    In the picturesque village of Guzmán, Spain, in a cave dug into a hillside on the edge of town, an ancient door leads to a cramped limestone chamber known as “the telling room”. Containing nothing but a wooden table and two benches, this is where villagers have gathered for centuries to share their stories and secrets - usually accompanied by copious amounts of wine. It was here, in the summer of 2000, that Michael Paterniti found himself listening to a larger-than-life Spanish cheesemaker named Ambrosio Molinos de las Heras as he spun an odd and compelling tale about a piece of cheese.

    Would you try another book from Michael Paterniti and/or L.J. Ganser?

    No, found the style of writing very tiresome.


    Has The Telling Room turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not at all.


    Would you be willing to try another one of L.J. Ganser’s performances?

    possible, if the story is better written


    Any additional comments?

    One of the most boring books I have ever purchased at aubible.
