    "What should we have for dinner?" To one degree or another, this simple question assails any creature faced with a wide choice of things to eat. Anthropologists call it the omnivore's dilemma. Choosing from among the countless potential foods nature offers, humans have had to learn what is safe, and what isn't. Today, as America confronts what can only be described as a national eating disorder, the omnivore's dilemma has returned with an atavistic vengeance.

    Stephen Redding says: "Great presentation of a moral dilemma"
    "simply perfect"
    Overall

    Michael Pollen has asked and documented questions that I believe most Americans ask themselves every day "What should I eat."
    He takes us through more than one food chain, and how each one not only affects the land that is used, but how it affects us, the consumers.

    Its great to listen to writer who has documented this issue though his own personal experience. Pollan is not preaching nor is he telling his readers what they should eat; instead, Pollan allows the readers to make their own decisions about the food that's on their plate.
    Scott Brick was also the perfect narrator for this book; his voice has really brought the book to life. Anyone who is interested in the food that goes on our plate really should purchase and listen to this book.

    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    DCinMI says: "Review of First 5 Books"
    "Can't get past the reader"
    Overall

    After listening to this book for hours, I really can't bring myself to get past the reader. The story line overall seems very interesting, however, this is one of those books that I am going to have to actually read in order to enjoy.
