Although, I had my eye on reading this book for some time I ended up having to read this book for class. Audiobook was a big time saver during my morning commute. Book was incredibly dense at times, for instance the segment on corn seemed to go on for hours. However, I enjoyed the segments on Polyface farm and the foraging/ hunting expeditions with Angelo. Also of note is the book has many key characters that are in an excellent documentary film called FOOD INC.
I listen to this story every year around the holidays. It's one of my favorites. It's heartbreaking and beautiful just the same. Vance is an excellent narrator and shows the emotions ever so strongly in his telling. It's safe to say that Mary Shelley wins the game that Byron, Poladari, and her husband Percy played long ago in that Italian villa...
