Kirsty Darbyshire's Reviews > Brazzaville Beach
by William Boyd
Picked this up to read on holiday and wasn't quite sure if it was going to be my cup of tea. It seemed to feature a lot of African chimpanzee watching and this is what I wasn't at all sure about.
Couldn't have been more wrong. Strong female lead - a chimpanzee watcher, yes, but also good scientist in a facility who are not quite straight with their research data. And her relationship with a slightly mad mathematician making up more of the storyline than I thought at the outset.
Good stuff and definitely an author to read more of.
