Julie and Julia: My Year of Cooking Dangerously by Julie Powell

Book 11/30.

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I bought this book because I am familiar with the movie version starring Meryl Streep as Julia Child. I haven’t watched the movie yet, but since the book is almost always better than the movie I decided to give this a try.

1 star AF!!!! My biggest problem with this book is Julie Powell. She’s such a shitty person, and she only got shittier the more I read. At first I thought it was me judging her too harshly because I prefer to actually like my main characters, or at least understand where they are coming from. But after reading reviews from other people who also gave the book 1 star I can safely say, “Julie it is not me, it is you bitch!!” I mean, halfway through the book I had to Google and find out if she’s still married to her husband because she was such a raging bitch towards him. No wonder Julia Child wasn’t an admirer of hers or the Project.

ALSO, SHE WAS A DISGUSTING SLOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
