Book Review: Sourdough by Robin Sloan

Sourdough by Robin Sloan
Rating: ★★★★☆
Links: Amazon • TBD • Goodreads
Publication Date: September 5, 2017
Source: Borrowed

Lois Clary, a software engineer at a San Francisco robotics company, codes all day and collapses at night. When her favourite sandwich shop closes up, the owners leave her with the starter for their mouthwatering sourdough bread.

Lois becomes the unlikely hero tasked to care for it, bake with it and keep this needy colony of microorganisms alive.  Soon she is baking loaves daily and taking them to the farmer’s market, where an exclusive close-knit club runs the show.

When Lois discovers another, more secret market, aiming to fuse food and technology, a whole other world opens up. But who are these people, exactly?

One of the things that I really love about being able to listen to audiobooks at work is that I have the opportunity to listen to things that I probably wouldn’t get around to reading otherwise. Sourdough is one of those books.

I didn’t really know what this book was about, just that I’d seen a few good reviews of it and it was available at the library. This ended up being a really fun, light read and a classic kind of feel-good book. I loved the Lois Club and originally I thought that the author made it up, but it turns out that it’s a real thing!

The underground world of the farmer’s market was so much fun to read about! More than anything, though, this book made me want to bake some sourdough bread. Even writing this review is making me hungry. I’m headed over to my library’s website now to see if they have Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore.


Have you read Sourdough? Is it on your TBR?
