The biggest problem I have with this book is that Matt Stone is a food writer who just does some internet research so he can write a book. The information was not well sourced or documented. He repeatedly mentioned a study or a population but never cited where this information came from. There were also so many contradictions.
The audio could have been much better, it echoed at times and the conversational style of the writing did NOT work as an audiobook.
Confusion. As in, what the hell is this man talking about. One minute it's restrictive diets are bad and the next he is telling you not to eat nuts.
Please look anywhere but this book for nutritional information or information about a vegan diet. Any old internet website has got to be better than this book.
Maybe, one of the great things about this book is you have no idea what is going to happen. You can only get that kind of suspense on the first listen.
Maggi-Meg Reed was so great at all of the characters, she is truly an astounding narrator. My favorite might be when she does the voice of an old school Boston detective, she just nails his character.
Reed doesn't hold back when the main character is emotional, she brings that emotion into her reading especially near the end. She chokes up when the character chokes up.
I will be listening to other audiobooks by Reed. I couldn't stop listening to this book.
