    "Lucky Us"

    the book is wandering and largely emotionally driven rather than scientifically, fact based it's only brought down further by the ridiculous narration. it would seem the narrator finds each and every word of each and every sentence to be a profound revelation which all of humanity should bow down and thank her for(not to mention the uncanny similarity her voice shares with the captain of star trek's voyager series.) I couldn't agree more with another reviewer's opinion posted here that it all sounds as though the listener is assumed to be a 3rd grader.
    PASS.

    "boring..."

    This book uncovers nothing that anyone even remotely interested in the wholesomeness and safety of their food doesn't already know, and is written and narrated in a style that seems directed to the intellect of a third grader. I was thinking that as a biologist, Ms. Goodall would able to provide some balance between the health food store fear mongering and the glib assurances of the agribusiness PR flacks, but she chooses to talk down to her audience, and I believe even quotes some wacko publication like "Well-Being Journal" (I'd actually have to listen to the hour or so that I managed to tolerate to accurately cite what publication of dubious credibility it was) as a source. The narrator does the text justice. Perhaps this is why she hasn't been heard from since "The Birds".
