Narrator Paul Bellantoni's lively delivery breathes oxygen into an already quite lively and information-packed audiobook. Relatively new to listeners, Bellantoni easily assumes the author's persona of earnest investigator, lifting the veil of legend to pinpoint the exact biological truth. Despite the teaser title and the jocular tone that underlies much of the narrative, tomato history proves a timely vantage point for a range of serious topics--from the effects of hybridization and culinary fashion to the mechanics of gene splicing and the future of indoor farming. Best listened to outdoors, and if possible while doing yard work, this witty firsthand narrative transcends its topic, niche, and season while tackling that nagging question we all want answered: Why do winter tomatoes taste so awful?
