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

Review: The Rituals of Dinner

User Review  - Kapara - Goodreads

Visser is a brilliant and thoughtful author, and I loved "much depends on dinner", but this book is far too scholarly for me. It reads like a textbook. Read full review
