They all wanted me to agree that Republicans were the devil's spawn. The only man in the group took me to task about defending evil Republicans.
They threw me out too. I wasn't respectful enough to the guy apparently. There you go. These two events hurt me so much that I had to console myself with several bars of chocolate and a whole evening of Masterchef.
And rereading and editing this review again, I am still so distraught that I am going to have to finish the bottle of chocolate Baileys and hope I feel better then.
Kind of rewritten 4 Jan View all 52 comments. Author Julia Powell is a mix of many people. From page one, when she tells us she sold her own eggs to pay off credit debt, she is much like the dreaded person seated next to you on a long-haul flight that proceeds to tell you their life story in a matter of minutes.
She is also the TMI girl that we all know, whose narrative describes the smell of her burps and piss, bitches incessantly about her job and Republicans, describes smelly cocks, drinks too many cocktails, tells us she sleeps with her Author Julia Powell is a mix of many people.
She is also the TMI girl that we all know, whose narrative describes the smell of her burps and piss, bitches incessantly about her job and Republicans, describes smelly cocks, drinks too many cocktails, tells us she sleeps with her face on her husband's ass, says fuck every other word and undoubtedly finds herself witty and funny while being oblivious to the gaping jaws and cringes of those around her.
She smacks and insults her loving and patient husband while contemplating cheating on him and living vicariously through her slutty friends, both single and married.
I smell a divorce cooking. In short, she is the loud girl we all wish would shut the fuck up. She proceeds to alter and screw up recipes, partly due to their difficulty, partly due to her bad planning, and mostly due to her own stupidity: i.
We are, of course, supposed to laugh at this and find it all funny. As she embarked on this culinary journey, I couldn't help but remember that she'd mentioned having three cats and a python, and being disgusted that this was the environment in which she'd be cooking.
But no worries. She will of course tell us about the cat hair in the kitchen and in the food, along with the dead mice for her snake shoved in the same bag as her cooking ingredients.
And the vegetables falling on the rotted out kitchen floor, which she naturally picks up and throws into the pot. And the flies in her kitchen.
That lead her to find the maggots. In her kitchen. An ignorant reader like myself gains a new appreciation for the complexity of Julia Child's recipes and something like but not quite admiration for the author actually going through with cooking every recipe in the book.
This will not go on my "sucked" shelf, as is certainly didn't suck. I give it one star for being very readable and for being a somewhat touching story of how one nobody became somebody all by herself.
I simply didn't like her tone. I just couldn't take it. I hear she has a sequel coming out next month, this time about being a butcher. Would I read it?
Not because I want to read about her mutilating dead animals and describing even more bodily functions we don't need to know about. Really, I'm dying to know if she divorces that kind husband who was by her side the whole time.
I'm betting she did. View all 43 comments. Mar 31, Madeline rated it did not like it Shelves: the-movie-is-better , memoir , ugh.

It is a well-documented fact that Julie Powell is a delusional asshole if you need a good laugh, look at the reviews for Cleaving , her second book - they all essentially boil down to "Wow, so turns out Julie Powell is horrible" , and even if I hadn't been aware of this, there's the fact that whenever I watch the movie adaptation of Julie and Julia , I skip the Julie parts because even Amy Adams, who is literal human sunshine, cannot make that woman appealing in any sense of the word.
Actually, the whole reason I decided to get this book from the library is because the movie was on TV the other day, and I got morbidly curious about Julie Powell's side of the story.
I had already read Julia Child's My Life in France , which was the inspiration for the Julia parts of the movie, so I decided that it only made sense to complete the experience and read Powell's book.
Powell wastes no time letting her readers know exactly what kind of monster she is. On page eight Eight! We're not even into the double-digit pages yet!
Basically, Powell is waiting in the subway one day and witnesses: " The loon started smacking her forehead with the heel of her palm.
It was only once I was in the car, squeezed in shoulder to shoulder, the lot of us hanging by one hand from the overhead bar like slaughtered cows on the trundling train, that it came to me - as if some omnipotent God of City Dwellers were whispering the truth in my ear - that the only two reasons I hadn't joined right in with the loon with the gray crew cut, beating my head and screaming 'Fuck!
Performance anxiety and a dry-cleaning bill; those were the only things keeping me from stark raving lunacy.
How much of a selfish, raging narcissist do you have to become in order to watch what is clearly a mentally ill person having a disturbing episode, and your first response is, "Ugh, same "?!
And then you record the scene in your memoir and frame it as some kind of profound breakthrough moment for you? Gee, I'm so glad that person had a mental breakdown and seriously injured themselves so you could have an epiphany, Julie Powell.
I read the damn book and I couldn't even tell you. So anyway, Powell starts working her way through Julia Child's cookbook, keeping a blog about her progress.
This means we get a delightfully dated scene where Powell's husband suggests she start a blog, and Julie's like, what the hell is a blog?
As many reviewers have pointed out, the blog-to-memoir transition was done pretty clumsily, with scenes happening out of sequence and a nonsensical structure - Powell will start a chapter about some recipe she was working on, and then break for a lengthy flashback that has almost no relation to the beginning of the chapter.
It's very difficult to follow the progress she's making through the cookbook, and all the flashbacks and timeline-skipping meant that I never had any clear idea of where I was in the project, unless Powell directly referenced the date.
Along with the messy structure, another big issue with the book is that Powell is She's clearly trying to be self-depreciating, and make us think that she's rolling her eyes right along with us whenever we read a scene of her throwing a tantrum about mayonnaise - but the problem is that I wasn't shaking my head and smiling in bemusement, like Powell wants me to.
I was just thinking, "you are horrible, and telling me that you know you're being horrible doesn't help. Try this excerpt on for size, and see if it makes any goddamn sense to you on the first reading: "My mother is a clean freak, my father a dirty bird, semi-reformed.
Between them, they have managed to raise one child who by all accounts could not care less about basic cleanliness, but whose environs and person are always somehow above reproach, and another child who sees as irrevocable humiliation any imputation of less than impeccable housekeeping or hygiene, and yet, regardless of near-constant near-hysteria on the subject, is almost always an utter mess.
It made me long for the effortless, evocative writing Julia Child presented in My Life in France - her description of the proper technique for scrambling eggs is practically poetry.
Her project, and every recipe she describes, are never presented as anything other than a chore she has to get through. There is no joy in Powell's book, no love for the dishes she prepares.
And frankly, a lot of Powell's book is pretty gross. Her kitchen is always a disaster scene, with dirty surfaces and piles of unwashed dishes.
Which, fine - you're working a full-time job and cooking gourmet meals every night, obviously you're going to slack off on cleaning again.
But then Powell discovers that there are maggots living under her dish rack, and I was fucking done. With Julie and Julia , Julie Powell has managed to do the unthinkable: she wrote a cooking memoir that didn't make me feel hungry, not once in three hundred pages.
I'm pretty sure that's a capital offense in some countries. View all 37 comments. I love the concept, I really do; not so much the finished product.
Had she not made the fuuny reference to my favorite line in Casablanca near the begininning of the book, I never would have been able to finish it.
The thought of finding another gem like that made me stick with it even when I wanted to throw Julie out of a twenty-story window.
The whiny, self-absorbed, melodramtic, narcissistic, trite yet on occasion deliciously funny Julie Powell decides to take up a project to add meaning to I love the concept, I really do; not so much the finished product.
The whiny, self-absorbed, melodramtic, narcissistic, trite yet on occasion deliciously funny Julie Powell decides to take up a project to add meaning to her life, or at least to distract herself from dealing with it: She decides that she is going to cook every single recipe in Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking and that she is going to do it in the time span of a year.
Julie never mentions how many hours she actually works in a week at her "oh pity me, the lowly secretary who still makes enough money to live in New York and buy enough food to cook every single recipe in the Julia Child MtAoFC cookbook" job, but I honestly have a very difficult time believing that she worked full time, commuted, did the grocery shopping, cooked every single recipe in the book, wrote a blog, and yet still had time to watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
I mean, really, does anyone that gave this book five stars actually cook?!? She does make the point very clear that she didn't clean at all that year.
And she did allow herself to gain an untold amount of weight rather than work out. I suppose that gave her a little extra time to devote to this project.
And on top of all that she expected her husband and her friends to support her insanity, wholeheartedly and unabashedly. Eric should have kept a blog for the year about putting up with Julie!
For a book about cooking, there is a sad lack of description regarding the various recipes. Sure, she does go into detail about excavating bone marrow and dismembering lobsters, but what about the food?
I didn't get the impression that she actually loves food so much as that she has a gluttonous relationship to it.
Don't want to deal with your feelings? That's okay, just stuff them down with extremely high fat foods and ignore the consequences.
I have no patience for this sort of self defeatist behavior; the average overweight american who refuses to take responsibility for their own health and instead assumes a false sense of pride over being carefree about their food choices.
And then just accepts a dependence upon pharmaceuticals to manage the ill effects. Is it really any wonder that heart disease is the number one cause of death in the United States?

Completely and utterly disappointing. I was so in love with the idea that Julie came up with: to recreate each of the recipes in Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking.
I never had read her blog before, and my expectations for the book were high. Unfortunately, Julie is a completely repulsive, unappealing and vulgar human being.
Her self-deprecating - humor, was it? The fact that she keeps her crappy apartment in filthy, squalor-like conditions she had maggots growing in the kitchen that she was theoretically using on a daily basis kinda made me want to throw up.
If it hadn't been for my fascination with food and my love of Julia Child, I would have stopped reading which is pretty rare for me. The book isn't even about the cooking or Julia, not really, anyway.
It's instead just a new platform for Julie to continue with her self-indulgent blogging. View all 20 comments. Apr 22, Jonathan rated it did not like it Shelves: time-i-wish-i-had-back , food.
I figured this book would be along the same lines. Yeah, well, it wasn't. Instead of a book about cooking, it was a book about a whiny, pseudo-intellectual woman who tries to cook because her life is otherwise crappy.
Please tell me how cooking an entire Julia Child cookbook will improve your life. Actually, don't, because that is the premise for this book and it sucked.
Oh, and reading about her husband was cringe-worthy. This wimp drinks vodka tonics, gets shaving tips from gq, and has regular, uncontrollable vomiting episodes.
Hey guy, maybe when your balls finally descend from your body cavity you can write a book about that. Then both you and your wife can have lame books published.
For the sake of fair reviewing, I only made it through just over half of this before I became too repulsed to read on.
So maybe it turns out awesome. Maybe she gets all the recipes cooked. Maybe her husband and her friends actually become interesting.
I guess I'll never find out, because I know I'd derive ten times more entertainment from smelling my fingers than I would by finishing this book.

The horror tale. The first thing you have to know about her is; she's not like other women, she reads books.
According to that logic, this entire website constitutes an anomaly in the Venn diagram of women everywhere, so take that as you will. She's one of the most self-absorbed people I've ever had the displeasure of coming in contact with - and on top of that she's a disgusting slob.
Powell repeate Oh Jesus. Powell repeatedly talks at length about the poor state of the house, what with cat hairs everywhere, thick layers of dust on everything, fleets of flies, maggots in the kitchen where you're cooking on a daily basis, but God forbid she actually does something about it.
Besides whining, that is. And no, " after a year of this, part of you just assumes there's gotta be some maggots somewhere around " is not an excuse for your kitchen being a health hazard.
Now, I don't know about Long Island, but I live in a 40 sq ft flat straight out of a Polly Pocket rejected concept and I have never had a problem keeping the bloody kitchen clean.
Even with pets around. In the end and I mean the end as in the actual end, after a year of not tidying up it's her husband who cleans the entire flat after one of her fits.
I feel so sorry for that man because " [ I don't mind her language but the melodrama gets old real quick. If you have issues cutting the marrow then plan ahead and ask the butcher.
They're there for a reason. If you're having trouble with the mayonnaise then maybe read the whole recipe beforehand instead of just tossing everything into a bowl hoping for a miracle.
Seriously, this is one of the things that bothered me the most; she never actually planned anything. She repeatedly mucks up recipes because apparently she's never read them in advance.
We're talking about 5-pages recipes that she just decides to go ahead and try without a bit of preparation. That's unfathomable to me. On top of that she consistently treats her husband like utter garbage, consistently talks shit about her "friends," turning them into the butt of a joke or a misguided moral of the story: "look, I'm messed up but at least I'm not the year-old having sex with the married Cali guy!
She hops on the highest of horses and judges this friend of hers, Isabel, who decides to divorce her husband after falling in love with and English guitarist.
This after consistently mistreating her own husband and entertaining herself with the idea of adultery the entire David-Strathairn-seducing made me feel so uncomfortable I had to put the book down for a minute.
Funniest thing: apparently, after publishing this first book because yes, she somehow got a deal for another one , she had an affair that lasted two years and was chronicled in her second book.
You're no paragon of virtue, either. Quite the opposite, in fact. Maybe you should shut your trap and stop judging literally every single one of your "friends".
If you still have them. She keeps tracing this line between herself - The Democrat - and everyone else at work - The Republicans - and then proceeds to write some of the most asinine, racist, prejudiced, misogynistic sentences.
And, just in case you'd forgotten how thoroughly American something can be, Powell makes sure to remind you every four pages or so that every other place is a Barbaric Wasteland light years behind, and America is the Only Land worth living in.
Which sure dampens my European spirits when all I was expecting from this book was a fun light read about cooking and living.
But no. Racial stereotypes and prejudices abound. There's the veiled daughter of a bedouin, the ancient Japanese sex position, the bigoted Sicilian women who cross themselves every time they see Julie's red-headed brother, there's the Hungarian policeman who steals money from tourists, the cannibal Germans, kinky Asian euphemisms for watersports, repressed Islamic societies oh, and did I mention the gas chamber jokes?
Right when I thought it couldn't get any worse. And let's not forget about the rape jokes, because those are always so much fun and I wouldn't want to miss out.
If you're wondering why I haven't talked about cooking, it's because there's not much cooking in this book.
Sure, Powell spends quite some time in the kitchen, but she barely cooks. She yells, she cries, she throws things, she slams pans and pots on the counter top, she breaks kitchen utensils.
Powell actually has no chill, and the last place she should spend time in is the kitchen. Sep 15, Melindam rated it did not like it Recommends it for: Noone.

I think there's an unfortunate trend that people follow these days, particularly women, to verbally criticize themselves in a hyper self-aware manner, as if recounting all of their faults real or imagined will not only amuse the listener, but prove that they are stoic-even good humored-about being the biggest, fattest, ugliest, ding battiest failures to ever grace the earth.

I'm doomed The books foundation is rocky to say the least. This is clearly a bright woman and obviously very few people think they are the most abhorrent human being alive or the mortality rate in our society would sky rocket, so why bother with all of the abuse?
She doesn't need it-her prose are clever and deliberate, and all of this "I hate myself" crap really clouds what she is trying to say.

Sep 26, Lena rated it liked it Shelves: memoir. Powell can be a very funny writer, and the book is sprinkled with abundant samples of the snarky wit that no doubt made the blog on which this book was based so popular.
This not so much a sensual celebration of food as it is the diary of a frustrated New York secretary who spent a year cooking like a madwoman.
Her sharp sense of humor is not always enough to balance out her frequent griping as she struggles to complete her task while simultaneously working in a government office run by gasp!
While it was interesting to read how the popularity of her blog snowballed into national news coverage and a book deal, the book ultimately left me with little understanding of how the alchemy of the cooking process worked its magic on the author itself.

Julie disappointed me. Her tone was tired I've rassled too many self-loathing Gen Xers who think that airing their dirty laundry is fresh and shocking; it's not; ever heard of reality TV?
Additionally, she thought insulting her husband was funny, admitting to maggots under her dish drainer a good romp, and marital infidelity blase'.
I have Julie disappointed me. I have a hard time imagining how I would ever like her in person. I certainly don't in print. By the end, though, when she finds out that Julia Child doesn't like her, I felt sorry for her.
I get the impression that when she undertook the project Julie was a deeply depressed girl who was trying to lose herself in the details of the challenge.
Frankly, it reminds me of Eat, Pray, Love in that regard. Find yourself, eat great food, AND get a book deal out of it!
But she failed to evidence significant questioning or growth. Perhaps she was unprepared to vigorously grapple with the process. Perhaps she was too lazy.
Perhaps her writing was too poor to convey overreaching change. But, then, what's the point of the book? The project was motivated by feeling stuck in her job a low level drone in a government office as well as rebellion towards the whole Alice Waters, locovore, trendy foodie things.
I instantly connected with the author — she was a Buffy the Vampire fan the blog was going on during the last season , found the act of preparing food very sensual, and was trying to figure out what to do next with her life.
The book is very entertaining, mixing stories about Julie Child and stories of her own family in with the trials of cooking the recipes including treks to find bone marrow, brains and other offal.
Her husband Eric is portrayed as a saint, her friends are nuts. Its fun to read. But what really struck me was not the challenge of cooking, but the blogging.
In addition to cooking every recipe, she blogged about everything she cooked. I went on-line and looked at some of the blogs. And it was entertaining… she had a huge following after a while, she set up a way people could donate money to help buy lamb and more butter to keep the project going — and they did.
She never talks about the challenges of blogging in the book.. It has a happy ending, she found her real calling as a writer.

To be honest I had no idea what the movie was even about except for the fact it was in some way about Julia Child.
I have adored Julia Child for a very long time so this is why I was drawn to the movie trailer. I am a red seal chef so there is another attraction right there.
This book, I was not aware even existed till a few weeks ago. So I guess all can see the connection I would quite obviously have I have wanted to see the movie, Julie and Julia since it was released.
So I guess all can see the connection I would quite obviously have to this book also. Having said all of that, I may never see the movie now, I don't really need to.
This is one of the funniest things I have read in a long time. Over the twenty-five years of my life spent as a practicing chef I have encountered some of the weirdest and strangest and completely bizarre things one could imagine so I was fully able to relate to all of the authors ups and downs throughout.
I have a much better appreciation of the trials and tribulations of the task set forth in the premise here. The way the author describes how it is she works through some of those cooking faux pas's is hilarious.
To say I can relate doesn't quite sum it up, but you get my meaning. It comes across to me that there was some sort of weird symbiosis between the author herself and Miss Child even though the two of them have never met.
It was as if they could read each others thoughts in a way. I do talk to recipes as if I am talking to the person that penned it, so it was refreshing to see I was not the only one!
One does not need to know how to cook to find this book a real gem of a read. Well written, funny and just a nice release from the daily grind.
Highly recommended. To me this is a book about finding sanity in structure. Julie doesn't know what to do with her life, so she manufactures a project By completing at least one new recipe a day, and blogging about it, she finds herself so consumed that she has little time to obsess about her dead-end job, and her possible infertility.
It reminds me a lot of "Rosemary Goes to the Mall," a podcast in which an art instructor makes a project of shopping from and getting a bag from every store in the Mall of America..

Feb 19, Jennifer rated it it was ok. I love the concept- the story of the author working her way through Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking one recipe at a time, skipping nothing.
At its root it's a true life adventure- something I can experience vicariously. On the other hand, sometimes the execution is flawed. But maggots under the dish drainer?
Ewww eww eww! As the book wears on, the story becomes less and less about the cooking and more and more about the how much the author hates her government job and her small apartment, the plumbing catastrophes that regularly happein in said apartment and the cast of kooky friends that drop in regularly.
Knowing that the book started out as a blog makes the prose a little more forgivable. Although the book is NOT written in "blog form", I can see where the narrative would have worked well when it was a blog.
It's obvious the author felt the need to pad the story a bit to make it in full-length book, which I don't think was totally necessary.
The filler it just that- filler. The author supposedly had a multi book deal now. This blog even predates WordPress which started in ! Having a unique great idea and posting regularly is the perfect recipe for blogging success.
You can find the original blog here in the Web Archive. The Book Deal: Sept. The publishers knew that her blog had already created a market for the book and the media had already picked up on her story.
