The village people dude and rainbow flag has nothing to do with it, but it's funny as hell to see.

Great conclusion to a 23 year journey.

P.S. On a sidenote, I have an expired e-mail address from my college that I haven't changed on my Amazon account. Apparently Amazon doesn't know its expired and offered me Amazon prime for $39/year. Guess I'll be ordering more books with the free shipping

Fascinating story that begins in rural Ethiopia where an infant Samuelsson, his sister and mother were dying of TB during an outbreak in the 70s. Seeking medical care they travel on foot to the capital where his mother dies. He and his sister recover and are adopted by a Swedish family. The book then chronicles Samuelsson's early influences and his rise in the culinary world to become a renowned chef.

i should probably read it again.

i finished this a couple of weeks ago:



i was sceptical about reading a vampire novel with the overflow of fangs in pop culture at the moment, but i enjoyed it. i found the writing cheesey sometimes (just read the strap line on the cover) and the dialogue bugged me a few times. this stuff didn't really matter, though, because i liked the story enough to finish it very quickly by my standards.

that's the one book I have read of that list, I guess I didn't do much reading in 2012 lol, but it was a great and fast read. I think you can finish it in one sitting if you start early in the day, definitely grabs you. the premise felt like it bit Dostoyevsky a little hard but is a much faster and easier read.
