Review: The Rituals of Dinner

User Review  - Emily - Goodreads

It was really slow moving, it jumped around and didn't have a plot line, and I couldn't get in to it. I got to page 200, so I did give it a try. Maybe I'm missing something, but it just wasn't that great. Read full review

User Review  - William - Goodreads

Encyclopedic and always interesting but unfortunately a bit disorganized in the narrative flow. Read full review
