    Waiting for a second helping

    Warm, charming and painfully real. A gifted story teller in and out of the kitchen. A brillaint book! A must for a food lover or a person hungry for a good read.

    An outstanding bildungsroman

    Toast is a poignant book about a young child's life and adolescence. What is particularly interesting is the book's point of view, written through the child's consciousness. This technique also correlates with situational irony, where the reader understands the child's life, long before the child does.

    I Also Recommend:

    Disjointed story telling, explicit scenes

    I had high hopes for this book, but after nearly 70 pages, I am setting it aside. For one thing, this is not a "story," there is no plot and nothing to motivate you to keep turning pages. The book is simple divided with title headers related to a particular British food item. I am not British so I can't really relate to the food items. Secondly, I know life isn't all smiles and roses, but I'm been disappointed to read some passages that hinted at molestation and voyerism. Not my cup of tea. All in all, if you are looking for a good "foodie memoir" to read, I cannot recommend this book, mainly because it is not a story, merely just a recollection of memories and events surrounding particular food items. It seems Ruth Reichl will always have the monopoly on the best food memoior writing.

    One of the best Memoirs that has ever been contemplated

    Excellent. The way Slater could have thought to write about how different food items remind him of things
