This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
I can't imagine anyone enjoying this other than the author herself. Enough with the whining, moping, and so on. This incessant complaining, moping, whining about her loneliness after separation from her husband because of job reasons can be of interest to no one. Do we want to read how she's so bored she spends her mornings wasting her time on Facebook or Skyping with her husband? If she'd stuck to the other parts of the story about foods and travels and so on this would have been an okay read (it's kind of dull and humorless even then), but as it reads now it's just like reading her diary entries and little else.
What could Ann Mah have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Written with more life and humor and cut out all the ENDLESS, repetitive personal stuff about her marriage and loneliness and boredom. If she's bored, we're even more bored.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mozhan Marno?
The narrator wasn't the problem here, it was the author (and really the author's editor).
What character would you cut from Mastering the Art of French Eating?
Any additional comments?
I tried. I really did. But this was just terribly, terribly unengaging. Every time I was interested in the subject of a chapter I found myself getting frustrated with the incessant droning on and on (and on and on) about how miserable the author was.

I loved the descriptions of food, of France and of a young marriage. What a gift!
