The result would be A. J. Jacobs. Definitely the funniest man in the room. His earlier book, The Know-It-All, hit such a high water mark for wit and wisdom that I feared that book's level of sassy insightfulness would be hard to surpass. His latest entry, My Life As An Experiment, nevertheless, floods the mind with wave upon wave of comic brilliance. Behind all the hilarity, however, there are some 'deep thoughts' ~ but I imagine Jacobs would be the last to admit it. Five-star listen.
The narrator Mike Boris brings new vigor and emotional depth to this classic tale. I only wish he would be asked to read more of the Jack London catalogue. For some odd reason, I had postponed reading this short book over five decades. Had I but known what a truly moving psychological journey it would take me on ~ an episodic narrative packed with a host of interesting characters, both canine and human ~ I would have devoured this story long ago. Five stars all the way.
Pitch perfect narration, His work truly enhanced an already masterful tale. I will keep my eyes opened for the name Mike Boris in the future.
