    Story
    (96)

    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.

    Kathryn Bell says: "A little too long but good nevertheless"
    "Good book, but the ending is extremely week"

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The book is interesting, and its most endearing feature is the fun and entertaining anecdotes. But the entire theme of the second half is him wrestling with the fact that he didn't know how to end it. The ending is weak, even with him transparently discussing it and sharing with the reader his angst.All in all, I would recommend it as an easy read, but don't get your hopes up for a strong finish.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Michael Paterniti? Why or why not?

    I think so, depends on the subject.


    What about L.J. Ganser’s performance did you like?

    The performance was great, very easy and entertaining to listen to.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    no
