Book Review: Food: A Love Story.

Who would think XX pages of food humor would be so wonderfully great! Jim Gaffigan did and he produced it well! There's nothing more than a book that makes me laugh out loud, or share hilarious quotes with friends who are fellow "eaties." 

His humorous view on food was often relatable to anyone who has a deep love for a good meal!  The title was great! Cover and quality even better!

Food: A Love Story

The flow of the book was great. You will recognize some material from his stand up routines and I don't find that to be a negative thing at all. It builds a comfortable familiarity bridge for the fans between his stand-up and his writing. And for those who not familiar with all of his stand-up, the material is fresh and great for them as well! The only criticism I found was that the book can get a little repetitive, as if to fill pages, and when I began to notice it was happening, it became a bit of a struggle to get through the redundancy. Overall, Jim Gaffigan is absolutely hilarious and this book was well worth the read. We could all use a rainy day bookshelf pick me up and this book is exactly that!

*Disclaimer: You will crave food the entire time. So when you pick up the book - grab a snack, too. Trust me.
