The Hundred-Foot Journey: A Novel

The Hundred-Foot Journey - Richard C. Morais This book has little substance to it. It is the story of a middle-class Indian boy who rises to become a top chef of French haute cuisine.Aside from his mother being killed when he is a youth, there are no substantial obstacles to his rise. A little bit of prejudice that is lightly touched upon. Various friends and family dying as they grow old.Crises of creativity and finance that are resolved as quickly as they come about and long before they become anything dire.What I must give the author credit for is writing well and so compellingly that I was never tempted to set the book aside.If you're looking for a light, summer read, this is one; if you want something to make you think, to discuss with others, this is not what to read.
