The Fruit Hunters: A Story of Nature, Adventure, Commerce and Obsession

Adam Leith Gollner, Author, Stephen Hoye, Read by Tantor Media $34.99 (0p) ISBN 978-1-4001-0745-2
The world is chockfull of fruits and Gollner's goal is not only to taste as many as possible but to interact and explore those fully immersed in ""fruit culture."" From fruitarians (fruit-eaters only) to fruit smugglers, Gollner reveals a side of fruits that many will find astonishing. He also succinctly educates listeners on the wide diversity and appeal of fruits and why so many cultures have such deep emotional-even erotic-relationships with these earthbound wonders. Gollner's world travels provide many interesting details and explanations about the relationship between fruit and culture. Stephen Hoye captures Gollner's excitement and energy quite well. Overall, his voice is relaxing, though he has an odd speech pattern of lingering a moment too long at the end of sentences. A Scribner hardcover (Reviews, Feb. 18).
