    "What should we have for dinner?" To one degree or another, this simple question assails any creature faced with a wide choice of things to eat. Anthropologists call it the omnivore's dilemma. Choosing from among the countless potential foods nature offers, humans have had to learn what is safe, and what isn't. Today, as America confronts what can only be described as a national eating disorder, the omnivore's dilemma has returned with an atavistic vengeance.

    Stephen Redding says: "Great presentation of a moral dilemma"
    "I can't listen to his voice"
    Overall

    I have tried repeatedly but the narrator's overly stimulated and oratorial style is too annoying. I have listened to many audiobooks (surely over a hundred by now) and this is only the second one that bothered me like this.

    This is a shame because I really love to be told stories. I have the hardcover copy, and will have to read it myself...
