review 1: Mixed feelings about this book. I picked up this book because the synopsis piqued my interest. However, this was a rather disappointing read. I got kind of frustrated with Elza, the protagonist, at certain point of the book. I understand it's her existential crisis moment, but I did not like how the story ended. The redeeming part of the book is that it's realistic enough that life does not happen how you want it to be, and you just have got to make do with what you have. Nonetheless, this is an easy read but not as enjoyable.
review 2: Elza runs a popular resteraunt in a mid-sized Hungarian city. She serves authentic Hungarian dishes. She is loosing her enthusiasm for the resteraunt and her affair with her soux chef. She decides she must have a famous food
... morecritic come review her resteraunt. I didn't like Elza or any of the major characters, and I felt that several of the minor character were not given the depth that they deserved. And the parts with the gypsies was strange and out of place with the rest of the plot. less

Hmmm ... it was okay. Nothing outstanding but an enjoyable, quick read.
Sometimes if you want to find happiness, you have to turn up the heat
Probably more like 2.5 stars, but ... anyway. Quaint.
Great read!
