Focused on the influence on elements, Pollan takes the reader through a journey of fire, water, air and earth. He shows how in our modern civilizations we have become rather disconnected from the food we eat. The influences the 4 elements have on our daily lives is very apparent when you take to time to actually observe what is happening to our food and how it is made.

I had much higher hopes for this book. Even though I enjoyed some of it a lot, most of it was "eh". About the time you thought the story was picking up, it suddenly slowed down again. The ending is abrupt but I know that is a segway into the next book. My issue with the ending is the fact that it feels rushed when the rest of the book was so slow. I probably will not pick up the next book. #audiobook #scribd #ya #yafantasy
I always enjoy hearing more from Jane Goodall. This is a short memoir from her earlier years and it was nice because you received more details her beginnings in Africa than you do in other books by here. I really enjoyed the story about the lions at their campsite and the call to action at the end about the need for conservation and environmental change. Quick read and worth the listen.

I have always been a fan of memoirs and this is a very interesting take on the genre. I really enjoyed hearing her stories and the impacts animals had on her life in every way possible. Anyone who loves animals will enjoy this. I got the overall message from the book but I don‘t see myself remembering much of the actually details.

I liked it but the ending was a little flat for me. Check out my explanation in my review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2682452718
