NEVER HOME ALONE From Microbes to Millipedes, Camel Crickets, and Honeybees, the Natural History of Where We Live

by | Read by Sean Patrick Hopkins

Contemporary Culture • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Listeners may be surprised to hear that we're never alone. That's because diverse species ranging from invisible microbes to camel crickets are living with us--or on us. Narrator Sean Patrick Hopkins unveils their world. Since this account is often scientific, it's good that he makes the details of mating, eating, and thriving alongside us sound like a riveting "Nova" episode. Not only does Hopkins illuminate the life coexisting in our homes, he also shares the consequences of attempting to sterilize our intimate domestic worlds. Hopkins presents this combination of natural history and scientific mystery as a puzzling brain teaser, breathing life into its more scientific and complex sections with a clear, companionable voice and pacing that lets listeners absorb these detailed stories as they unfold.
