A. Kendra Greene’s enthusiasm and curiosity are contagious, and her love for Iceland is apparent in her delightful narration of an unusual travel book, The Museum of Whales You Will Never See. Greene’s voice is rich and expressive, and she rolls through the Icelandic words with authenticity. There are 265 private museums in Iceland, a country with a population of 330,000, and Greene is a friendly and excited guide through them—including the phallological museum, the Museum of Icelandic Sorcery and Witchcraft, and the Museum of Ghosts, Elves, and the Northern Lights. Her personable and smart narration makes one wish to visit Iceland immediately, but listening to her audiobook is the next best thing.
