September Reading 5/2

Gourmet Rhapsody
Muriel Barbery

The most revered food critic in the world only has 48 hours to live. How will he spend it? Unfortunately, not in a very interesting way. He is on the search for the "taste" that has alluded him all this time. The story switches between him looking for this taste, and his family and friends speaking about him. And since he was a total asshole his entire life. His children hate him, people who have worked with him hate him, some pets like him, but that's about it. I was very disappointed with this story on so many levels. The story had true potential, it just never gets anywhere close to reaching it.
