    What did you like best about A Homemade Life? What did you like least?

    My favorite part about A Homemade Life was how I connected with story. I personally did not have the same experience with food as the author, but I could still relate to the stories, thoughts, and relationships. It was a simple story and a light, but enjoyable listen.

    What I liked least was the format of the audio book. I listened to this book for a book club and it wasn't until I saw the hard copy of the book that I noticed the audio book did not have the recipes. While I would not have been able to follow along with the recipe while I was listening to the book, it would have been nice to have at least heard them. I felt like I was missing a part of the book.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Truthfully, I felt like the story just ended. I was really getting into it and then it was just finished. However, I really liked the story that the author used to conclude the book.


    Have you listened to any of Mia Barron’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to Mia Barron's other performances, but I really enjoyed listening to her with this audio book.


    Could you see A Homemade Life being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I could see the premise of A Homemade Life being made into a TV series, kind of like a mix between a cooking show and a sitcom, where you learn a recipe from the star of the show, but then scenes are included that show the back story. I don't know who the stars would be, though.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book for the light-hearted feel and the simplicity of the story and I have recommended this book to a couple people, especially to those who have grown up around food and cooking.
