Simply captivating. One of the best books I've read/listened to in the last five years. I read it before it became a national obsession and recommended it to lots of people. I agree with some reviewers that the unabridged version might be better, but this was awfully good.
This is one of the rare books that might be a better listen in an unabridged version. It's quite interesting in places, but SOOOO exhaustive in scope that I was bored in other places. However, I now truly appreciate the monumental role that salt has played in world history.
This book was a fun read. However, I found it rather repetitive of the Da Vinci Code in plot, premises, etc.
