Heartburn
Heartburn | Nora Ephron
Is it possible to write a sidesplitting novel about the breakup of the perfect marriage? If the writer is Nora Ephron, the answer is a resounding yes. For in this inspired confection of adultery, revenge, group therapy, and pot roast, the creator of Sleepless in Seattle reminds us that comedy depends on anguish as surely as a proper gravy depends on flour and butter.Seven months into her pregnancy, Rachel Samstat discovers that her husband, Mark, is in love with another woman. The fact that the other woman has "a neck as long as an arm and a nose as long as a thumb and you should see her legs" is no consolation. Food sometimes is, though, since Rachel writes cookbooks for a living. And in between trying to win Mark back and loudly wishing him dead, Ephron's irrepressible heroine offers some of her favorite recipes. Heartburn is a sinfully delicious novel, as soul-satisfying as mashed potatoes and as airy as a perfect souffl.From the Trade Paperback edition.

#RedRoseSeptember I adored this semi autobiographical novel about a food writer in her third trimester of pregnancy, when she discovers her husband is having an affair. #GroundsForDivorce
#SeptemberSins What makes this book even more fabulous is the #PureAndSimple recipes that the author includes throughout the novel.
And total #BonusCoverCrush ♥️♥️♥️

I haven't read Ephron before but I really liked her spicy, irreverent humor. BUT overall I was not a fan of the characters in this book. I didn't root for the love interests and was pretty apathetic about the ending, but I still enjoyed the entertainment factor and Jewish recipes sprinkled in.

Finished reading Heartburn today. I don't think it was spectacularly amazing but Rachel's emotions resounded within me and for that I can't help but like it so much. I love well-delivered monologues of characters where they describe what and how they feel. I've always thought the more detailed the emotions, the better. I think Rachel was a good storyteller. I also listened to a bit of the audio book and Meryl Streep was wonderful.

Started reading Heartburn by Nora Ephron this week. This part in the book reminds me how very strange the human memory is. I have been realizing lately that so many things in my life seemed to be one way or the other when I had been in the moment, but in retrospect it was completely different and sometimes even more different when heard from someone else's perspective.

This is my 2nd Nora Ephron book and I liked it even more than the 1st one! It is billed as fiction but is a thinly veiled memoir, as she talks about her second husband and his infidelity in one of her other books. She‘s hilarious, vulnerable, whimsical yet also very relatable. It‘s a quick read and by the end of it, I wanted to reach through the pages and kick her cheating ass husband where the sun don‘t shine! I loved this! ❤️ 5⭐️

Well that‘s the longest it‘s ever taken me to read a thin book! This tale of a pregnant lady finding her husband has cheated was written in a overly chatty, long sentence, stream of consciousness form that did little for me. There are some great, honest and heartwarming quotes but overall I did not care for the protagonist and it all felt a bit cutesy yet aged!

TheEllieMo I had such high hopes for this book - I mean, Nora Ephron, When Harry Met Sally, what could there be not to like. But it just didn‘t deliver 5mo

This is a story about a woman who is pregnant with her second child and just found out her husband is having an affair. It was amusing at times, but it also felt pretty dated and the main character was hard to root for. I did enjoy the enter woven recipes and foodie talk. (And the narration by Meryl Streep.)

Is there anything Meryl Streep CAN‘T do?! Loved her amusing narration of this classic memoir by Nora Ephron. I didn‘t realize Nora wrote the screenplays for several of Meryl‘s memorable films, including this one, Julia & Julia and Silkwood. Perfect pairing I‘d say! I borrowed this awesome audio from #Libby and only waited 2 days. More Meryl please!

Don't read this when the weather has been cold for a thousand days, and spring feels like it will never come. It seems so depressing. Everyone in a relationship is cheating on their partner. Everyone has been married before and has been cheated on. Then they marry again and cheat. Occasionally someone cooks something tasty (there are recipes included) which seems rather random.

Meryl Streep narrates the audio version, which is one nice thing!

I found this laugh out loud funny and poignant. It's very much a product of a specific time and place (early 80s, rich New York Jews) which I guess some people might count against it but I liked (except for the occasional offhand racism)? It's an incredible strongly realized voice in a 1st person narrative. Very much in the vein of When Harry Met Sally (which I also love) but darker and less romantic. Great #audiobook performance by Meryl Streep!

CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian I guess I forgot to say this is about the dissolution of a woman's marriage and also there are recipes woven throughout. Those two things are important. 13mo

"It's hard when you don't like someone a friend marries. First of all it pretty much means you have to confine your friendship to lunch. And I hate lunch. Second of all, it means that even a simple flat inquiry like 'how's Helen?' is taken amiss, since your friend always thinks that what you hope he's going to say is 'dead.'" ??

A cheerful pot of Earl Grey tea, views of the rising sun through large bay windows and piping hot food was just what this early Saturday morning called for. After polishing off our food in record time, we decided the luxury of comfy seats and extra hot lattes merited sticking around a little longer. We‘ve been chatting and dipping into fresh novels - I‘m starting ‘Heartburn‘ by Nora Ephron.

Firstly, I'd like Meryl Streep to narrate all the audiobooks!
Rachel‘s husband announces he is in love with someone else whilst she is in her third trimester (this mirrors Nora‘s own divorce). It feels like a comedy monologue more than a novel, and Nora gets laughs from what in reality must have been an awful time in her life. But as her mother taught her “Everything is copy"! I also loved the recipes woven into the story. ?

I haven't yet stuck to bailing on this book bc its so short but I really want to. I think it's because I'm not a fan of the eccentricness just for the sake of being eccentric and I am having trouble staying attached to the book. With that being said I am at least reading it at cool places since it's so small I can take it anywhere. Today it was at an awesome restaurant and bar! This drink is called Bubblebath

Infidelity is not my favorite topic, the characters are DEEPLY flawed, it was written in the 80s (& felt like it), & I didn‘t care at all for the gimmicky contrivance of interspersing the narrative with recipes. Still, I‘d give “Heartburn” 4/5 stars. This is the first book by Nora Ephron I‘ve read & I‘ve gotta say: I find her truly hilarious. Also, - & this should surprise *no one* - Meryl Streep does a beyond fabulous job performing the audio.
