JAPANESE WOMEN DON'T GET OLD OR FAT

by | Read by Naomi Moriyama

Contemporary Culture • 5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2005

Granted, it's a catchy, if hyperbolic, title. The pop culture tone continues through this introduction to Japanese history and cooking, though its overmodulated recording and padded content may drive even the best-intentioned listener to binge on American junk food. While coauthor and reader Moriyama's accent is mild and her delivery upbeat, production problems render this an irritating listen. You'll hear lots of interesting and valuable information, but, unless you have a notepad handy throughout, it's almost useless--so this is a better book in print than on CD. Furthermore, this concept is in need of remastering and a good editor. D.J.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
