    " This book was okay. Skipped ALOT of parts (cooking, menus, etc). Just okay. "

    " unsettling, depressing and ultimately pointless. "It was all a bad dream" "

    " An uneasy mix of kitchen culture, mental health, class and race. I admired what she was trying to do without actually enjoying the book much. "

    " Though this novel is less critically acclaimed than Brick Lane, I enjoyed it much more. Though it took me awhile to feel fully immersed in the protagonist's plight, I eventually felt that he was an incredibly round and rewarding character to follow through his highly diverse and complicated life in London. In the end, what troubled me about the book didn't emerge fully formed until I got to the final page and looked, quizzically, at the long list of acknowledged sources that informed Ali's writing. Looking at this list made me realize just how packed with detail that felt researched but not quite realistic this novel was. These research laden sections, ultimately, bogged down the more human elements of the plot, which were by far more compelling. "
