5.0 out of 5 stars A refreshingly entertaining book!, 26 Jun 2001
This review is from: Fly: An Experimental Life (Hardcover)
I loved this book. It's not often that an entymological tome makes me laugh aloud, but this one did regularly. And it's marvellously informative. I spent a year working in a fly lab, and found Brookes' description of this endeavour to be remarkably evocative! A great read for biologists and non-biologists alike, I thoroughly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars The incredible 'Life of Fly'., 28 Sep 2005
This review is from: Fly: An Experimental Life (Hardcover)
Having an interest in evolution as well as a fascination with insects I was led to this unusual book. I wasn't really surprised at how interesting and entertaining it was, as the fruit fly seems to get at least a passing mention in many mainstream popular biological science works. The book was a pleasure to read, and although a difficult book to recommend I think it deserves a wider audience. The book will undoubtedly attract a narrow band of very selective readers but I'm sure that anyone with an interest in science would find the book fascinating.
