Interesting but gets boring quickly
on 19 November 2017
There are some animals in this book I had never even heard of and actually had to google them (I would definitely recommend googling the echidna and then the baby echidna also called a puggle – they are so cute but at the same time really unattractive! I love them so much!). Each page had some really interesting facts and I even learnt some new things about animals that I thought I already knew such as female badgers can give birth to a multi-fathered litter (now that is a Jeremy Kyle episode I would love to see!).
Although I could only get through a few pages at a time before I got bored I did really enjoy what I read but I could only read it in small doses. So in terms of rating it’s really hard, it definitely isn’t a book that you can sit and read in one sitting, you can probably get through about 10 pages a day (20 at a push) so as a ‘book’ it’s 1/5 but it is interesting to dip into if a little pointless for some animals (some are just random information that I didn’t really find interesting but still) so for interestingness it’s 3/5 so overall it rates at 2. For me it was just really slow and took a lot to get through as there were some animals I just didn’t care about reading but I had to in order to finish the book, it became a chore to read in the end.
