I got this book for free. My rating for Corked – 3 About: “Corked” by Kathryn Borel is a memoir of a trip Ms. Borel and her father took down the unfamiliar roads of France in 2005. This was not just a road trip, Mr. Borel, a Frenchman, is a wine connoisseur who posses limitless knowledge of wines and ways to annoy his daughter. Thoughts: Synopsis: Kathryn Borel, having a killed a man in a traffic accident, decides to reconnect with her father who, according to her, will ultimatly die. The father and dauther team up to visit French vineyards in an effort to connect. Throughout the trip Mr. Borel’s knowledge of fine wines shines through while his daughter feels obligated to make him proud and bond over their mutual love of wine. I liked this book much better than the other selfish and needy memoir (book review) that made far more headlines this year.
