Reviews - What do customers think about Cafeteria Lady Eats Her Way Across America?

May be okay for kids but adults will find this mostly drivel  Dec 29, 2009
Disclaimer: I used to work for Gospel Light, the parent company of publisher Regal Books.

Thank goodness this was a gift and I didn't waste real money. Perhaps this book isn't categorized correctly -- it seems to be aimed at the elementary-to-middle school crowd, not adults. The writing is simplistic, even downright childish, and somebody please get this woman a thesaurus! Everything is described as "fun" or "interesting," sometimes in adjacent sentences. After about the fourth tiresome mention of Bolton's purported bad cooking, I wanted to whack her with her own book. Her constant self-berating continued, mercilessly, throughout this endless chatter of hers. Sorry Martha, it didn't add anything to your writing and should have been removed by the editors.

Quite frankly, who really cares about each student who invited Bolton to their school -- the details of the kid's interests, school, other activities, food likes, family, etc.? It seems like there was a lot of filler to make this a book instead of a magazine article. There really wasn't one funny, or even humorous, sentence in the entire book. Such a shame.

I honestly wanted to love this book but was sorely disappointed. I gave this two stars only because there were helpful trivia tidbits regarding the states Bolton wrote about, but then again, not all 50 were visited, for some reason that wasn't explained.
