HASH(0xa06a2ef4) out of 5 stars Hilarious! Sept. 11 2009

My husband loves bacon and I bought this book for him after seeing an article about it in our local newspaper. He has never laughed so hard! And it's all so true!

HASH(0xa06a2f6c) out of 5 stars A fun read for bacon-lovers Dec 20 2009
By Gen of North Coast Gardening - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Bacon fans will definitely want to read all the odd stories, history, and modern uses of bacon in this fun, breezy read. I read it over the course of a few months, just picking it up here and there with a strip of bacon and a hefty glass of ice water, and it was fun to get some new ideas for how to eat bacon, and some definite ideas that I do NOT want to try (Paula Deen's bacon/ beef/ egg sandwich encased between two glazed donuts - EW!). All in all, a fun read for the bacon fans among us...

HASH(0xa06c3870) out of 5 stars Eventually you get tired of bacon Sept. 8 2014
By Joel Kramer - Published on Amazon.com
"Bacon: A Love Story" crosses the line from "enthusiastic" to "annoying" sometime around the fiftieth or sixtieth time that the author refers to bacon as "The Best Meat Ever". A collection of smaller essays, the book offers trivia, recipes, and a brief overview of pork farming and the process of making bacon and related meat products, but little thought appears to have been given on how to make the essays work together as a whole collection. Information is often repeated as you read from chapter to chapter, and it doesn't always feel necessary. I also had a concern that some of the information, such as descriptions of businesses and restaurants and their menus, may no longer be current at the time of publication due to the constantly changing nature of the restaurant industry. Bacon enthusiasts will probably enjoy this book, but it gets repetitive for others after a while.
