Omnivore’s Dilemma

Thoughts odbymp by Michael Pollan, Penguin Audio 2006, ~16 hours

Narrated by Scott Brick.

  • National Book Critics Circle 2006 Award Finalist, Nonfiction

“Remarkably clearheaded book….A fascinating journey up and down the food chain.” (Publishers Weekly)

I had a brief and uninteresting post written for an attempt at a review of this book and then I reread Trish’s review from a year ago. I suggest you read that one because I agree with everything she says.

I do know people with secret mushroom foraging spots who are exactly as described in that section of the book. IMG_3025 (photo of mushroom garden art taken at TJ Maxx)

 

I am glad I can cross this off the tbr. I enjoyed listening to Mr. Brick narrate; I can see why he wins many awards for his audiobook work.

You have reached the end of this review, such as it is. This concludes my post.

  1. I’ve read another of Michael Pollan’s book and loved that one too. Scott Brick narrated that book as well and I loved his narration. Looks like this is one I will enjoy as well.

  2. I don’t think I’ve listened to anything narrated by Scott Brick before – will have to check out some of his audiobooks. I love mushrooms but I’d be so paranoid about actually foraging for them …

  3. I have another book by him but it had an aggressive tone to it that I wasn’t in the mood for at the time so I put it aside and… forgot about it.

  4. I read In Defense of Food a few years ago and thought he had some really good things to say, but I think any more Pollan might start to feel like I was being preached at.

    I read The Botany of Desire and enjoyed it a lot, but I wonder if all these books maybe start to sound the same after a while. I do want to read Cooked, but I am not sure if the rest of his books would maybe sound similar to each other. I assume not as they were all published…
