I highly recommend seeing the Bill Buford interview about the book on "Charlie Rose".
Mr. Buford is a very interesting and engaging personality. I had no prior interest in cooking or chefs but after that interview, I had download this book to learn about his adventure in becoming a chef. It is fascinating and I think he does a very nice job in reading his book. About half way through the book, I just had to go out and have a gourmet Italian dinner!
The previous reviewer is exactly right. The audiobook of "The Prophet" read by Paul Sparer is beautifully done, really a religious experience, as befits this wonderful book. From the sample here, this audiobook has no feeling and almost sounds like a computer-generated voice. Don't let it ruin "The Prophet" for you, skip it.
