    From one of our most interesting literary figures, former editor of Granta, former fiction editor at The New Yorker, acclaimed author of Among the Thugs, a sharp, funny, exuberant, close-up account of his headlong plunge into the life of a professional cook.

    Grant says: "One of my favorite food books to date."
    "it's cookin'"
    Overall

    Who would have though that and audible description of someone's culinary adventures and expeditions into learning the craft could be so entertaining. I find that there is just the right balance between insightful observation and humour in this book. I learned more about preparing pasta than I ever thought possible while realizing that it is also about a way of live. If you care about good food you will care about this book.

    Story
    (903)

    The hero of John Kennedy Toole's incomparable, Pulitzer Prize-winning comic classic is one Ignatius J. Reilly, "huge, obese, fractious, fastidious, a latter-day Gargantua, a Don Quixote of the French Quarter". His story bursts with wholly original characters, denizens of New Orleans' lower depths, incredibly true-to-life dialogue, and the zaniest series of high and low comic adventures.

    Jon says: "Well Done"
    "boring and repetitive"
    Overall

    while the premise of the book seems interesting enough, (eccentric recluse with serious hygiene issues and a mother complex) it never goes anywhere. the first few times it is rather amusing to listen to the pseudointellectual rantings of the main character but the story never evolves beyond the level of charicatures. i made it through the first half of the download before i was disinterested and stopped listening.
