3.0 out of 5 stars MFK Fisher is somewhat over-rated as a food writer, January 27, 1998
This review is from: How to Cook a Wolf (Paperback)
MFK Fisher is somewhat over-rated as a food writer. This book has interest because it was written when food rationing was in force due to WWII. Rationing reminded her of other experiences of deprivation, which is the theme of the book. So-so writing, but a really good recipe for gingerbread. If you like gingerbread, this recipe alone is reason to read the book.

Being a lover of GINGERBREAD ~ thanks for mentioning that as now I will cook some of hers to see if it makes the cut!

Thanks for being brave enough to review against the common thought.

This author may really speak to those who read when the title was first released and their memories give a subjective rating. It really takes guts to speak your mind in this "ready, fire, aim" social commentary world.

But the reviewer has a tin ear from prose if he or she thinks the writing is "so-so".

Not everyone likes opera. Not everyone likes liver. Allowing someone to have a differing opinion is freedom of speech. Berating them for a differing opinion is bullying.

I don't see where anyone here is bullying this opinion. Pretty harsh to accuse someone of such a thing. When you post a review it is open for comments.
