    • Received this for free as part of my Audible membership If you re interested in reading this, I think it s important to know that this book is about a LOT than just food It really covers the life and times of Mark Twain, and although the project centers around food it also ends up touching on history, climate change, racism, Mark Twain s family life and evolution from Samuel Clemens to MT, and much.The style of the Audible version is a lot like an audio documentary, which I enjoyed, Received thi [...]


    • A peculiar listen, that is incredibly difficult to follow at times, especially while being a recording in a room full of people talking I liked the idea but it felt slapdash and incomplete, and left me a bit disappointed.


    • I wanted to like this Mark Twain Awesome History Love it Food I m all about that And then and then came 4 hours of lackluster and poorly edited disappointment I didn t have to spend any money one it but, ugh, can I get my time back


    • Typical millennial half assery This Audible Original purports to be a recreation of a feast Twain dreamed about upon returning to the US from international travel A Tramp Abroad I was expecting a literate discussion of the food of that period, much like Mark Kurlansky would do Cod, Salt, The Big Oyster, etc Instead I get a hipster chef creating the meal from a food truck and serving such Mark Twain experts such as Nick Offerman, Wanda Sykes, and Jeff Tweedy And of course some of the p Typical mi [...]


    • What a yarn What I thought to be a twofold tale of a man and his feast turned out to be so much True, both man and feast are well covered here in a culinary biography like no other see my review for Jim Harrison s A Really Big Lunch , but most of all it is a story of America after its Civil War until at the turn of the 20th century The people of this time and traditions are nearly lost most especially the food thanks to prohibition, WWII, rationing, freezing, microwaving, and other g What a yarn [...]


    • Essentially it looks at a few things in Mark Twain s life, but doesn t give the real picture It s entertaining, but can be a bit crass There s stuff you don t hear most places so that s cool though


    • Based on Mark Twain s extensive favorite foods list, this audio documentary provides a brief glimpse at American culinary history, discussing many regional cuisines and imparting socioeconomic insight as to why many dishes no longer exist It s also a snapshot of Twain s life, his writing, and an ever changing America This Audible Original is narrated by massive Twain fan Nick Offerman and food journalist Andrew Beahrs, who penned the print version Very enjoyable
