    A lot of people don t know this, but Anthony Bourdain used to write fiction, most people are aware of him for his tv shows A Cooks Tour, No Reservations and Layover along with his food writing and his 1 cookbook However, before all of this, back when he was still the chef at Les Halles in New York City, he wrote 3 books of fiction Sadly they did not sell well and only due to his later fame were they rediscovered That s really too bad, because they re great.This shouldn t come as a surprise, A lot of people don t know this, but Anthony Bourdain used to write fiction, most people are aware of him for his tv shows A Cooks Tour, No Reservations and Layover along with his food writing and his 1 cookbook However, before all of this, back when he was still the chef at Les Halles in New York City, he wrote 3 books of fiction Sadly they did not sell well and only due to his later fame were they rediscovered That s really too bad, because they re great.This shouldn t come as a surprise, but his fiction usually revolves in some way around the food industry, specifically cooks and restaurants Also, organized crime is a large theme as well, again, not a shocker for anyone familiar with Bourdain and his work He s always been public about his fascination with that particular world.Bone in the Throat revolves around Tommy Pagana and his girlfriend Tommy is an aspiring chef whose family has lots of mafia connections Through these connections Tommy gets a job at a restaurant, he s just trying to learn how to be a chef, but the mafia and their demands keep getting in his way How he and his girlfriend navigate this is the plot of the book.And this is a GREAT book folks I m a fan of Bourdain and he s one of the few authors who s never once disappointed me Now that I ve said this, it will probably happen I recommend Bone in the Throat highly, you won t be sorry you picked it up

    This was a light read And a great one.I was watching the Sopranos and wanted to read a light novel involving the wise guys I had seen Tony s tv shows and read his fantastic book, Kitchen Confidential So, this book was exactly what I had hoped it would be.

    I went into this with no expectations, but it turned out to be great fun Snarky, funny and entertaining, just like his food books But with murder most foul RIP, Mr Bourdain.

    On the one hand, this novel reads like a caricature of The Godfather, like the fantasy of someone who has watched one too many Martin Scorsese movies On the other hand, it is full of action, ribald dialogue, and asides about food that only a master chef could deliver Not great literature in that regard Bourdain is to Mario Puzo what Krispy Kreme is to fine French pastry, but you gotta admit, sometimes you d really rather have a damned doughnut.

    I m a huge fan of Anthony Bourdain Having watched him compose beautiful stories through food and culture on his television shows, I knew he wouldn t disappoint me as a writer of fiction His book Bone in the Throat was not as elegant and interesting as I had assumed it would be, but knowing Bourdain s taste for foul language and getting at the heart of a story helped me sink my teeth into this book The story involves a group of mafia types, police, and restaurant junkies who are playing a ga I m a huge fan of Anthony Bourdain Having watched him compose beautiful stories through food and culture on his television shows, I knew he wouldn t disappoint me as a writer of fiction His book Bone in the Throat was not as elegant and interesting as I had assumed it would be, but knowing Bourdain s taste for foul language and getting at the heart of a story helped me sink my teeth into this book The story involves a group of mafia types, police, and restaurant junkies who are playing a game of merry go round to see which side wins I found myself not caring too much for any of the characters, but I think that s the point You re not supposed to fall in love with these people They re realistic in that they have good and bad qualities They re flawed I ended up rooting for a couple of characters who got mixed up in all that was going on and hoping they d come out on top They didn t come out unscathed in an ending that wasn t quite what I expected I ownof Mr Bourdain s books that I look forward to reading in the near future

    Unfortunately, this novel had too many characters The main one s were not really developed effectively I struggled to root for anyone I knew that I was mean to root for the chef and the sous chef, but I just couldn t However, there is an excellent moment with a meat slicer that I found fun To be fair, this isn t my usual fare I may be ill equipped to judge.

    Touted as a snarky mystery, this really is just fiction, almostof a character study This is one book I had to make myself finish I had a hard time keeping track of the characters who is this guy again until late in the book because few were fleshed out enough to stick with me.
