I too bought this because I loved the movie preview. I really liked the parts where she talked about Julia Child's life or quoted her, and her cooking descriptions. I also did not care for the swearing, and how self-absorbed Julie often was. I liked her character better in the movie than the book.

I read this book because her idea of trying out every recipe from Mastering the Art of French Cooking was one I have toyed with, but knew I could never do the livers or brains. So I commend her highly for her determination and perseverance. She really makes me want to get out my Julia Child book and get cooking. The book is written in an enjoyabe-to-read light tone, although sometimes I did get a little confused by her back-tracking. It is extremely evident that she really disliked her job, and those parts of the book really could have been left out. Same with the swearing, but a lot of people don't even notice it. That said I wish her much success as an author and will re-think my dropped attempt at trying all the recipes. But not in a year and definitely no brains!

I bought this book because the movie looked so appealing. I was expecting half the book to be about Julie (writing the blog) and half about the iconic Julia Child. The book was mostly about Julie with very little about Julia Child herself. I understand the movie is about both of them.

It's a quick and easy read.
