    eBook weplayit.co ç Citrus A History ePUB â Citrus A Epub / citrus free, history free, Citrus A book, Citrus A History EpubI read this for a botany class I'm taking and the book is surprisingly interesting It's of a story a conversation about citrus instead of just straight facts or growing information The author throws in some autobiographical details since he has travelled a lot and has first hand knowledge of some of this stuff but it's never so much that I was annoyed Overall a fun little read about citrus

    eBook weplayit.co ç Citrus A History ePUB â Citrus A Epub / citrus free, history free, Citrus A book, Citrus A History EpubExtremely disappointing First of his writing style was overly florid and annoying for my tastes so I was inclined to less than love the book simply because of that but I am a sucker for a well researched history book so I could have easily overlooked my stylistic preferences in favour of an illuminating read Alas I didn't get that either The book is not a coherent linear narrative at all Instead the book is divided into chapters that focus on one aspect of citrus and it's relation to the world as defined by the author Each chapter takes a topic such as citrus' introduction to the new world citrus in poetry etc and the author pontificates on that topic Again not in a particularly cohesive way either He like to randomly insert food and drink recipes in the middle of other narratives I would be interested in a cha

    eBook weplayit.co ç Citrus A History ePUB â Citrus A Epub / citrus free, history free, Citrus A book, Citrus A History EpubA fascinating look at the chemistry economics history and politics of citriculture Lazslo is a chemist and we learn about such things as geraniol and terpineol and limonen however he also supplies recipes for fried oranges key lime pie and the incomparable Brazilian drink the caipirinha The narrative thrust is not strong and there is some loss of the main story in the anecdotes but over all I enjoyed it Picking it up and reading chapters between others books is a good way to read it

    eBook weplayit.co ç Citrus A History ePUB â Citrus A Epub / citrus free, history free, Citrus A book, Citrus A History EpubThe narrative seems a little scattered I think because the memoir aspect keeps getting tangled up with the history part In the end it wasn't what I expected and while there were nuggets of interesting facts I didn't feel like digging through the text to find them
