Anthony Bourdain's Hungry Ghosts | Anthony Bourdain, Joel Rose

Mehso-so

Bourdains graphic novel is an interesting take on dining, with spirits that will make you squeal. Each story has it's own artist, and several of the stories really worked for me. The Pirates, Deep were good. The creepiest one, for me, was Boil In The Belly
This includes recipes and a guide to the spirits behind the horror in this book.
Not great,not bad...recommend for a quick fun read.

I loved everything about this chapter, and am liking this book so far! Bourdain‘s writing is so easy to read and down to earth that I‘ve gotten lost in almost every chapter.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Brain candy for Bourdain fans: violent, funny, smutty. And there‘s food, of course. He was a brilliant essayist and I love his nonfiction, so I wasn‘t sure what to expect here. These short stories starring the tough but likable Bobby Gold weren‘t mind-blowing, but they certainly were entertaining.

Megabooks I‘ve always loved the word “smutty.” I‘ve always felt it‘s a classy way to say not classy stuff! 🤣 Great review!! (edited) 3mo

As part of final torture, chefs are fed meat substitute and rice-a-rhino. Awesome. This is a dark view of culinary rivalry, likely based on a shred of metaphoric truth. Some food snobbery might look frighteningly accurate. There are moments when you feel Bourdain‘s Inner Ring knowledge - that is what makes the grain of truth stand out. The full circle of the taco cart and California roll jokes is a nice nod to things Bourdain has hinted elsewhere.

Starting today for a change of pace. I don't normally read non-fiction. I definitely make exceptions for some of my favorite people and their memoirs.

Bringing together so many things I love, this checks a lot of boxes: Bourdain, Japan, horror, art, food, etc. The stories are about as scary as you could expect, falling short of true terror, disturbing while remaining a fun, visually-entertaining read. I wish Bourdain had allowed himself more time to develop these tales, maybe making the original run 6 issues instead of only 4. Of course, I also simply wish Bourdain had allowed himself more time.

Ok, I promise that this is the last graphic novel for #MayMadnessWeek3 #graphicnovel challenge! 😁

Drawing from Japanese mythologies of yokai, yorei and obake, Anthony Bourdain cooked up eight terrifying tales of fear & food from around the world in Hungry Ghosts. Great artwork, enjoyed the stories but they're not scary for me.

Rating: 3🌟

Bobby Gold takes the fall for a friend and ends up in jail for 8 years. This follows his life as a bouncer and strong arm for the same friend involved in dodgy business. Hardboiled gangsters, lots of restaurant scenes and some explicit sex scenes.

I loved this and still can't get over what we lost when Anthony Bourdain took his life. An unnecessary and sad ending to a life well lived. You are missed! #Booked2019 #foodoncover #Spring #1toGo

BarbaraTheBibliophage Great review, and why haven‘t I heard of this book? Look how young he is ... 😰😰👨🏻‍🍳👨🏻‍🍳 7mo
IamIamIam @BarbaraTheBibliophage I wanted a pic that showed Bourdain in his natural habitat, even if he was a chameleon! There's even a bit of travel stuck in at the end!! Don't miss this one. You'll bust it out in an afternoon! 7mo

Bourdain couldn't help himself, even in a novel about gangsters and thugs. 💓
Such a great loss of genius and talent.

#AnthonyBourdain recommended this one. I‘ve picked it up and put it down before, it wasn‘t the story I was needing at the time. This time I am sucked in.
