    If a piece of individually wrapped cheese retains its shape, color, and texture for years, what does it say about the food we eat and feed our children? Former New York Times reporter and mother Melanie Warner decided to explore that question when she observed the phenomenon of the indestructible cheese. She began an investigative journey that takes her to research labs, food science departments, and factories around the country. What she discovered provides a rare, eye-opening - and sometimes disturbing - account of what we're really eating.

    Jeff says: "Interesting."
    "Very informative. Scary, but informative."

    Story
    Would you listen to Pandora's Lunchbox again? Why?

    I will listen to it again and again to make notes. The book gives so much detail. We are being bombarded by toxic chemicals and most of them are coming from processed, packaged and canned so-called foods. Pandora's Lunch Box names names and describes the fake food ingredients, where they come from and what they do to our children, particularly.Melanie Warner has done her research, that is for sure and I appreciate all of her hard work. Even with all of the scientific detail, it is a fun book to listen to. Ann Marie Lee is a beautiful reader.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    Describing the contents of some of our most popular "foods".


    Have you listened to any of Ann Marie Lee’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She is always outstanding.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I thought the opening story about Kraft was interesting. People need to know more about this "food" company, especially if they have little ones who like macaroni and cheese.

    In the haunting tradition of Joe McGinniss's Fatal Vision and Mikal Gilmore's Shot in the Heart, True Story: Murder, Memoir, Mea Culpa weaves a spellbinding tale of murder, love, and deceit with a deeply personal inquiry into the slippery nature of truth.

    Jeff says: "Bad reader and a weak (true) story!"
    "A fascinating and complex character"

    What made the experience of listening to True Story the most enjoyable?

    Just knowing that it was true.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    How anyone could be such a con man and hold on to a seemingly normal wife and family.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Michael Finkel found out an accused murderer was using his identity.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the little girl died


    Any additional comments?

    I love true stories! They are always stranger than the truth. I am looking forward to the movie with Brad Pitt.
