EGG A Dozen Ovatures

by | Read by Lizzie Stark

Contemporary Culture • 6.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

This audiobook is a carton of surprises. The text offers listeners science, mythology, and sleuthing on all things ova. Lizzie Stark, who describes herself as a "participation designer" and author, narrates with energy and focus in a style that suits her multifaceted approach to what is probably the world's most eaten food. A natural storyteller, she has a good pace and tone, and she knows when a straightforward delivery works best. Want to know the perfect pan for a French omelet, the uses of giant-sized ostrich eggs, or the biology of ovaries? It's all here. The audiobook is by turns a family history (Stark recounts stories of both her parents), a medical odyssey (she discusses operations to remove her breasts and ovaries), and a trove of stories from around the world. It's a rewarding listen. A.D.M. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2023]
