We have all heard of the movie "Julie and Julia" that has recently hit the big screen and has done pretty well in the box office. The reviews of the movie are quite good, and this review on the book is no different.
"Julie & Julia: My Year of Cooking Dangerously" by Julie Powell, is fantastic. It does not bore us to death about the art of cooking, it's cute, and laugh out loud funny. You can relate to Julie, working a terrible 9-5, knowing there's something more out there, a life with more meaning. It makes you want to start up a new hobby, whether it's cooking or something else that you have an interest in.
Ignore any bad reviews you read, seriously, the movie AND the book (especially) are great.
