2.0 out of 5 stars It's really all about the Cheese. October 22, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Truly, this would be an interesting book for those whose life revolves around cheese. There's a few poems about cheese and some historical events which included cheese. The author has included lots of trivia with cheese information. The parts I read did not get into the process of cheese making nor included any recipes for making cheese or the use of cheese in meals.

I could not read too much into the book (only about 35%) due to the dry nature of the book. There were no errors that I came across. The structure of the kindle version was fine - sans a few alignment issues.

I was more or less expecting something along the lines of recipes with cheese and was thus a bit disappointed.

Good for someone with a fascination with cheese.

5.0 out of 5 stars cheese words January 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An absolutely delightful read of all things cheese. Filled with astonishing facts, trivia and interesting valuable information that you can actually use to choose good cheese for yourself and your own table. Nice easy light reading with many background stories to make it more than a "foodie" book by far. Recommended especially if you travel alot like we do (Vanabode) because cheese keeps good even outside the cooler.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good cheese history February 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got this book looking for information on the process of cheese making. It has very little specific information on that, but I did enjoy reading the history and geographic influences that have shaped cheese over the centuries.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good basic info for cheese March 13, 2012

I liked it - it is what the title said it was so if you're thinking it was something more, it's not. Not too technical.

I was looking for recipes, NOT history. Why wasn't this information available? Or did I miss it? How do I delete it?

3.0 out of 5 stars good and ok February 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't know much about food so I did pick up a few things about cheese, and I did buy a little cheese after reading the book. Maybe it's just not my subject.

2.0 out of 5 stars Well, it was free.
So I can't complain too much, I suppose. But I found the book boring, pretentious and tedious to read. Great to browse if you can't sleep.
