Gerald Durrell Writes with Wit and Warmth
Reviewed in the United States on January 14, 2018
Gerald Durrell writes with great wit and brings to life the Durrell family and the people of Corfu. Sometimes the science of the animals that the young Gerald collects and studies becomes a bit much, but I have to remind myself, that this is a naturalist book, not just an amusing memoir. The television version focused on the family and did not have nearly as much of the science, so that colored my attitude. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed all the books in this series.
