Lonely Planet Discover Kauai by Lonely Planet Carolynz finished reading Lonely Planet Discover Kauai by Lonely Planet
Medium Raw by Anthony Bourdain Carolynz gave 2 stars to Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook (Hardcover) by Anthony Bourdain
This is one of the most self absorbed hypocritical books I had the ridiculousness to finish (ever?).

I've watched many seasons of his television shows, I've enjoyed his other books, but the high school name dropping review of the culinary world (you're in, your're out) kind of did me in with a sour aftertaste. The bizarre chapter where he describes in great detail his life with his daughter on the NYC Upper East side (I demand that you take that Ramones shirt off right now!) , constant need to proclaim Eric Ripert his best friend and the just rambly I think this, I am this, blah. I literally asked myself when I finished the last chapter, did he have an editor or did they just give him carte blanche?

I know, my bad for hanging in there and complaining about it (I believe I was the one who recently said life is too short to ride bad books out.) Of course the subject matter is great fun as are the characters who fill the book, but this former bad ass just needs to take a few bites of humility and step back for a second.
