    In the picturesque village of Guzmán, Spain, in a cave dug into a hillside on the edge of town, an ancient door leads to a cramped limestone chamber known as “the telling room”. Containing nothing but a wooden table and two benches, this is where villagers have gathered for centuries to share their stories and secrets - usually accompanied by copious amounts of wine. It was here, in the summer of 2000, that Michael Paterniti found himself listening to a larger-than-life Spanish cheesemaker named Ambrosio Molinos de las Heras as he spun an odd and compelling tale about a piece of cheese.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    First time I've found the reader to detract. Too much artifice/contrived in words chosen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Humor, learned a lot about Spain, history of Spain and world incorporated in to story,


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of L.J. Ganser?

    ANYONE.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Too long - not enough pace in story. Too much digression and redundant.
