This book was creepier than I expected.
I’ve been waiting for this book to come out for ages. Months. Years, even. The release date kept moving, and I (and I’m sure many other readers) kept waiting … and then, finally, it appeared.
I hated the ending to this series.
Seriously. I’m firmly on the “WTF?!?” camp’s side.
Having said that, I have to admit that I didn’t find this book quite as appealing as Stiff or Bonk. I thought that, since the subject of food interests me, I might find Gulp to be more interesting … but alas, that was not the case. I don’t think it’s because Roach did any less of a great job with Gulp than with her previous books.
This book explains why so many people choose to eat this way, and how it can benefit you and your body. You may or may not agree with the principles behind it, but if you are looking for an explanation of why people do it, you could do worse than to read It Starts With Food.
