  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenni | 11/7/2011

    " Very good: lyrical, funny, engaging. I'd misremembered it as less interesting than some of Durrell's other books but it's just as good a read as The Bafut Beagles, which I'd re-read just prior to picking this one up again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsay | 6/24/2011

    " This book was pretty dated but still a good read. I always love the way Durrell describes the environments and animals, and his obvious love for nature. "

    " On a whim I picked up my parents' old paperback and gave it a read. It's a page-turner. Great at describing flora/fauna of the west African jungle. But OH how the patronizing, patrician attitudes of the imperial British are evident on every page. "

    " This is a nice and interesting book about animals, Africa and a couple of animal collectors. Full of colorful nature and genuine adventures. It a was a great time reading this book. I am sure to continue reading Durrel sometime later. "

    " This was a very funny tale of Gerald Durrell collecting animals from the Cameroon in the 1950's, for Zoo's. "

    " I do not think, Durrell would have been able to bring animals from the Cameroons to England, in this day and age !
    But the book is hilarious and still brings a smile, after all these years whenever I read a chapter. "

    " Upon rereading this book by a renowned zoologist an conservatioist,
    after 54 years, this worked retains all the freshness of my first reading. Entertaining, informative, and nostalgic. "
