    Throughout history, food has acted as a catalyst of social change, political organization, geopolitical competition, industrial development, military conflict, and economic expansion. An Edible History of Humanity is a pithy, entertaining account of how a series of changes---caused, enabled, or influenced by food---has helped to shape and transform societies around the world.

    How could the performance have been better?

    Narrator was not engaging and slow. I had to speed the reading up in order not fall asleep. The narrator for Standage's other book made the book come to life, this narrator did not.

  • Zombie Fallout: Zombie Fallout, Book 1

    This is the story of Michael Talbot, his family, and his friends: a band of ordinary people trying to get by in extraordinary times. When disaster strikes, Mike, a self-proclaimed survivalist, does his best to ensure the safety and security of those he cares for. Book one of the Zombie Fallout Trilogy follows our lead character at his self-deprecating, sarcastic best. What he encounters along the way leads him down a long dark road, always skirting the edge of insanity.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend it if you like zombie fiction. It was interesting perspective from a different character than you get in alot of horror books.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed at times.

  • Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

    While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.

    Haden says: "My friends thought I was crazy."
    "Dry but great story"
    Overall

    If you are a history buff like me, this is the book for you. It is very historically acurate with a super interesting story intertwined. It is very dry in the telling because it written as if from a journal. Fun perspective on a historical figure.
