Narrator Ann Marie Lee’s animated reading conveys the fascinating and sometimes frightening process that raw food goes through to become convenience products on supermarket shelves. Lee’s sultry voice makes for an easy listen, even though she mispronounces a couple of foreign foods and attempts a less than impressive New Zealand accent. Her lilt and vocal modulations are more successful with an English accent, which adds to the versatility of her performance. Lee’s articulation and narrative flow highlight the author’s investigation of the food companies, chemicals, and chemistry involved in the manufacture of our foods, particularly the central paradox of food processing that places nutrition and convenience at odds.
