Subtitled "Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly," this book by chef Anthony Bourdain has been sitting on my TBR shelf for close to a year. Maybe even more. After discarding my first book of 2009 because it was so tedious, I decided to delve into one that came highly recommended by both my husband and our friend Dad2Three. Also, the cover promises that it's "unique…mesmerizing."
Sorry, boys. Bourdain's tales of his life as a chef pretty much did nothing for me. It's hard to like a memoir when the author's voice is so unlikeable. I didn't like Bourdain's writing style and I don't really care about how rich people eat. I think I could write a much more interesting book about working at Shoney's.
And that's all I have to say.
