Awesome book! Anthony Bourdain is a great writer and I'm glad he narrated. It felt like I was watching this book like a movie as I listened through.
The one problem was that the chapters were poorly separated and parts got cut off; nothing to do with the book.
Great back story on a guy we all know and some of us love;) from his tv travel adventures....loved the paperback and the audiobook. The fact that Anthony narrates it himself is the icing on the cake.
Always looking for a good book to escape into for a short period of time
The book was great Tony was great but there is a lot of white noise he cut are sometime so sudden and have a loud crack to them. It really took away from the book it was probably the worst recording I have ever heard really disappointed that audible let this recording go available to the public
I listened after reading years ago. Interesting but not nearly as compelling as Medium Raw. Bourdain sounds more like he is reading rather than story telling and his narration improved greatly with Raw. That being said this is worth a listen and (of course) more so for us in the life.
I love books and love talking about books. Hope my reviews are helpful!
No surprise, slinging a performance of his own work, Bourdain narrates in a manner that makes you feel there, in the moment, getting called an expletive and chopping your finger off. Great insight into the life of a chef generally, as well as the depravities of Bourdain's own. The man's a wordsmith, and to have him deliver the venomous (or affectionate) curses he used on the job, was a treat. Enjoyable for food lover, chefs, or anyone who likes brutal honesty and a discerning eye (appreciating debauchery can help too).
If you ever wonder how is life inside the restaurant industry, then you should,you must read this!!!! To make it even better, Anthony himself narrated this book!!
