Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Mostly finished with this. I enjoyed it, although the author did some *strange* things. I didn't know too much about the history of prohibition, but was intrigued with his comparison to the war on drugs. We haven't learned much, have we?
Beautifully written. An education. You want to know about Chocolate, Absinthe and the difference between being a drug addict in Switzerland and being one in Norway then this is the book for you.
I completely want to do this. All of this. What a lucky jerk. Jealousy rears its ugly head.I'd give this book five stars if Bourdain had written it. Of course, then the writing would deserve it, but I digress...
