really liked it

An immense book, very well-researched. Quammen's science writing is among the best I've read. A bit detailed in certain sections to the point of monotony, but counterbalanced by many very meaningful sections. The final chapter was my favorite, diagramming the history of mass extinctions as related to the severity of the current, human-caused one.
