I really loved the first book from this author, The Power of One, so I had to get this one. I thought that this was EVEN better! If you haven't listened to either, start with the first one and move to this - that way you can follow the characters. This story was true to life with the history of the apartheid. Enjoy!
Although this is a good story - the narration is way too monotone and really got on my nerves, and had to force myself to get to the end. I should have listened to the sample before getting it, but assumed the autobiographical nature of this would naturally be good - afterall, who could better tell a tradgedy but the victim herself? As others have said read the book instead.
If you read only ONE book this year, make it this one! Simply put, The Omnivore's Dilemma is a total eye-opener! Of course I knew that most of the food on the market was laced with pesticides, but had no idea to what extent we are being duped.
Michael Pollan presents this work as extremely well researched and written. I will absolutely read his other books.
And, I must say that I enjoyed the voice of the narrator, Scott Brick. He's one of the best.
Extremely well written, very interesting story line, excellent narration. Couldn't wait to hear more.
