nothing so quirky and independent as a British animal lover...,
This review is from: The Beauty in the Beast: Britain's Favourite Creatures and the People Who Love Them (Hardcover)
Entertaining, informative and thought-provoking in equal measure, this is a nice piece of work about the fauna of the British isles. Gives a good balance between things you never knew about particular animals, and a nuanced wake-up call about the predicament of many eco-systems which support and are supported by said beasts.
Having said that in many ways it's a book about people - there's lots of quirky humour about the characters who get obsessed with specific animals, often obscure ones (and the author isn't afraid to poke fun at his own hedgehog-fixation / midlife crisis survival strategies.) Good use of a tenner, in my view.

I was going to write a review myself but I cannot improve on this. Had a smile on my face all the time I was reading the book.
