I'll start with the positive: there are moments in this that are genuinely interesting. These deal with the evolution of sushi, and this happens early on in the book, and it is, sadly, smattered, in between bouts of uninteresting prose that's written to try to make sushi matter more than it really does. The narrator was subpar, slightly nasal, and horrible at accents. And, what the narrator's voice does mostly is to really bring to the front how poor the writing is. There's a lack of adequate detail where it matters, and extraneous information that really has nothing to do with anything (do we really need to know that a "hot" sushi chef was asked out on a date by the son of basketball star Bill Walton?) germane. The author needs to focus, and instead he's all over the place. My advice: save your credit, and use it with another Audible selection more worthy of your time.
