Sort of a let down...
on September 26, 2012
I bought this as a joke for a man obsessed with meat who talks incessantly about the 50 shades phenomenon. The book is cute and has lots of recipes. I like the content. My issue is in the price. I was disappointed when I opened up a book thinner than my Good Housekeeping magazine. My daughter has thicker children's books. It is about a quarter inch thick (or less) with a flimsy paper cover. I guess I was expecting something sturdier for $25. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with the book itself. The problem is with the price. I could see this book selling at $7.99, MAYBE $15 because of the name play and all the 50 shades propaganda it's riding off of. But $25...no way. Make sure you really want this book if you intend to buy it, because it is over priced. (which is a shame because it is a cute idea.)
