Format: Hardcover
the proceeds of rescuing the spectacled bear are plowed into the charity in which mr fry is involved to help do exactly that, which should deserve another star admittedly, but the books just a liitle on the short side.
The writing is excellent as one would expect from stephen fry, and his frankness honesty and devilish humour shine through, easy to settle into but alas his trip is over all too quickly, the real joy comes from reading his honest accounts of the discomforts involved and he is very honest about his participation in the film project which was another aspect of this project.
it is very interesting to read his thoughts on peru and briefly chile, but what a treat it would have been to have that extended to the whole of south america and over a longer time.
Most amusingly we also are related the various woes encountered with laptops ipods transport and more importantly corruption.
a worthy and highly readable insight.

This book is the accompanying volume to the television programme shown last year. Although I didn't watch the programme myself people have commented on how good it was. I thought that perhaps the next best thing would be to read Stephen's book. I wasn't the least bit dissapointed. I received the book in the post this morning, and it has not been out of my hands since! Not only was I treated to information - not all good - about the bears, but Stephen Fry made me laugh as well.
I would definately recommend this book to anyone with an interest in bears, or nature in general. Or even just if you like Stephen - he always shines through in his writing, whatever the subject matter.
All in all, a fantastic, entertaining read - one I shall be enjoying again and again.
