The story didn't grab me, but the characters certainly did. I find Boyd's people very human, believable and distinctive. In this novel he has a particularly peculiar group as they're scientists in a research station, so there are plenty of opportunities for them to develop eccentricities and interpersonal tensions.
And perhaps this is the real curiosity of the story, especially when woven in with the subject of their research - the behaviour of the baboon population. It's people watching - through a new lens.
