it was amazing

After reading the horrific Ape House by Sara Gruen, I knew I wanted to read non-fiction material about the fascinating Bonobo species in the Congo. I was captivated. Woods offers a wonderfully emotional memoir dedicated to her love of these animals while weaving in the tumultuous history of Africa. I dare you not to fall in love too when you read how human the Bonobos are. Interesting and enlightening, I will now be turning to the internet to learn more.

How interesting and enlightening? I was home sick today and read through the entire book in one sitting.
