  • The Drunken Botanist: The Plants That Create the World's Great Drinks

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 16 mins)
    • By Amy Stewart

    Every great drink starts with a plant. Sake began with a grain of rice. Scotch emerged from barley. Gin was born from a conifer shrub when medieval physicians boiled juniper berries with wine to treat stomach pain. The Drunken Botanist uncovers the surprising botanical history and fascinating science and chemistry of over 150 plants, flowers, trees, and fruits (and even a few fungi).

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

    The sweep of the information in this book was wonderful to me, but I might suggest a book or eBook format if you are not a fan of Coleen Marlo's style.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Drunken Botanist?

    The sweep of possibilities in the alcoholic extractions from around the world, a blend of long history and endless combinations and permutations.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator was clear enough, but her style was not for me to love.... just like.

    The Black Team, an elite special ops team commissioned - off the books - by a United States Senator, eliminates threats to the country in ways that no official government agency can. When newest member Lance West accompanies his partner on a secret mission to Tokyo to gather intel on powerful Hong Kong mafia boss Fen Tsung, the situation deteriorates. Tsung kills West's partner and frames him for the murder.

    Erica says: "Gripping action!"
    "Narration-driven format awesome, once I adapted."

    What made the experience of listening to The Debt Con$piracy the most enjoyable?

    The same thing that made it a mild challenge to get into the story, turned out to be the most awesome effect once I got used to it. The "audiblescript" idea they are presenting a movie script as an multi-cast audioplay. and I like it.One voice actor reads all the backgrounds, action, and scene descriptions... and a team of other voice actors handles each character in the story.-During the first chapter, I had a bit of trouble keeping the narrator's voice in a separate category, but then the whole thing snapped into place, and the script was a fun, *action-film* ride for the rest of the book.-In the end, it was a great escape, and fun mental ride, the whole way.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The combat scenes were great to listen to...


    Any additional comments?

    I need to get some of audiblescripts other works.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Taekwondo to be better than the print version?

    I don't think I should review my own work, but I did want to remind buyers that when you buy this audiobook, there is also a link to an included PDF on the Audible page with charts, figures, and illustrations to help you along.
