あらすじ・解説

Flawless is the first audiobook of its kind dedicated to exploring the main causes of faults in wine. From cork taint, to volatile acidity, to off-putting aromas and flavors, all wine connoisseurs have encountered unappealing qualities in a disappointing bottle. But are all faults truly bad? Are some even desirable?   

Jamie Goode brings his authoritative voice to the table once again to demystify the science behind what causes a good bottle to go bad. By exposing the root causes of faults in wine, Flawless challenges us to rethink our assumptions about how wine should taste and how we can understand beauty in a glass.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

What director let the narrator talk like this?

I was so excited about this book. I read the first few pages, but have always been much more of an auditory learner. Unfortunately the narration of this book is so horrendous, I can’t get through it. I seriously wish I could get my money back. Strongly advise against getting this as an audio book. I’ll be reading it as soon as I get some sit down time.

Austere

Between the very positive reviews on Amazon for the printed version of the book and the sole negative review on Audible, I decided to ignore both and purchased this audiobook anyway, as I was interested in the topic. That was, unfortunately, a mistake. The book was boring to listen to. I am a few chapters in (listened mainly in the gym) and was so put off by it that I couldn't continue nor focus on what the content was about. The text is dry and austere and the narration did not help to make it any interesting. Neither conveyed any passion in the topic. At points I thought I was listening to lists of unrelated items. Perhaps this was meant to be a scholarly book that is well researched (there were some references to academic papers), but similar to academic papers, turned out to be uninteresting to the lay person. Even the tables in the provided PDF are formatted a la journal papers. Either way, I think this book does not work as an audiobook, at least. Tables / charts ad such simply does not work with audiobooks - and I'd guess that there are plenty of these in the book. I do not recommend anyone to download this.

Not Flawless

After reading the Wine Bible this summer (which was great, but is not on Audible) I decided to learn more about wine. This is one of the few wine books on Audible and sounded interesting. This book has some information, but not a lot and not well presented. Reading the Wine Faults wikipedia page was much more pleasant, focused, and interesting. I have some background in chemistry, but the way this book jumps between the banal and technical chemical jargon was jarring. If I had not read the Wine Bible, I could not have understood many of the comments that depended on very specific knowledge about wine terms. I really don't understand why this book was written. It notes a number of faults and lists things that may prevent them, but only in a very general way. Like, heat is bad, lots of heat is very bad. Consider heat when dealing with wine. There are many such sentences that seems to be almost self mocking. There is a PDF with a few tables that is mildly interesting. The narration, although I guess fairly was not bad, failed to help this dismal book. I recommend skipping this book and (if interested in wine faults) read the wikipedia page on that subject.

Fascinating book! But Ochlan must be replaced.

As always a perfectly written text from Goode. The publishers have really screwed him over with this voiceover drone though, wtf were they thinking? His voice is hideously electronic monotonous and he even mispronounces wine terminology. Please re-record with the authors voice and not this hapless Android!

Heavy going, save your money

I was very much looking forward to this book, being an avid follower of the authors work. The writing is very full on, packed with a lot of scientific jargon making it hard work, even to listen to! Especially when it's being read by Microsoft Sam! I had to skip the Brett section, listening to the monotonous repition the word was like pulling teeth! I think for the average person interested in wine this book misses the mark, even dare I say for the wine professional, unless said professional has a degree in organic chemistry or has a deep understanding of winemaking, in which case they should already know most of that stuff. I think maybe I would have enjoyed the book more in the form of a real book as to dip in and out of. But sadly the Audiobook for me failed to arouse any interest in subject matter that I should have found fascinating, if anything it did the opposite.
