After Bitten I was still in a medical state of mind so I picked this up from the library to take to Hawaii. Perfect beach reading, right?
Gulp is written by Mary Roach who is most famous for her book on dead bodies, Stiff. For this book she focuses on the digestive tract.
(Those are the two weirdest sentences on this blog to date.)
Roach says she doesn’t mean to be disgusting but some of the parts are kind of disgusting in that the-human-body-is-awesome-but-also-gross kind of way. Prepare to be both amazed and amused while reading this book.
