    Within the dark corners of America’s forests grow culinary treasures. Chefs pay top dollar to showcase these elusive and beguiling ingredients on their menus. Whether dressing up a filet mignon with smoky morels or shaving luxurious white truffles over pasta, the most elegant restaurants across the country now feature an abundance of wild mushrooms. Langdon Cook embeds himself in this shadowy subculture, reporting from both rural fringes and big-city eateries.

  • Syndrome E

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 18 mins)

    Story
    (87)

    The classic police procedural meets cutting-edge science in this huge international best seller. Already a runaway bestseller in France, Syndrome E tells the story of beleaguered detective Lucie Henebelle, whose old friend has developed a case of spontaneous blindness after watching an extremely rare—and violent—film from the 1950s. Embedded in the film are subliminal images so unspeakably heinous that Lucie realizes she must get to the bottom of it—especially when nearly everyone who comes into contact with the film starts turning up dead.

    Just Jen says: "Unique and entertaining, an absolute must."
    "good idea but poor execution"

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

    No, lost interest.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Franck Thilliez and Mark Polizzotti (translator) ? Why or why not?

    No maybe it lost interest in the translation.


    How could the performance have been better?

    maybe the translation was poor it just did not keep my interest.


    Could you see Syndrome E being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    There are times when a film is much better than the written word maybe this is one of these times. Perhaps there is someone other than I who can see this book as a film and they can choose the cast.
