    1. This is more of a novella -- very short and only 4 chapters. Being that short you'd think I'd really remember what the whole thing was about. I'm not really sure there was much to take away from it, or I just don't remember because I was reading this before going to bed. I believe each chapter was set in a different memory of the narrator, and the memories did all connect, but I just didn't get much out of it.This is a terrible review. If you want to read a short book, then try it out. Otherwise [...]

    2. For a such a short novel, it leaves its mark in my mind. The young narrator who absorbs everything around him, only to realize he does understand the goings-on of his parents, is an impacting character who points out to the reader that we must not underestimate the knowledge of young people and the impressions we leave upon them.His love of cuisine, which reveals his zest for life; the love he has for his parents and how he unknowingly tries to keep them together, further revealing his perceptio [...]

    3. This was sold as a novel, but is really a novella. The book begins a bit slowly, then picks up steam when the young narrator starts exploring his passion for food. We are then taken to the coast and shown small pictures of his family heritage, which is fascinating, and the current unraveling of his family, then the story ends abruptly and finishes with the grown narrator relating a fairy tale to the local children.This abrupt change away from the real emotion in the book is jarring and mars what [...]

    4. In mijn audioversie bleek het laatste hoofdstuk te ontbreken Dat was wel een heel abrupt einde. Gelukkig heb ik ook de papieren versie! Want hoofdstuk 4 maakt het boek meer de moeite waard, omdat het verhaal daarmee naar de tegenwoordige tijd wordt gehaald; in context wordt geplaatst. Het zou me niet verbazen als ik überhaupt meer van Modelvliegen zou hebben genoten als ik het fysieke boek zou hebben gelezen :\
