    This was just great I found all the characters very relatable Ruth, the offspring of Holocaust survivors and your neurotic Jewish New Yorker her father Edek, said survivor, irrepressible optimist Zofia and Walentyna, his newly arrived Polish friends and all the others The only problem I had all the time I was craving meatballs I was thisclose to catching the IKEA bus and spending some quality time at their restaurant, even it it s just lame Swedish meatballs I do wish the YGHB restaurant was real and had a Stuttgart branch.

    This book wandered around, sat down, had a cuppa, maybe a few bolls and wandered off again Still not sure what the story was, but it certainly took me along for the ride Other friends of mine who can t bother with a book that doesn t go anywhere would have given up before the girls even arrived in town I stuck around though, even if just for the chance to wonder if the bolls cafe exists..

    Lily Brett, I bought this book thinking it would be a follow up on Too Many Men Seriously, what were you thinking This novel has the same characters, but suddenly they are living in an alternate reality There are references made to many events from the previous book but the timelines are wrong Suddenly this woman has 2 grown up children and the relationship that she had with her most recent ex partner which was so poignant in the last book, never happened This was a frustrating experience a rather confusing sort of ground hog day What a waste of time Didn t even bother finishing it.

    I will admit I did not enjoy the first 30 pages or so Brett s writing style seemed amateurish and the story didn t interest me However, I always give books 50 pages before putting them down, and I was absolutely hooked by that point Brett s characters are memorable and her writing is hilarious, particularly in how Ruth thinks she has many neurosis , and the conversations between Ruth and her father, Edek While Brett is no Wodehouse, I felt a similar sort of pleasure and appreciation for the lightheartedness while reading this story, and was similarly saddened when I finished the novel.

    I really didn t enjoy this book I felt the author was tring to make some big life points about issues facing women mid life but it all went nowhere I found the acccent of the father really annoying and what was the point of her husband being away in Australia and what happened to the women s group she never really formed and the constant references to Zofia s breasts served what narrative purpose

    I laughed and I laughed and I laughed What else can I say Food, Manhattan, a neurotic Jewish daughter, a fun loving Jewish father, and some busty and lusty Polish womenit makes for one good read.

    I laughed out loud reading this book Brett keeps the atmosphere light even though the topics are sometimes heavy Clever and fun

    Cute I picked it because of the title, as I often do There s a guy in it whose second language is English The accent is portrayed well in the writing, but that part gets annoying.

    Weak plot Pedestrian writing The story is based around setting up a restaurant with the same name as this novel, which sells meatballs No.
