Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed I only picked up this book because I had read another by the same author. I loved this book. Only downside is that you'll be craving sourdough bread and spicy soup.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A real pleasure to read Sourdough, like Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore, is a real pleasure to read, with just enough "magical fable" elements to keep you guessing at what will happen next.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Engineer turns baker in this unique story SOURDOUGH is the most unique book I’ve read to date. A magnificent marriage between software robotics and sourdough starter. The concept is so far out that it’s brilliant! When Lois inherits the sourdough starter from her favourite hole-in-the-wall restaurant complete with instructions to feed it and grow it she never imagined the new life she and her starter would take on. Lois feeds the starter and plays music to it and in return the starter sings and gurgles and produces loaf after loaf of delicious sourdough bread loved by her friends and co-workers. Soon the high demands of her engineering job get in the way of her sourdough production and Lois must choose between her well paid, intense career where she’s overworked and plagued with an unhealthy gut or design a robotic arm to make her beloved sourdough bread. SOURDOUGH is charming, soul-warming and makes me wish I had my very own starter culture to dote over and bake bread from.
