I really enjoyed the "Julie" parts of the book. I understand why Julie Powell added the "Julia" bits to the story, but I don't actually feel that they added anything to the book. The random letter snippets didn't seem to correspond in the right places. I do understand, however, why these sections would've made great transitions in the movie itself. It just didn't play well in the book. Powell's telling of her own story was great, though. I read this book quickly as a follow-up to "My Life In France," a biography of Julia Child.
