Julie and Julia

Posted on: 08/15/2010

Adorable book and movie! However the real Julie Powell is not the same girl portrayed in the movie. Her second novel Cleaving: a story of Marriage, Meat andObsession is quite intimate and destroys any sweet notions you may have had about Julie Powell. In this story, she describes going on to become an apprentice butcher, an affair she had and she even admits to not being anything like the girl in the movie. It is difficult to reconcile this when I catch Julie/ Julia on television. I doubt this second novel will be made into a movie, thank goodness! It is not the enjoyable read her first novel was, skip it, you will not miss anything important.

Really? Not sweet and innocent? I didn’t even know she had a second novel out! Anyway, I’ll take your word for it when you say it’s not important; I don’t want to read anything by Julie Powell if she’s not being the cute, innocent girl from Julie and Julia!

Go on line and look her up on wiki, I was very disappointed, her first book and the movie were adorable!
