"Most geeks cannot write; this one can... Equipped with an undoubted gift for expression, Dawkins the writer comes with a unique pedigree" (Richard Fortey Guardian)
"Lyrical... brilliant... Dawkins’ style [is] clear and elegant" (Financial Times)
"This eloquent, witty and instructive book reveals the true Richard Dawkins. It's a great read." (A.C. Grayling)
"Throughout and as usual, Dawkins's writing is graceful, sparkling with anecdotes and wit" (Eugenie Scott, Nature)
"Affirmative nostalgia suits [Dawkins], and so does the good humour that imbues his writing about home... The voice is familiar but the tone is new, and the result is some of his most pleasing prose... The clarity and passion with which he recalls his childhood is matched by the clarity, passion, concerns and imagery – fairness, bullying, kindness to animals – with which he expresses the values he has maintained since then... An Appetite for Wonder speaks eloquently about where his values and preoccupations came from... Warmly illuminating about the making of Dawkins the humanist." (Marek Kohn, Independent)

Very dry read. The science bits are interesting but not orgasmically so and, if you want those, his other books are sooooooooooooo much better. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Louise
It's so interesting to learn about the life of such a remarkable person. It certainly covers loads of bases and I like his style of writing a lot. Totally recommended.Published 9 months ago by Johann
