You might just catch a whiff of resin and wood smoke in the air as you listen to Lars Mytting’s treatise on wood—chopping it, stacking it, and burning it. Narrator Matthew Lloyd Davies’s pleasing British accent and accurate-sounding Norwegian pronunciations are a great match for this conversational translation of Mytting’s work. The history of wood burning in cold Scandinavian countries, and the ways those traditions remain a part of their modern cultures, makes for fascinating listening (especially for Scandi-philes). Some of the nitty-gritty details about types of wood and brands of axes or chainsaws may not be best absorbed via audio, but Davies makes it all eminently listenable.
