Like most of you, I imagine, I have given some thought as to which super power I would like to have. Some days I'd choose invisibility, some days, the ability to fly or hear thoughts but never would I choose the ability to taste feelings in the food I eat. That's right, Rose can taste the feelings of the cooks in the food they make. What a totally useless talent. Pointless really - and that pretty much sums up how I felt about this book.
I tried to like it - I really did. Remember when we were kids and we read a book for pure enjoyment. We didn't stop to analyse the relationship between Laura and Pa - we just enjoyed the interactions. We didn't spend time trying to figure out why we loved Anne (with an 'e') - it was enough just to know we loved her. So I thought I could try and read 'Lemon Cake' with that attitude and just enjoy the ride. Nope. Somehow it ended up just being a few hours of my life I will never get back. If you decide to read it anyway and, for some reason, like it, please post and tell me what I missed.
