Kurlansky's engaging tale of how the human taste for cod has driven economic, cultural, political, and military history became a surprise bestseller when it was published in 1997. It's a fascinating mix of quirky anecdotes, traditional history, and interviews with the people who pull up fish for us to eat. Richard M. Davidson brings verve and energy to the narration, sometimes too much verve--after all, not every codfish fact deserves a verbal exclamation point. Yet, on the whole, his enthusiasm and clear, warm voice engage even the most fish-phobic listener in this well told tale of the cod. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 02]
