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!
I highly recommend Salt and Cod, more entertaining books by Kurlansky.
Not for all the tea in china. He has narrated only one book in his life, and that's one too many.
Wonderful book! It will change how you think about buying anything from the Grocery.
I'm starting to buy local foods from local farmers .
