    I love food I expect most people do but I don t consider myself a foodie , however, even I could appreciate the nuances and subtleties of food as presented in this work The Cook follows the intense life of Mauro, an economics student turned chef who flits between jobs and school, never settling down for long His social life and health deteriorate as he works 70 hour weeks but he can t stop for long.

    If this novel taught me anything, it s that I myself never want to enter the restaurant business The fast paced work, the long shifts, the intense competition between colleagues I think I ll just stick to enjoying food.

    I received an advance copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
