Narrator Brant Pope's gravelly voice and upbeat delivery reinforce Thor Hanson's celebratory natural history of bees. There's more to bees than meets the eye, and their impact on human life may surprise listeners. Interestingly, the story of bees begins with a wasp, but perhaps what's most surprising is just how much information about and admiration for bees is included in this concise audiobook. Pope maintains his energy throughout, moving easily between the scientific record, including evolutionary detail, fossil records, and species diversity, and the larger role bees play in sustaining life on earth through pollination. And that vital role is why the risk of continuing colony collapse concerns more than just bees. An insightful call to action for the natural world.
