I read this book very quickly, just in a couple of days--didn't even get it added to my "currently reading" list!! Just as the last book I read (Cost) brought me to tears on numerous occassions, this book had me laughing out loud. It is not the Evanovich type of humor, but just a sweet innocent story. The story centers around a group of men, mostly of Indian descent, living in Nairobi, who enter a contest to determine who will get to invite a much admired woman to a dance. Strict rules are developed by a lawyer in the group, the winner will be he who sights the most birds within a weeks time. Our hero faces many challenges during this week, as does his opponent, a play-boy type who doesn't cherish the afore-mentioned woman as does our hero. Enjoy--
