Publisher's Summary

Upton Sinclair's The Jungle is a vivid portrait of life and death in a turn-of-the-century American meat-packing factory. A grim indictment that led to government regulations of the food industry, The Jungle is Sinclair's extraordinary contribution to literature and social reform.

brilliant rendering of an old classic

I was prompted to revisit this old gem because of the recent peanut butter scare. At least, to-day, the perpetrators of that crisis will be dealt with. It wasn't always so, as this book clearly states. This book is a difficult assignment, but the narrator clearly worked long and hard to pronounce the Lithuanian words and proper names. This is a man who brings a book to life--many narrators can't, or won't. This book is not intended for the young, or the faint of heart, as the descriptions of brutality, and the descriptions of conditions under which food was once prepared, are nearly as graphic as Edward R. Murrow's rendering of Buchenwald.

"Sad but wonderful"

I know this is a fiction but sometimes while I was listening to this audio book I can't help but to think that this is the life of an immigrant back in the 1900's. Very compelling story.

One of the most memorable books ever

I have always been an avid reader, and with time it gets harder and harder to find books, which would get anywhere near your favourites. 'The Jungle' was a REAL find, and immediately made it into my 'top 25'. It is one of the most deeply touching, powerful and memorable books I've ever read, and could not recommend it more highly.
