This book is a must!! What a graceful witness. Through the honesty of feelings shared and humility of the characters testimony, evolving through the pages, this is a must read! It will be a balm to a hurting heart, and a lift to a sagging walk
This book is very easy reading, extremely entertaining, so uplifting and totally hilarious!! There were many times when my husband would stop me and demand to know why I was laughing so hard. I found myself rooting for the main character (Lex), silently cheering her on and encouraging her to trust in our Heavenly Father. The plot is great and the conversations very real (I'm Chinese, I understand and appreciate all the Chinese/Asian humour, and I'm a girl so I immediately felt connected to Lex). Most of all this book leaves you wanting more!
Sushi For One was a very good read! I was hooked right from the beginning, and read the whole book in about 2 hours. I really liked reading about Asian culture as it wasn't something I was familiar with. Camy Tang did a great job on this book and I can't wait to read the stories about the rest of the cousins!
I love Sushi for One! I found it to be a very enjoyable read. Camy Tang writes very well and the story drew me in right away. I am not very familiar with Asian culture so I also enjoyed learning more through the eyes of the main character.I thoroughly enjoyed Camy's characters. I think she did an amazing job of helping the reader "get to know" them and their idiosyncrasies. If you are looking for a great read give Camy Tang's Sushi for One a try! You won't be sorry!
I'm a big fan of chick lit, and I'm really glad to have picked up Camy's Sushi series. In Sushi for One?, there was so much happening in the story that I felt like I was watching a TV series. I couldnt let the book go because of all the enjoyable characters and scenes Lexs very annoying grandmother, her silly brother who keeps on setting her up with every guy he meets, Aiden, the silent observer and her physical therapist, Mimi, the flirtier cousin and her three closest cousins and friends, Trish, Venus and Jenn. Even if there was a lot happening, everything went well together and was somehow significant as the story goes on.Lex reminded me of myself, and consequently, my other character in my 2006 NaNoWriMo novel, Rain. She was such a control freak, and I knew that if I was thrown into her position (thank God for not having a grandmother like hers!), I would probably be doing the same thing. I felt sorry for her when she lost everything, and sympathized even more when the people she trusted to be there left her alone. As the praise on the back of the book said, I definitely started rooting for Lex until the very end, which was indeed very satisfying.The faith issue in the novel is melded quite well. I loved the scene where Lex finally surrendered it gave me tears when I re-read the part and realized what was really happening. And Im definitely curious about how the Christ painting looked like. I bet Id be crying like a baby once I saw it. The ending felt a bit rushed with all the events that happened one after the other, but it was still a nice wrap-up. Sushi for One? is such a fun book, and it inspired me to continue writing my own chick lit.
