    In the 10 years since his classic Kitchen Confidential first alerted us to the idiosyncrasies and lurking perils of eating out, much has changed for the subculture of chefs and cooks, for the restaurant business and for Anthony Bourdain. Medium Raw explores those changes, tracking Bourdain's strange and unexpected voyage from journeyman cook to globe-traveling professional eater and drinker, and even to fatherhood. Bourdain takes no prisoners as he dissects what he's seen.

    Andy says: "entertaining but not as good as kitchen conf."
    "Fun listen"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book. Now I'm wishing that Audible also had A Cook's Tour available.

  • War and Peace

    • UNABRIDGED (60 hrs and 50 mins)

    Often called the greatest novel ever written, War and Peace is at once an epic of the Napoleonic wars, a philosophical study, and a celebration of the Russian spirit. Tolstoy's genius is clearly seen in the multitude of characters in this massive chronicle, all of them fully realized and equally memorable.

    What disappointed you about War and Peace?

    Couldn't stand how the narrator pronounced the Russian names.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Frederick Davidson’s performances?

    No. Besides the names, overall this narrator was hard to listen to for me.

  • The Hunger Games

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 14 mins)

    Story
    (24213)

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Teddy says: "The Book Deserves The Hype"
    "Love the narrator"
    Overall

    Some reviewers complained about the narration, but I really enjoyed it. I thought I recognized the voice, and then realized that it's one of my favorite actors from Law and Order!

    Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden is Chicago's only openly practicing wizard. He is also dead broke. His vast knowledge and magical skills are unfortunately matched by his talent for making powerful enemies and alienating friends. With little more than his integrity left, he accepts an offer of work from Lt. Karin Murphy of Chicago's Special Investigations Unit. He wants to redeem himself in Murphy's eyes and make enough money to quiet his rumbling stomach.

    pterion says: "I'm liking Harry more and more"
    "Okay"
    Overall

    I didn't enjoy this as much as the first book -- not planning to continue with the series after this one.
