Would you listen to Roux Morgue again? Why?

Yes, I just spy enjoyed the listen, unlike reading style books there is always something you missed and may pick up from a second listen.

What other book might you compare Roux Morgue to and why?

Any fictional with some factual details about cooking in it. I am a chef with five degrees and as of June hopefully six, I am also a full time officer. Cooking and pastry is my passion, being a officer is my daily dredged job.

Which character – as performed by Christine Williams – was your favorite?

The intuitive, needy chef that had to start over.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but due to my catering business and my job as an officer that was impossible, so I just backed it up a little every time to refresh where I was at.

Any additional comments?

I will listen to this at LEAST one more time and keep it in my library.

Hard listen

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Nobody, it was a hard listen, very very slow. I never even made it thru the first of four downloads.

Has 1Q84 turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not genre, just author.

Which scene was your favorite?

None.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

None I could make it to. Just a waste of money and time for me.
