Comments Southern Fried Sushi

  1. I wanted to read contemporary books and I want to like the books I read and when I don t I sometimes feel that I m being overly critical and mean Which is the case with this book And I don t enjoy that Here s the thing This isn t actually an awful book It s just I didn t like the main character at all and sometimes wanted to throw my kindle into the seat in front if me on the airplane Hard She was obtuse And judgmental And irrational sometimes And one dimensional in the way that she made blind [...]


  2. Southern Fried Sushi by Jenifer Rogers SpinolaThe story is told through the eyes of the main character Shiloh P Jacobs She is living and working as a reporter in Japan She spends her money on keeping up her image and on frivolous things Her fiance, Carlos, is from Argentina and is quite the looker She is estranged from her parents When her dad left when she was seven her mom kind of lost it and now that she made a name for herself she was fine without them, even though her mom had been trying to [...]


  3. This was actually SUPER good.I d been eyeing it for a few weeks at the church bookstore, but always not having enough money or wanting a historical one and ending up passing it up But then, when I saw another girl looking at it, I figured I better grab it before it was gone The church bookstore never orders the same fiction book twice if it s not francine rivers xDDD And it was surprisingly amazing After reading a bunch with Christ as an afterthought, I was losing hope, but this one was shockin [...]


  4. I hated this book for so many reasons 1 Shiloh is a self centered, judgmental, arrogant brat for most of the story, making it extremely difficult to care about what happens to her 2 she constantly refers to herself as Shiloh P Jacobs which gets old after the first time 3 the ridiculously unrealistic portrayal of characters someone who grew up in New York has never had root beer, iced tea, or pecan pie What And what person in the US in 2011 thinks camera phones are super fancy You re telling me s [...]


  5. I grabbed Southern Fried Sushi when it was free for Kindle because the cover is cute and the description sounded interesting I had no idea that it was Christian fiction when I started reading Apparently I now need to start checking publishers before purchasing titles.The story started off well written with an interesting plotline and fun characters Unfortunately once Shiloh reaches rural Virginia the rest of the book is like being hit over the head with a large Bible repeatedly Every situation s [...]


  6. I saw this book last year when it first came out and because of the title, I glanced over it But somehow I didn t think it would be the story for me, so I left it What a bad idea I should have grabbed it up immediately As a southern girl myself who moved to the big city, I can absolutely relate to Shiloh s culture shock The quirky neighbors, the friendly people, waving at everyone you meet regardless if you know them or not this story was like going home again Ms Spinola did an excellent job of [...]

  10. The book is written in the first person, which may put some readers off However, I would encourage those people to give it a try they will be pleasantly surprised Shiloh, the narrator, is an award winning journalist who grew up in New York and who is now working for Associated Press in Tokyo and engaged to Carlos, an Argentinean expatriate also based in Tokyo She is hardworking, ambitious, loves all things Japanese particularly the food , and never wants to leave, particularly as she is estrange [...]

  14. When I picked up this book in the free section of Kindle Library, I was unaware it was a christian novel The preaching was a little heavy handed, but I was able to power through it to read the story behind the sermon The main character was realistic and she is easy to learn to care about She s much like any of us, confused and going through a rough patch The story is generally well written though I m not sure if its the problem of Kindle formatting or the editor but several times there are words [...]

  19. This is a hard book to review I wasn t aware before starting it that it was Christian fiction, for starters Next, the Christian characters in the book were so matter of fact and nonchalant about their faith, and no beating over the head going on, that it was a nice change from other, similar books except that the main character, Shiloh, remarked on this attitude on about every other page, which made it turn into a beating over the head of another sort In several spots, characters magically becam [...]


  20. I have to be honest and say that I picked this book up because I thought it would be a fun light read I had just finished a very heavy serious book and was looking for a palette cleanser before I dove into another serious book I was not disappointed in the least in this wonderful story, in fact I was blown away The title is catchy and the synopsis sounds interesting and fun The surprise comes with the depth of this novel.The Gospel is presented over and over in a very natural conversational way [...]

  23. Southern Fried Sushi is a beautifully written novel with a vibrant and colorful cast of characters The Christian faith is exquisitely demonstrated through heartwarming friendships, people who trust God in all circumstances of their lives, and the true meaning of forgiveness.Jennifer Rogers Spinola is a powerful new voice in Christian fiction I am eagerly anticipating Like Sweet Potato Pie the second novel in the Shiloh Jacobs trilogy Read More


  24. I had no idea of the Christian influence when I picked this up I don t mind a little of that, but this was almost nothing but Christian philosophy once you re about halfway through The storyline never really completed Little details were left undone like whatever happened with the whole hair color thing If you re not going to use it, don t write it in Some of this was really over the top and unrealistic also.


  25. First, I ll label the genre as Christian Chick Lit I knew that going in and that was part of the appeal for me I was in the mood for a light, uplifting read and that was exactly what I got The story, the way I see it, is of a young woman who has fled from her broken childhood and of God, who pursues her and woos her to himself The characters are fun and oh, how I would like to be in their midst


  26. This novel focuses on the heroine s salvation experience MUCH than many Christian fiction books I have read It makes very clear the doctrines of sin, forgiveness and Christ s sacrifice for sinners The writing is a bit simple, and the main characters are a bit silly at times, but several good morals are taught The main romantic interest is kind, careful of the heroine s reputation, and unpushy.This would be a good book for teens Absolutely clean Recommended



  27. This was much better than I expected Especially since I m not particularly religious I felt like we were kind of left with no closure at the end though Is a sequel out there or planned



  28. Southern Fried Sushi is a beautifully written novel with a vibrant and colorful cast of characters To read this review in its entirety, please visit bookreviewsandbykathy
