THE FRUIT HUNTERS A Story of Nature, Adventure, Commerce and Obsession

by | Read by Stephen Hoye

Contemporary Culture • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

A delightful mix of history, travel, adventure, and obsession, this unlikely story of fruit fanatics and the search for the world's most mysterious, rare, and lucrative fruit will leave listeners unexpectedly engrossed. Narrator Stephen Hoye, often bemused, sarcastic, or deadpan, does a superb job of recounting the author's extensive research into this eccentric subculture and convincingly demonstrates that truth can indeed be stranger than fiction. He deftly recreates the interviews with the quirky personalities that populate the story and is equally adept at bringing the scholarly research to life. Similar to a ripe, luscious peach, this juicy performance will leave listeners wanting another bite. M.H.N. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2008]
