    *facepalm* *train wreck* This started as a good idea. And that's where it should have stopped. The writing is all over the place. Following paragraphs don't match the preceeding paragraph i.e. completely different subjects. Section titles have nothing to do with what is written in the section. Heck, whole chapters have nothing to do with chapter titles. It feels like the author read some books and then wrote this book.

This book is all over the place and has little to do with the subject she allegedly is writing about. The research is poor or nonexistent. There are incorrect and even racist terms used i.e. Islamists instead of Muslims (Muslims are followers of Islam while Islamists are terrorists who use Muslim theology fashioned into an ideology of hate and violence). The author should stick to cooking and not write about history. This read like a bad middle school essay. Not worth reading.

    This book had some interesting insight into the history of the the way weddings and food are intertwined. However, the author jumped from topic to topic manically and it was difficult to follow. Overall, it was interesting but not as well written as it could have been.

    I was interested in the concept of this book and there was a range of interesting facts although it felt that it covered too much to really get into detail and there were so many interesting facts that they didn't all seem to flow.

    Fairly interesting book, but it wasn't about wedding feasts. Too bad they didn't re-think that title. I'm sure there were some disappointed readers.

    Part history, part folklore, part sociology. Sadly does not include any recipes.
