WHERE WE MEET THE WORLD The Story of the Senses

by | Read by David Morley Hale

Contemporary Culture • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Both the narrator and author of this audiobook come from the north of England, so listeners need to be ready for a distinctive accent. But no one should let the idiosyncratic delivery deter them from this rich and meaningful audiobook packed with scientific observations and references to the five senses--and beyond. Cultures matter: Listeners hear that colors have different meanings, sounds are not heard exactly alike, and the intrepid author tries the Icelandic specialty called buried shark and regrets it. He finds root beer repulsive and gamely tests his sight and touch, as well. He also uses the uncanny ability of animals to intuit an oncoming storm to illustrate how lives can be saved by heeding other species.
