MacLeod Andrews offers such an enthusiastically engaging narration that it almost doesn't matter that the subject of this audiobook is fascinating and compelling in its own right. It explores where exactly our food comes from and what its ecological, economic, political, and social implications are. In this Young Readers Edition, the editors have toned down some of the more technical discussions and rephrased some sections ("voting with your fork," for example). But overall, the content and impact are left in force. Andrews varies his tone and pacing nicely. When the author seeks to be ironic, he adds the appropriate inflection. When the author is surprised, so are the narrator--and the listener. Adults should enjoy this production as well as younger listeners. R.C.G.
