Welcome to Week 1 of the Online Book Club discussion of The Hundred-Foot Journey, by Richard C. Morais.
The Online Book Club, in case you’ve never joined us before, is a book discussion group that takes place entirely online. Each week, I write a new blog post that talks about different aspects of the book, and you can interact directly with me and other readers by leaving a comment in the comments section. Make sure you check back each week and see what new topics we are talking about.
The Hundred-Foot Journey is a culinary adventure that takes the reader from Mumbai to a small French town called Lumière. There are several really colorful characters, and there are mouthwatering descriptions of food throughout—make sure you don’t read this book while hungry!
There’s also a movie version available, so if you want to participate in the discussion, but you don’t want to read the book, you can still follow along. The movie stars Helen Mirren and was produced by Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg. Check out the trailer if you’re on the fence about watching the movie with us.
I hope you’ll follow along with us this month. Make sure to check back on June 12 as we discuss the first four chapters.
