Don't waste your time. Amazon says the author is "one of America’s funniest and most astute cultural commentators." Believe that with this item, and I tell you about a bridge for sale in Brooklyn. There's nothing astute and I doubt you'll find anything funny--unless you are amused by overdone Alabama accents. If it hadn't been free, I'd be asking for my money book. As it is, I'm sad for the waste of time.

I was doubtful at the beginning but quite soon became entranced. Twain's Feast is funny, informative, and quite deeply thought-provoking. You may think you don't care how raccoon is cooked, but believe me, you will.

Little details--and big ideas--move quickly, and before I was 1/3 through the audio, I ordered the book on which this delectable journey is based.

Where does Fordlandia rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Fordlandia ranks in the top tier of audiobooks.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Fordlandia?

Ignoring local customs and climate, Ford officials insisted that clapboard houses had to be built in the jungle--with tin roofs, making them unbearable hot.

What about Jonathan Davis’s performance did you like?

He's just a very good reader, with a nice wry tone.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Wealth, ignorance, and exploitation
