profoundly bad narration. The narrator keeps reading every single sentence as though it's a Whimsical joke. even when what he's reading is really dark or serious.

Did Relentless inspire you to do anything?

there are some interesting and inspiring parts parts to this book but its very repetitive and often cliche. the writing quality is not very high and it reads like a pamphlet that was expanded into a full size book largely by repeating itself and repeating itself and repeating itself.........

this is a great story Ben Bova has done a great job with it and the narrator Stefan Rudnicki does a fantastic job as always HOWEVER there are several places throughout the book where all the different "takes" from the author are included one after another. what i mean is a sentence is repeated three or four times each time with a slightly different inflection in the narrators voice. then the story just continues on as normal for a while till you get to the next one. I'm half way through the book and so far the most notable occurrence of this is in chapter 24 starting about 3:40.
Very annoying. this needs to be fixed and re-released

Eating Animals audiobook cover art

i was skeptical, usually when a book about social issues is as popular as this one it turns out to filled with naive pie in the sky thinking and tons and tons of verbal filagry. but this was very good, lots of facts, lots of questions. a bit to much personal musing by the author for my tastes. but all in all well worth the credit. i dont think i will ever forget the section about sh*t soup. no more chicken for me thanks.

if your new to the issue of climate change (which at this point i don't see how you could be.) then this is great place to start your education. there is little in the way of "advanced concepts" but lots of good information presented in plain English. I think that will make it accessible to a wide range of folks who are just beginning to ask meaningful questions about climate change and our response to it.

The Botany of Desire audiobook cover art

Generally lacking in content

the review title pretty much says it all. also pollan has a strong tendency to portray his opinions as though their accepted facts. this is seriously irritating as those opinions which he presents this way are almost always either out right wrong or have no hard data about them to form with certainty an opinion either way.
