Palin is so direct, honest and revealing about his feelings and reactions to new experiences. He is a avid traveller - boldly going places that I will probably never be able to go to and giving me the feeling I have been there too.
Palin is so much "happier" than Paul Theroux's travel books - Palin's enthusiasm to "be going" and to meet and visit with new people is the BEST of travel narrative!
No one reads a books quite like the author. Palin has a great voice.
It often makes me laugh. Palin is a funny man. He is the person you want around in times of trouble - flexible, intently interested in "the present", letting go of plans that will no longer work. Even when talking about things that are being lost, polluted, or ruined the sadness is offset by the simple and yet powerful human adaptations to difficult situations.
Palin's books, movies and audio books are a wonderful way to see the world in the company of a happy, good natured traveller!
Kingsolver tackles a big issue in a personal perspective with eloquence.
Food choices impact our health, our community and our world - it can seem like too big of a topic for one person to make a difference. This story brings it to a level where we can understand that small choices can have a big impact.
I enjoy their voices. I think their three voices with three perspectives works well.
I enjoyed the entire book. It was interesting to hear about their food choices when travelling.
I try to get everyone I know to read this book.
I have listened many times. I enjoy non-fiction. This is articulate, honest and believable.
The personal honesty and the two different takes on the same events.
Great voices and I always enjoy a writer with a good voice. No one reads it like the writer - but not all writers have good voices. Martin and Emilio do.
Probably on a long flight... I never have that much time all at once.
The love this father and son have for each other is heartwarming. Great challenges could have split them apart, but the love and tough love / honesty carried the day.
