  • Antarctica on a Plate

    Antarctica lends itself to tales of adventure and heartbreak. The landscape is polarized, beautiful and deadly in equal measure. But Alexa doesn't scale mountains or trek to the Pole. Instead, armed with an old cookbook, she attempts to create three-course meals with no electricity or running water and struggles to defrost meat in sub-zero temperatures. Life in a thin nylon tent in the company of scientists, explorers, and eccentrics soon begins to take on extraordinary dimensions.

    "Interesting, kind of."
    Overall

    I really liked hearing about life in Antarctica, but I grew to despise this woman. I'm not sure I've ever disliked someone in a story so much. I also did not like her writing style, I felt like she was trying too hard to sound like a good writer instead of someone telling a good story. I did like hearing about Antarctica, but I think I'd have enjoyed anyone else's stories from there more than hers... not a huge selection of recent stories from Antarctica on audible though.

  • Furnace of Creation, Cradle of Destruction: Earthquakes, Volcanoes, and Tsunamis

    Over the past few years, devastating tsunamis off the coast of the Indian Ocean have killed hundreds of thousands of people. Even more alarmingly, scientists predict that these tsunamis, as well as a series of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, will be striking with even greater frequency and may eventually threaten Hawaii, California, and Oregon.

    I think this would be a good one to read instead of listen to the audiobook. The reader is pretty boring and unenthusiastic. I got the impression at points that he didn't really know what he was saying.
    As far as the actual book, there is tons of good information, might be a little much for someone who is not a professional, and a bit light for someone who is. I thought it was worth listening to though. I'm a beginning geology student.
