Kitchen Confidential | Anthony Bourdain
post image

This was on my TBR list for a long time. Finally took the time to read it. Tony, you will be missed. Your humor, your honesty, your integrity, your warmth. In fact, you‘re missed already.

britt_brooke I love this book. His other nonfiction is very good as well. I still can‘t believe he‘s gone. 💔 2y

Gorgeous cover. This was a fast read. I wouldn‘t say it was a page turning mystery, but it did hold my interest. 3.5/5

They caught him. But that didn‘t stop me from checking the locks and windows every hour. The writing is engaging and wonderful. We lost a fantastic writer.

It wasn‘t what I thought it would be. Not that it was bad. It‘s more a memoir of a time in the authors marriage, with some detective work sprinkled in.

An amazing life. Whether you liked her or not, she was in the business over 60 years. I hadn‘t realized how much she went through and all her highs and lows.

This excited my little nerd brain. It wasn‘t the most ‘page-turning‘ book I‘ve ever listened to, but it had nuggets of info that are really interesting.

Such respect to those that have to navigate mental health facilities. And navigate care and treatment. This book was eye opening and a much needed topic to be written about.

Not the most uplifting topic, but an important one nonetheless. A must read - or listen.

These ladies kick ass! I‘ve always loved Heart, but didn‘t know much about them. A great listen as they both narrate the book.

I started this as an audiobook. It was too confusing. After reading the book and understanding how it‘s set up, the audiobook would be amazing.

CaitlinR I‘ve tried the book and the audio and couldn‘t finish either. I‘ll keep trying. 2y

Meh. Would have made a great short story. It was too long and could have done without all the filler childhood stories.

I didn‘t know what to expect when this landed on my doorstep. A young girl listens as her mother is murdered in the next room. This memoir is about their relationship, the murder, and how hard it can be to move forward. It‘s sad, yet compelling and moving.

The first two books in the series were phenomenal. This book, while good, let me down a little. I don‘t like the neat little bow wrapped around this ending.
