The Omnivore's Dilemma: The Secrets Behind What You Eat, Young Readers Edition

by | Read by MacLeod Andrews

Published by Listening Library

“What’s for dinner?” seemed like a simple question—until journalist and supermarket detective Michael Pollan delved behind the scenes. From fast food and big organic, to small farms and old-fashioned hunting and gathering, this young readers’ adaptation of Pollan’s famous food-chain exploration encourages kids to consider the personal and global health implications of their food choices.

In a smart, compelling format with updated facts, plenty of photos, graphs, and visuals, as well as a new afterword, The Omnivore’s Dilemma serves up a bold message to the generation that needs it most: It’s time to take charge of our national eating habits—and it starts with you.

The Omnivore's Dilemma: The Secrets Behind What You Eat, Young Readers Edition

MacLeod Andrews offers such an enthusiastically engaging narration that it almost doesn't matter that the subject of this audiobook is fascinating and compelling in its own right. It explores where exactly our food comes from and what its ecological, economic, political, and social implications are. In this Young Readers Edition, the editors have toned down some of the more technical discussions and rephrased some sections ("voting with your fork," for example). But overall, the content and impact are left in force. Andrews varies his tone and pacing nicely. When the author seeks to be ironic, he adds the appropriate inflection. When the author is surprised, so are the narrator--and the listener. Adults should enjoy this production as well as younger listeners. R.C.G.
