Cooking for Picasso by Camille Aubray is written beautifully. There is so much descriptive imagery that beautifully outlines the settings. This book has intrigue, drama, and characters that feel real.
I’m new to audio books. I wasn’t quite sure that I’s like it, but I was pleasantly surprised. Usually I listen to mindless radio in the mornings. I decided to break this routine and listen to the audio book instead. I’m very happy that I made this decision.
Mozhan Marno has the most calming voice. It beats out the stress of traffic. She uses different voices for each character and it’s just so nice to be able to unwind to this beautiful story. It’s like I’m a child at story time again. However, this is definitely not a children’s story. There is a lot of depth. The book pulls together the stories of many different characters seamlessly. Occasionally, the book will switch view points, but it felt natural.
My one warning is that although the book does not condone misogyny in any way, there are many misogynistic characters involved. However, I would definitely recommend this book to others.
