Listening to a lot of audiobooks gives me an appreciation for the truly great ones, and that would include The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert.
"Elizabeth is best known, however for her 2006 memoir EAT PRAY LOVE, which chronicled her journey alone around the world, looking for solace after a difficult divorce. The book was an international bestseller, translated into over thirty languages, with over 10 million copies sold worldwide. In 2010, EAT PRAY LOVE was made into a film starring Julia Roberts. The book became so popular that Time Magazine named Elizabeth as one of the 100 most influential people in the world." See her website for more information.
But this recording of The Signature of All Things read by Juliet Stevenson makes the 22-hour novel go by in a delirious rush, bringing to life the story of Alma Whittaker and the first botanists whose work led up to
Charles Darwin's explosive argument for evolution.
