Listening to this posthumous collection of commentary by chef Anthony Bourdain on his favorite places is like joining him for one final adventure. From Argentina to Vietnam, each brief chapter starts with a quick but detailed overview of airports, transportation, and hotels, narrated by Bourdain's assistant, Laurie Woolever. This is followed by Bourdain's thoughts about the area's people, locale, and food, narrated by Shep Gordon. Gordon's casual, friendly tone, reminiscent of Bourdain's own personal style, makes it easy for listeners to imagine traveling the world with him. Interspersed throughout are essays by some of those who knew him, each narrated by its author. The affection expressed for the late travel show host and writer is one of the most memorable features of this listening experience. C.J.S. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2021]
