Kritikerstimmen

'[an] elegant little history ... King's witty and erudite portrait, illustrated with a wealth of images that demonstrate his passionate knowledge of his subject, may leave us feeling that the lobster deserves to be treated with more dignity. But provided our dinner has been traditionally caught, rapidly delivered and responsibly prepared, this book should only enhance our enjoyment.' - New York Times 'In Lobster, Richard King, a self-proclaimed "lobsterologist" (a word he invented, I think - I love it), offers a more personal excursion into the subject ... Mr. King also introduces a great deal of cultural history, touching on a broad range of topics related to lobsters, including the lives of fishermen (or lobstermen, as we call them in New England), lobster-fishing techniques, and the role of lobsters in art ... skilfully written.' - Jasper White, Wall Street Journal 'King offers a fascintating view of the life of a culinary delicacy ... If you're a fan of the garlic-buttered king of crustaceans, then get hold of Lobster ... I can't say I was that interested in lobsters before reading this book. But I am now.' - The Scotsman 'The 41st title in one of our favourite series, the small, short but richly illustrated Animal books from Reaktion, is Lobster. Joining a roster that so far ranges alphabetically and in size of subject from Ant to Whale, Lobster considers the tasty crustacean's culinary, natural and social history. - Toronto Star 'a welcome appetizer for this year's stack of summer reading ... sit back and savor this book of lobsteriana with a glass of zinfandel and a shore dinner. Just be careful not to drip any butter on the pages - others in the family will want to read it, too.' - Natural History 'engaging and very well written' - The Age, Melbourne 'Lobster takes its readers on a thoroughly researched, engagingly written tour of the anatomy of both the creature and our imaginings of it. The lobster, King explains, has existed simultaneously as the poor man's bread and the rich man's butter for centuries - a symbol of both hard life and decadence, as illustrated by the book's rich offering of glossy 19th-century anatomical drawings, water-colored portraits, and photographs of seamen at work, trawling for "bugs."' - Sierra Magazine 'Lobster is the latest in a series of books dissecting the life histories of various animals ... There are no recipes, but you'll learn about other lobster species worldwide and how they are used for food, and see lots of fun lobster-related memorabilia, from a lobster telephone to photos of naked women (one with Salvador Dali) with lobsters covering their private parts.' - Portland Press Herald 'The lobsterman with 40 years of hauling under his belt, the marine biologists with a career of research behind them, and the lobster-loving diner who enjoys a well placed arcane anecdote at a dinner table with friends and family, will all likely find something they didn't know about lobster in Lobster ... packed with facts and in-depth coverage of various lobster topics' - Fisherman's Voice 'King ranges widely and deeply ... He is particularly good at conveying something of the dedication and enthusiasm of those people who have over the years devoted themselves to studying the lobster' - Inside.org.au
