Pairs. Allegra Goodman’s novel, The Cookbook Collector, tells the story of two sisters, one driven, the other dreamy. The contrasts of their lives and fortunes provide the raw material for exploring values, the dot-com bubble, terrorism, and the range of relationships. The dual stories are engaging and will provide entertainment for most readers, especially those who like romantic comedy paired with current events. At over 400 pages, there’s enough relaxing reading here to last for a day at the beach, and then some.
Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
