Kolbert's 2006 volume on climate change is gaining the iconic status associated with Rachel Carson's SILENT SPRING and Bill McKibben's THE END OF NATURE. A decade old, FIELD NOTES still contains some of the best explanations of the feedback mechanisms associated with global warming. It also serves as a lens through which to see how much (and how little) has changed. Narrator Hope Davis has a strong, exceptionally clear voice. She understands Kolbert's mission-- fact-based journalism about complex natural systems--and supports it in an earnest tone without overemphasis. Her pacing is good, and her pronunciation--even of some challenging butterfly species' names--seems flawless. FIELD NOTES is as terrifying as it was in 2006.
