I also saw the movie afterward, and for the first time EVER, I actually thought a movie actually matched the book really well. They didn't deviate from the book hardly at all.
I love the fact that Julie was frustrated with her job and decided to take on this challenge and has now become a famous writer.
It gives us all hope, I guess
I would like to try some recipes. Will have to do a you tube search of Julia's show I have vague memories of watching it on PBS.
I am also in the ranks of *does she really need to use the F word so much*.
a warning to those who liked or want to like this book. you may want to avoid the sequel. unfortunately i borrowed both from the library at the same time and sequel was so nauseating i lost any appetite i might have had for the book that made her famous in the first place.
I totally agree with this. Julie & Julia was a great read, but her second book just TANKED. Nauseating is definitely the correct word for how it made me feel. The author is so self-centered, and has such a lack of respect and regard for the people that she supposedly cares about that it's sickening. To the point where I was starting to wonder if she doesn't suffer from some kind of serious personality disorder by the end of it. Huge disappointment after JJ and what I was hoping was a promising new author to keep track of.
