really liked it

Read in November, 2008

sequel to 'My Family and Other Animals'- more anecdotes from Gerald Durrell's idyllic childhood in Corfu, with - no doubt - significant poetic license. Amusing family conversations, bizarre friends who come and go, and an astounding collection of wildlife which Gerry collects. Slightly more detail in the natural history descriptions than I really like, but overall a very enjoyable book.
