Birdseye: The Adventures of a Curious Man by Mark Kurlansky
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Birdseye's life was interesting, but perhaps not eventful enough to support a full biography. The book seemed a bit thin on substance. The side-trips into Labrador history and the histories of the various businesses Birdseye was connected to made for good reading, but the connection to the subject of the book didn't seem all that strong.
I listened to the audiobook version of this and the narrator, Jon Van Ness, did a good job with it. However, he had a midwestern-sounding accent and that seemed out of place to me as he was narrating the life of a New Englander.
This book counts toward the Foodies Read Challenge and the Canadian Book Challenge.
