I agree whole heartedly with the points raised in the book...the first time it was said. However the author is at such pains to drive home his point that you are told over and over again how wasteful and polluting factory farming is ad nauseum, without any variation. It's like the audible version of modern documentaries that need to repeat the salient points after every advert. If I was the average thick consumer I probably wouldn't be reading this book. I think you could remove 50% of this book and not miss any of the presented facts.

not the best narrator

The book is OK, the author is evidently well informed. The narration lets it down though, and hr does sound very similar to his brother Peter. This is unfortunate as Peter Hitchens is an insufferable twat.

A classic sci-fi.

A favourite of mine well presented, although some of the character voicing was a bit hit and miss. The story has a complex structure with side stories to the main plot which is quite immersive, so the 25+ hours of listening time went quick.
