    Since prehistory, humans have braved the business ends of knives, scrapers, and mashers, all in the name of creating something delicious - or at least edible. In Consider the Fork, award-winning food writer and historian Bee Wilson traces the ancient lineage of our modern culinary tools, revealing the startling history of objects we often take for granted. Charting the evolution of technologies from the knife and fork to the gas range and the sous-vide cooker, Wilson offers unprecedented insights.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes. It explains a lot of cooking history, the reasons behind the do's & don't


    What does Alison Larkin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    the humour


    Any additional comments?

    I never thought about the history of cooking. I took a lot of the modern stuff for granted, as i expect many people do.

    Janis Ian was catapulted into the spotlight in 1966 at the age of 15, when her soul-wrenching song "Society's Child" became a hit. But this was only the beginning of a long and illustrious career. In Society's Child, Janis Ian provides a relentlessly honest account of the successes and failures - and the hopes and dreams - of an extraordinary life.

    You never really understand the story behind the stage face. What a story. Fame certainly does have a price.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Ender's Game Alive: The Full Cast Audioplay to be better than the print version?

    true to print but in a different format


    Any additional comments?

    Any audio book alters the images of print because it affects different senses and emotions. An audio book with different voices and sound effects was almost like a movie without the visual effects. Unlike the Tolkien adaptations this stayed true to the original text.

    Story

    Andrew Wiggin is told that he can no longer live on Earth, and he realizes that this is the truth. He has become far more than just a boy who won a game: he is the Savior of Earth, a hero, a military genius whose allegiance is sought by every nation of the newly shattered Earth Hegemony. He is offered the choice of living in isolation on Eros, at one of the Hegemony's training facilities, but instead the 12-year-old chooses to leave his home world and begin the long relativistic journey out to the colonies.

    Joshua says: "A Change of Perspective"
    "Ender in Exile (Unabridged)"
    Overall

    Of course the book is predictable. Any book inserted into an extablished series where the beginning and end is known would be predictable. If that logic held true they would never put 'new' rides in amusement parks because hardly anyone would use them. This was predictable, but as pleasantly enjoyable and convoluted a ride as the others in the Orson Scott Card theme park.
