    From farmer Joel Salatin's point of view, life in the 21st century just ain't normal. In Folks, This Ain't Normal, he discusses how far removed we are from the simple, sustainable joy that comes from living close to the land and the people we love.

    Break out the TV dinners! From the author who gave us Cod, Salt, and other informative bestsellers, the first biography of Clarence Birdseye, the eccentric genius inventor whose fast-freezing process revolutionized the food industry and American agriculture.

    David says: "Birdseye - one step too far for Kurlansky"

    What would have made Birdseye better?

    Anyone who has listened to Cod, or Salt, knows what a good Kurlansky narrator sounds like. I don't want to sound mean, but I found myself flipping it off, because of the narration. Pauses and breaks in mid sentence, gasps for air, flat toned vocals, deadpan. It felt like they grabbed a guy off the street with dyslexia and asked him to narrate a book. I made it 1/4 way and deleted it out of frustration.I bet the book is good, but the audio one stinks!


    Would you be willing to try another book from Mark Kurlansky? Why or why not?

    I highly recommend Salt and Cod, more entertaining books by Kurlansky.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jon Van Ness’s performances?

    Not for all the tea in china. He has narrated only one book in his life, and that's one too many.
