    "I think that Bluberries for Sal fits this topic well. It is a picture book so I assume that classifies as a fiction. Food does seem to play a big part in the book."

    "An amazing book written by an amazing author. It captures the essence of the American South in a bygone era so perfectly, it is almost mythical. It taught me some of the most valuable life lessons and has inspired me ever since I first read it all those years ago."

    "James and the Giant Peach is such a classic. I get it's about food but that's not really the point, not even food, a peach. Great movie though! I think I just don't like the wording of the topic."

    "A Christmas Carol is the old Dickens' work that described the story of the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge who gets visited by ghosts at night. It's likely that you already know it, as it was adapted into several Disney films and characters. It's a classic tale that kids love time and time again, and underlines the importance of not being a miserly old man. Of course that's just a small lesson of many, but it's an important one. Selfishness is not the way to live. Highly recommend as it's nice to see in book form as opposed to in the movies and shows."

    "While "The Secret Life of Bees" is certainly a great novel, I am would be remiss if I did not point out that it is not actually related to food. For that reason, and that reason only, I cannot agree that it is the best fiction book related to food, for that is not at all the case. It is however, a fantastic novel worthy of anyone's time"

    "The book was a required reading I can remember being assigned in 2009-2010 as a freshman in college. It was engaging and insightful reading about immigrants perspective from Asia post World War II. It was a nice break from the doom and gloom of what my history classes had provided. It was a refreshing book to read with four Chinese women who had moved to San Francisco and found comfort of home by playing mahjong and enjoying dim sum. Their tradition of bonding together and talking of their tragedies experienced in life continued on as their daughters continued this tradition. This book although sprinkled with tragic themes of loss also had underlying positive feelings and was an engaging and positive book."

    "This book is all over the place, but in a good way. The romance is minimal, so this is an adventure book at heart. It really puts perspective on how big our world is, without getting all preachy about humanity destroying it. That's pretty rare."
