Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ian | 1/11/2014

    " Coniff is a good writer, very eloquent and it shows in the language - effective in conveying the mood, and humorous. However there were more misses than hits for me in this collection of essays about various animal groups from microbes to mammals. Also, I often found the insights into his day to day work experience, his notes from the field if you will, more interesting than the main articles themselves. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brett | 10/27/2013

    " Misleading description of this book makes the reader assume it will be about encountering dangers in the wild. This is not the case. It is more of an account of one man's small adventures and the wonders of the animal kingdom from spiders to wild dogs. Not a page turner but had an interesting highlight here and there. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sarah | 9/22/2013

    " i would have read more of this (skimmed it) but i had to return it to the library. i will say that i was expecting more of an "adventure" book, and it wasn't really that, at least what i got through. it was more of a memoir. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara Bennett | 8/30/2013

    " Love the individual chapters on different animals, especially--of course--the cheetah one. I never thought I could be so entranced by a description of a spider spinning a web, but Conniff has a way of making it fascinating. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Myke | 8/22/2013

    " My only complaint is that I was hoping he would go into some detail about the box jellyfish and its lethality, but that's ok. Great book to pick up, read, put down, and repeat as it's broken up in to perfectly sized portions each regarding a different animal or experience. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Foggygirl | 7/21/2013

    " I read this book over a year ago and couldn't put it down for two days. It was both absolutely hilarious and informative. The title says it all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christina | 6/24/2013

    " Essays from a travel writer for Smithsonian and National Geographic. Mostly set in Africa and South America. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristine | 6/13/2013

    " Mildly amusing, but I was hoping for less chapters that were about following some scientist around who is cataloging ants, classifying dung beetles, etc. and a bit more adventure and humor mixed in with the science. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janna | 5/23/2013

    " It took a little while for me to get in the grove of this book, but it was worth it. I liked reading about all the out of the way places and animals I probably wouldn't normally care about. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brett Price | 8/29/2011

    " This book was soooo amazing. Growing up all i did was watch animal planet. This book brought me back to my childhood with all the authors encounters and stories. Definitely a must read for those with an interest in science, animals, or frankly nothing else to do. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 7/25/2011

    " Swimming with Piranhas at Feeding Time is a wonderful collection of natural history essays, but some stories are definitely more entertaining than others - sometimes Conniff gets caught up in "just the facts" and at other times, his writing just shines and he has such a nice turn of phrase. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 4/4/2011

    " The title of this book is misleading. The author didn't really do that many dangerous things but he does travel for scientific reasons and shares a lot of interesting information that he found out. He is very humorous with some great turns of phrase that are laugh out loud funny. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kris | 1/19/2011

    " For some reason, I have been leaning towards memoirs and other first-person non-fiction. I quite enjoyed this collection of animal-related essays. The author is a nature writer (Nat. Geo., Outside, etc.) who relates his experiences in a humorous but informative way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beau Smith | 9/9/2010

    " Very entertaining and informative book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Skedatt | 1/12/2010

    " So lewd in some places that it was hard to appreciate the adventure or the science. Couldn't finish it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 7/20/2009

    " Extremely accessible and interesting animal essays that were not only fun to read but full o' facts. Good stuff, this. If you like travel essays or popular science nonfiction, this is for you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 5/11/2009

    " This book is a great study of man's quest to do dumb things even though we are supposed to be the most evolved species. This book made me laugh out loud and thank God my kids didn't do this dumb stuff. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynda | 10/1/2008

    " I have always enjoyed Richard Conniff's stories in Smithsonian magazine so I bought this book. It is a series of essays that he wrote telling tales from his writing adventures. I now have a new appreciation for the mites that live in my eye lashes. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Elisha | 12/23/2007

    " Bill Bryson is better... It was just a little hard to get through. Didn't finish. "
