    REVIEW ½ Soy Sauce for Beginners Soy Sauce for BeginnersInstagram || Twitter || Facebook || || PinterestI bought this book without reading the summary because at the time it was on sale for 199 down from 499 Later when I was trying to decide which Kindle book I wanted to read next I really took a look at the summary and my heart sank a little when I saw that it was gasp cringe women's fictionTo my surprise I actually really enjoyed SOY SAUCE FOR BEGINNERS Part of that is the heroine herself I wasn't sure how well I'd be able to relate to a Singaporean woman caught between two very different cultures She was born in Singapore but is the heir to an old and reputable soy sauce company She's separated from her husband who cheated on her with a college student and experiencing a lot of distress over what she wants to do with her li

    REVIEW ½ Soy Sauce for Beginners Soy Sauce for BeginnersI bought this book for cheap on fairly suspicious that this would end up being chick lit and my suspicions really were fairLet's just say it would take very little work to turn this into a Lifetime movie There's a little depth than that but it's slight enough to be edited out Our main character's really kind of a spoiled bitch with Parents Issues but none of that is explored enough to be something to make you go hmm The soy sauce angle is thankfully relevant but slight I craved Chinese food while and after reading which got this review its second starI feel happy for the author that she wrote this book and benevolent for being a pr

    REVIEW ½ Soy Sauce for Beginners Soy Sauce for BeginnersAs a dude who doesn't think this is chick lit I loved the book Just like me it's half eastern and half western with the other half lost in music school somewhere I didn't go to the SF Conservatory but I think I still might have the key to the practice rooms at the university where I did go even though that was 16 years ago and not too far away In that sense I feel like I know Gretchen the protagonist She has no idea what she wants in life stuck between her eastern half and her western half and just like me wondering if she suandered her potential in music academia Due to all of this she simply can't figure life out hangs out with all the wrong people who can't

    REVIEW ½ Soy Sauce for Beginners Soy Sauce for BeginnersI actually really loved this and I was surprised to see other reviews disparaging it in such a harsh way It's a novel about a woman at 30 who's getting divorced and goes home to Singapore temporarily to see her family and get herself together She has to put up with a lot of jerks almost all of whom are men This is most definitely not a love story which I thought was a major plus If anything the strongest relationships are between Gretchen and her mother and with her best friendIt's a sweet novel and while at times I did want from the writing I don't think it was a bad book or that I regret reading it If like me you've had this waiting in your ereader forever give it a tryUpdated 1210 to reflect that I did really enjoy this book
