THE MUSEUM OF WHALES YOU WILL NEVER SEE And Other Excursions to Iceland's Most Unusual Museums

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by A. Kendra Greene

Contemporary Culture • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

A. Kendra Greene's love for Iceland, its hundreds of quirky museums and private collections, and the people behind these diverse institutions is obvious in her delightful narration of this unusual travel book. Greene's voice is rich and expressive, and she rolls through the Icelandic words with authenticity. (She thanks her language coach in the acknowledgments.) Her curiosity and enthusiasm are contagious, and the listener is swept along a magical landscape. Greene is impressed and amused by the world's only phallological museum; a sorcery and witchcraft museum that features necropants, pants made from skin; and collections dedicated to the herring that no longer come to Iceland, stones collected by a factory worker on her daily hikes, and other assortments of objects that don't seem to have a theme at all.
