SPINELESS The Science of Jellyfish and the Art of Growing a Backbone

by | Read by Juli Berwald

Contemporary Culture • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Juli Berwald's fascination with brainless blobs of seaborne gelatin and stinging tentacles makes 10 hours of stories about seeking and studying--and even eating--jellyfish a pleasure for armchair (or beach chair) naturalists. Berwald is not a professional audiobook narrator. Her delivery is a bit too frenetic at times, but she is telling her own story, and her emotions clearly enter into her vocal style, making this audiobook not only a scientific study but also the story of a personal life journey. Many characters from around the world, from fishermen to scientists, weave through the story, and to the narrator's credit, she does not attempt to duplicate their accents. Those who live in coastal communities will especially enjoy this audiobook. C.M.A. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2018]
