Book Review: My Life in France by Julia Child — 9 Comments

  1. I always think of her as this uber-competent woman; its nice to know that she made her share of cooking mistakes, like the rest of us 🙂

  2. I guess that watching the movie Julie & Julia has spoiled Julia Child for me. I never read anything by her yet, but the person she was in the movie made my neck hairs rise. Maybe this isn’t fair to Julia Child, but the “wounds” are still too fresh to look past them 😉

  3. I left this book with a deep, lifelong adoration for Julia Child. I’m so glad you enjoyed it too. She was nothing like I expected her to be, always a wonderful surprise!

  4. I was always a fan of Julia Child, and I also enjoyed reading this autobiography very much. I remember watching her cook on TV when I was young. She made it look so wonderfully easy!
