I don't know what to talk about in my essay fot Salt and SUB 4:00
I'm follwing the format and am writing about Salt first. Sense the book dosen't really tell a story I can't really critizize charecter development, time and setting or anything.
Can I have some suggestions please on how I should critizize this book on if it was successful (ouch) or not.
Are you talking about a book titled “Salt: A World History” by Mark Kurlansky? How much of it did you read?
Whatever the book title is, try explaining what you didn't like about it (or did like) in your own words.
I'm talking about Salt A Wrorld History
I read like the whole thing. I skipped a few pages here and there. like I said thought it was good it did it's purpose to inform me on salt and it's purpose. The only thing I didn't like was how he brought up reciepes left and right on how to make fermented stuff. I didn't like the book I just thought it did it's purpose.
I really don't know what to do.
You may find some of the readers' opinions at this website useful or interesting.
Many agree that the book is a collection of vignettes and recipes that attempt to show the importance of salt in human events. It may go a bit too far in an attempt to be entertaining, but it seemed to succeed.
I have not read the book. Don't be afraid to state your own opinions of the book. At least you won't have to write about plot, character development, and symbolism.
