My Reviews

The Saffron Kitchen by Yasmin Crowther
 
Book Club Recommended
Slow, Informative, Beautiful
Captivating

I really enjoyed reading this book, the author painted a captivating picture and revealed just enough about Iranian customs to be interesting and keep a reader involved. A romantic yet real view of human relationships with their ups and downs. The book tackles some fairly intense topics in such a way that you feel but are not bogged down in gloominess.

The Hindi-Bindi Club by Monica Pradhan

Fun, Insightful, Inspiring
A book about mothers and daughters

I could not put this book down once I had started, I especially loved the recipes and reading this certainly made me crave spicy Indian food. Inspiring story about the relationship and how it changes with time between mothers and their daughters essentially, made all the more interesting, funny and touching by the struggles and sacrifices those mothers made to give their daughters a better childhood than their own.

 
Difficult, Slow
Not well recieved

Our book club on the whole did not enjoy reading The Winner Stands Alone. The majority finding it difficult to get through and not actually finishing the book. Others found reading it more interesting, if not spectacular, but were quite frustrated by it's abrupt ending.
Amoung the group there were existing fans of Paulo Coelho's work with their own expecations of his writing style it was more of a dissapointment to those members which was unfortunate.
