Clearly I am in the minority given all of the positive reviews of this book but this one was not for me.
If of the above makes any kind of sense to you, or you just enjoy a good uplifting and non-dark read, give this one a try.
And then I realized. It's bacteria and fungus. Sloan managed to make me think bacteria and fungus was magical and quirky and likable and scary.
It starts slow. I put it down after 2 pages and nearly didn't pick it up again. And then yesterday I remembered that Sloan has already proven his worth to me with Mr. Penumbra and so I picked it up again and did not regret it. Push ahead. Meet the starter.

I’m relieved to say I loved it. So much so I was close to skiving off work to finish it and found it very hard to stop reading it whilst I was there – I could feel it singing to me from my office drawer – very mazg!
Once again it heavily features San Francisco complete with tech-creatives and a cool vibe. Sloan’s writing is refreshing and tongue in cheek without sounding too hipster.
It should come with a warning that you will become obsessed with nurturing and baking your own sourdough bread after reading it – that’s definitely on the agenda for my weekend.
In fact I enjoyed it so much that despite receiving a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review, I also purchased the hardback. Love love love it.
The love for food, and the people who make it, shines through - and the book is full of ideas. It's one of those books that makes me smile.
This was a thoroughly enjoyable book. It had all the sass, all the beauty and all the vivid imagery of San Francisco. It had the encroachingly uncomfortable technology industry. It had the incomer protagonist who was incredibly relatable, like in Penumbra. It had some really clever devices to tie together all these people. Then it had the Mazg tribe who are a soulful group, always on the move and who are close to food and music and all the best things in life. It just made me feel warm and fuzzy inside.
It's a clever book, it's an intelligent book, it was just totally magnificent. If I could buy it again on Kindle I would. It's worth the full price £4.99, probably more. If I could buy it again I would.
What am I on?
"Sourdough" has quirky bits in it but on the whole it really didn't engage me like Sloan's first book. I found that the second half of the book felt a bit bolted-on, as though someone had suggested that Sloan made the book more exciting, so he added a sort of horror movie cliche to the story. There were a few fun and sweet scenes to be found, but it didn't really work for me at all, although I was craving bread by the end as it sounded delicious.
