The Cookbook Collector - Allegra Goodman I'm about half way through this book (and skipping over quite a lot of text to get there) and I can't decide if I should continue on or not. There seems to be a lot of new characters being added the further into the book I get and I'm wondering where they will fit in to the main story. ??

Continue or return to the library?

The writing is good but I don't understand where the comparing to Jane Austen is coming from.


I did finish and I do admit to skipping quite a bit of text. I wish we were able to give 1/2 stars, as I'd like to give this a 1 and a 1/2 stars. I really did like the Jess and George part. And would have really loved it if the author would have told more and the original cookbook collector and his story.
