I will forever be a fan of Jacques Pepin after reading this book. The man has lived an amazing life and tells his stories with humor and sincerity.
The narrator does a wonderful job as well!
Great, breezy story. easy to listen to. Loved the Italian and the cooking terms too :)
What a terrible book. I couldn't eve finish it!
The story captures the life of Julia Child extraordinary! I loved every minute and found myself upset when it all ended.
I opted for the abridged version because I felt the full version would be a little boring. If I could do it over again, I'd go for the unabridged!
This book could have been even better had the author cut half of it out. The book seems solely made for individuals in the restaurant biz, which I am. But I found it a little too textbook at times.
The narrator is not as terrible as others have mentioned. He is dry and offers no different character voices, but he reads it well.
After now listening to the audio book and seeing the movie, I am absolutely captivated with the life of Julia Child. While Julie & Julia focuses more on Julie, I believe the author does a great job expressing her affection of Mrs. Child.
I love that Julie Powell narrated the story as well. She does a great job!
I really felt Anthony Rapp did a great job telling his story and bring emotion to his words. I found myself in tears several times!
weak story and terrible narration. the man can't even read!
If I am going to listen to a book about a bunch of gay guys, why add a lesbian sex scene?
