If you enjoyed the movie DON'T download this. It's NOT about the cooking or the food. It's about her trials and tribulations and they are many indeed. She's a Democrat and that's fine, so am I, but I don't need to know the presumed political affiliation of everyone she dislikes. Nor is she the first to be employed in a not so fulfilling position.

I can see why Julia Child is said to have been less than impressed with the book. It was as if cooking was a goal, not a pleasure, just git 'er done.. There is none of the overwhelming enthusiasm that she had for cooking.

While I can appreciate what the writer actually did, it was one of the hardest reads I have had. I say the movie was better because at least the movie character was easier to empathize with.

The actress gave a performance that allowed the movie watcher to at least find something relatable and likable about her.

Take two cooks, blend carefully and enjoy

The longer I read this book, the only thing I kept thinking was "Finish the book because you paid for it. It is one to dislike this or that character in a book, but to find that the writing style, the use of language, the constant denigrating of anything or anyone on a whim and the laissez Faire attitude displayed regarding anyone or any situation she deemed as non traditional was somewhat disgusting.

I realized before the mid point of the book, this is a person I would never want to call friend. So with that in mind I also realized I will never waste another dime reading anything written by this author.

This book had nothing really to do with Julia Child. This is a pitiful read. I pride myself that I finish a book, no matter what, but this one almost made me throw it away. This was a rambling on of a bad tempered, self centered girl, who forced herself to cook through Mtaofc.

I'm sure her food at times, tastes good, following Julia's recipes, but as a reader I had to swim through the self indulgence, and whiney chatter of this truelly boring 'blog' person. Julia Child was a woman of class and grace, something this girl will never know, no matter what she cooks. I have read thousands of books in my time.

I have never read a piece of trash like this. I can see how Julia Child would be embarassed to be even mentioned. This book should receive NO stars!

Mass Market Paperback Verified download. People either like Julie Powell or loathe her, it seems. Although in the blog on which the book and film were based, she shows herself to be prone to overreacting and self-absorption, I appreciated her acerbic wit.

Apparently she did not handle her subsequent fame very well, and her follow-up memoir was uniformly-panned, pun intended. I was looking for a low-key read for summer and remembered enjoying the movie, so I thought I would try the book.

I found the main character whiney and messy and not a lot of fun to read. Wouldn't recommend the book. Enjoyed the movie. Hardcover Verified download. Maybe it's unfortunate that I saw Julie and Julia at the theater before I read the book.

I enjoyed the movie. I found Amy Adams a little more likable than in her previous movies, and Meryl Streep was just spot on. As movies usually leave portions of their namesake books out, I downloaded Julie and Julia to my site to see what I'd missed. That was on August 23; it's now September 11, and I've just finished. I've had plenty of opportunity to read the book in that long time span, but not much to entice me.

Julia Child is still my go to author when I want to cook something special and out of my usual range which is inspired by her I enjoyed the movie and was hoping for more insights into the cooking so I grabbed this when it was featured on one of my discount lists instead of downloading a sample.

Julie is hurt when Child gives a dismissive comment on Julie's blog. She attends Le Cordon Bleu to learn French cooking, and is initially met with skepticism as she is the only woman in the class.

Madame Elizabeth Brassart Buck , the proprietress of the school and Child clash. She is undaunted however, and begins collaborating on a book about French cooking for American housewives with Simone Beck Edmond and Louisette Bertholle Carey.

Paul warns Julia that he may be assigned elsewhere, as his four-year assignment in Paris will be ending soon. She remains optimistic that they will not move Paul, and if they do, they'll remain in Europe. Child's book is offered publication soon before Paul is reassigned to Marseilles. She and Simone plan to tell Louisette that she will be receiving a smaller share of the royalties they receive from the book due to Louisette's lesser contribution to the project.

After learning Louisette is getting a divorce, they waive their claims.A snarky, sarky, endlessly-whining personality that is amusing to read on a daily blog, gets a bit much in a full-length book. Hey guy, maybe when your balls finally descend from your body cavity you can write a book about that. It is a well-documented fact that Julie Powell is a delusional asshole if you need a good laugh, look at the reviews for Cleaving, her second book - they all essentially boil down to "Wow, so turns out Julie Powell is horrible" , and even if I hadn't been aware of this, there's the fact that whenever I watch the movie adaptation of Julie and Julia, I skip the Julie parts because even Amy Adams, who is literal human sunshine, cannot make that woman appealing in any sense of the word.

I was so in love with the idea that Julie came up with: Probably the biggest problem with the book is that it was marketed as a book about cooking, when in fact it was just a relatively shallow autobiography with few larger lessons or takeaway points.
