Nota del redattore

Rises to the occasion…

A delicious satire that rises to the occasion, engulfing you in the sights and smells of the Bay Area bread scene. Software engineer Lois Clary’s whole life radically changes when she’s gifted a sourdough starter and learns how to bake. Another endearingly quirky story from the author of “Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore.”

Descrizione

In his much-anticipated new audiobook, Robin Sloan does for the world of food what he did for the world of books in Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore

Lois Clary is a software engineer at General Dexterity, a San Francisco robotics company with world-changing ambitions. She codes all day and collapses at night, her human contact limited to the two brothers who run the neighborhood hole-in-the-wall from which she orders dinner every evening. Then, disaster! Visa issues. The brothers close up shop, and fast. But they have one last delivery for Lois: their culture, the sourdough starter used to bake their bread. She must keep it alive, they tell her—feed it daily, play it music, and learn to bake with it.

Lois is no baker, but she could use a roommate, even if it is a needy colony of microorganisms. Soon, not only is she eating her own homemade bread, she's providing loaves daily to the General Dexterity cafeteria. The company chef urges her to take her product to the farmer's market, and a whole new world opens up.

When Lois comes before the jury that decides who sells what at Bay Area markets, she encounters a close-knit club with no appetite for new members. But then, an alternative emerges: a secret market that aims to fuse food and technology. But who are these people, exactly?

Leavened by the same infectious intelligence that made Robin Sloan's Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore such a sensation, while taking on even more satisfying challenges, Sourdough marks the triumphant return of a unique and beloved young writer.

    Enjoyable narrator and storyline, makes me want to bake!
  • (4/5)
    Entertainingly written and read. I appreciate, as a microbiologist, that the author did their research. Amusing and warmly told.
  • (5/5)
    Uplifting and thought-provoking. It reads like a modern day fable.
  • (5/5)
    What a fun book!!! A story of robotics, sourdough, food, science, and culture. Not that kind of culture, the other culture. The original culture.
    Oh, and armies! Battles between armies. And music! The music is key!
    Just a tease, yes. But read it, and you'll understand.

    Slow moving but a cool concept but it's probably just me. I didn't find the characters as easy to relate to. And it was a little difficult to really feel the main themes. I had to do a little research to get myself more into it before I could finish. Overall the writing is great.
  • (3/5)
    Entertaining--and surely makes even the clumsiest want to start their baking career with sourdough.

    What a great story! An interesting and quirky plot half a hair of a lean toward fantasy. Witty sometimes downright humorous writing, very tongue in cheek at times. I found myself laughing out loud several times. The reading itself (audiobook) was spot on, the perfect voice for the plucky protagonist.
