This is one of my favorite books of all time. I own a few audio versions and this is by far the best. Very well done.
Bourdain is bourdain. He is a top notch entertainer. It's a very enjoyable listen. Well done
The first half of the book is very well written. Bryson's voice really grated on me though. He reads in a sort of sing-songy voice that is hard to listen to. Had I not already been sucked into the story from starting to read the book, there is no way that I wouldn't have turned it off in the first five minutes. Still, the story is entertaining and well written - at least the first half. The second half loses steam quickly and I found myself looking forward to the end.
