Good Summer Read

Comfort Food is a light summer "read" that was enjoyable to listen to. I would have liked a little more character development of the daughters. They had the potential to be interesting characters to use as spin-off stories in the future.

What a dumb story!

This book is nothing short of stupid. I have long considered my words, wanting to be precise in my criticism in respect to the responsibility of a negative review. I can’t say this book is horrible, that would imply all components were failures, they were not. There was a thorough story line and a considered plot, it was just extremely dull. The characters were conceivable but were presented in such an unbecoming manner, at times even cringe-worthy. In all, it was just a stupid, boring story unworthy of the caliber of “The Knitting Club” trio. Someone had warned me it wasn’t as good as the trio, which I really enjoyed, but I never imagined it would be so dumb.

Just makes you want to cook for your friends

Would you consider the audio edition of Comfort Food to be better than the print version?

I have only listened to the book and I loved it!!

Who was your favorite character and why?

All of them..........they all worked so well together and I was able to follow the story. It was worth the listen.

Which character – as performed by Barbara Rosenblat – was your favorite?

all of them............she is a great reader. I look for books read by Barbara Rosenblat just to hear her voice and enjoy her ability to make a story great.

Any additional comments?

Loved the book. Great sweet story, not mushy. Serious and funny. Good combo
