Charming and original,
This review is from: A Guide to the Birds of East Africa (Paperback)
I bought this because it had a pretty cover on it. I was surprised and delighted by the contents. It's one of the most charming stories I have read in a long while, and the humour is gentle and witty at the same time. I believe a book is a good book if I miss my bus stop because I'm so deeply buried in it. With this one I did so repeatedly. It is a thoroughly enjoyable read, and an ideal pick-up if you are feeling a bit low. On my next trip to Africa I will look at birds with a completely new eye!
