Consider the Oyster Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Consider the Oyster

Fisher's second book, dated 1941, is slim and specific: It's about oysters. How they live, where they're found, but mostly how many different ways one may eat them. There are lots of recipes (even one on how to make a pearl!), and a few anecdotes relating to oysters' reputation as aphrodisiacs, supposed source of poison death, etc. All related with Fisher's usual pleasantly witty and sophisticated voice, but one of her slighter efforts. Recommended mainly for Fisher fans and people who are nuts about oysters.
