Gabra Zackman brings smells alive in a way that could have listeners comparing cannon fire to the aroma of a fine wine. There's joy as she narrates the description of petrichor, dry earth after a rain. Zackman captures Stewart's persistence in uncovering the scent of a batch of truffles and shifts to a more clinical tone as she laments the passing of ditto sheets and film projectors and their distinct smells. Stewart includes the science in the nose's job, but her audiobook is more about what smell evokes. Listeners might notice that their pencils don't have the strong scent they once did when Stewart brings it up. At the end of each chapter Stewart provides prompts that encourage listeners to notice smells in their own lives. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2022]
