A fun book with some hilarious adventures (and misadventures) in food. Those with a sensitivity toward strong language beware! Julie has a mouth like a sailor just off a three-day binge.

My overwhelming feeling when reading this book was that I had no idea how gross French cooking was! I was treated to many laughable moments, a few deep thoughts and even moments of wanting to slap the main character. In the end I admired the quest that Julie took on and the meaning that she etched out of it. It definitely has the potential to inspire one to dream outside of the box.

Really fun, quick read. I've heard lots of complaints that she didn't follow all the recipes exactly, yada, yada. Well, really the book isn't about the recipes, it's about this woman's search for a purpose in life and how she accidently found it through Julia Child.

A very good read! Not quite what I expected, but still good. I thought there'd be more about the food and cooking experiences, but this was also a memoir of sorts.

I love good food and enjoy Julia Childs so very much but this book seemed to make fun of her and her recipes not to mention the horrid use of one unsavory word over and over as well as sharing some oddest aspects of her own life. I guess it's supposed to be a humorous take on living in a tiny New York apartment and trying to cook one's way through Julia Child's classic cookbook. Some may find it humorous. I didn't. I find it strange, too, that cooking supposed to help the author find purpose to her life yet most of the book is devoted to her cooking failures which seem too occur most of the time.

So, so much better than the movie. The movie was "cute" and this girl in the real story is truly a mess. I love this character.

I haven't read the book yet but the movie was fun romp! I loved learning about how Julia Childe got her start! I used to watch Julia Childe when I was a music composition student! She was so funny! She also had the dope on how to make a mean casserole and other entertaining things to cook on my restricted college budget!
