Actor Matthew Boston's trained voice expertly serves this audiobook salute to all things hamburger. He captures the author's ebullient style, and his pace honors the obvious enthusiasm that Gonzalez, a blogger and burger museum curator, brings to America's favorite sandwich. Boston's reading sometimes has to rise above the author's blogger-like proclivity for long lists and quirky prose. No matter. The multiple claims to being the original nineteenth-century hamburger joint are explored; so too are the "burger wars" of the late twentieth century. Here are the origins of the biggest chains and those that came and went. This audiobook is good at telling the backstories of McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's, Hardee's, and In-N-Out Burger--plus the listener learns about the Cuban Fritas and the Mississippi slugburger.
