    This book will appeal to foodies and those who are deprived of cookbooks in audio format. Molecular Gastronomy documents the sensory phenomena of eating and uses basic physics to put to bed many culinary myths. This audiobook presents pieces of conventional wisdom - such as whether it is better to make a stock by placing meat in already boiling water, or water before it is boiled - and gives its history before making scientific pronouncements.

    "A collection of essays, really"
    Overall

    If you do not know what a benzene ring is, you will not understand this book.
    I was expecting more an orderly introduction to molecular gastronomy, starting from basic principles, then building into complex concepts. Instead, this book reads like a collection of unconnected and very scholarly essays. A lot of the chapters/essays are long and dry, while others have practical information you can use in the kitchen.

    The largest known meteorite has been discovered, entombed in the earth for millions of years on a frigid, desolate island off the southern tip of Chile. At four thousand tons, this treasure seems impossible to move. New York billionaire Palmer Lloyd is determined to have this incredible find for his new museum. Stocking a cargo ship with the finest scientists and engineers, he builds a flawless expedition. But from the first approach to the meteorite, people begin to die....

    Lyn says: "Wonderful, Well researched, Page Turner"
    "Great book, bad narrator"
    Overall

    This is a great book, two thumbs up. But the narrator is extraordinarily bad; he uses a strange intonation more proper for dramatic poetry than prose. I will never buy another audiobook narrated by him, since his narration gets very much in the way and breaks my suspension of disbelief.
