    One thought on “Encounters with Animals”

    1. In questo libro, l eminente zoologo inglese Durrell, racconta in modo scherzoso e appassionato alcuni aneddoti riguardanti la sua vita di esploratore, trascorsa in giro per il mondo alla ricerca dei pi insoliti animali Ci che colpisce leggendo gli scritti di Durrell il suo stupore e la sua meraviglia di fronte alle bellezze della natura Uno stupore che spesso contraddistingue l et infantile di ciascuno di noi ma che purtroppo si perde man mano che ci si confronta con il mondo degli adulti Durrel [...]

    2. I think I had a smile on my face while listening to this audio book Gerald Durrell had an unusual job travelling the world to bring exotic animals including birds and insects back to the UK for placement in zoos Today this seems politically incorrect but back then it was acceptable and Durrell was diligent in taking care of his animals and making sure they did not suffer He was in his element when taking care of baby foster animals and frequently slept with them in his bed Amazingly his wife too [...]

    3. Gerald Durrell s writing never fails to enchant me He finds the best, most strange and most beautiful creatures and brings them to life on the page in vivid, noisy, hilarious, colour I may be an avid reader of sci fi and fantasy, but his writing will always be one of my exceptions.

    4. Dopo il primo libro di Durrell interamente dedicato alla sua infanzia a Corf , ecco una seconda sessione di lettura di questo interessante naturalista Incontri con animali un libro ben diverso da La mia famiglia ed altri animali se l avevamo racconti di vita vissuta e di quotidianit , qui ci sono episodi pi sporadici, raccontati prima in una trasmissione radiofonica e poi raccolti per questo volume.Devo dire che se la mia famiglia era stata una lettura piacevole dall inizio alla fine, incontri h [...]

    5. Faccio parte di quella categoria di persone che hanno amato e apprezzato molto La mia famiglia e altri animali , il piccolo capolavoro di comicit di Gerald Durrell ambientato sull isola greca di Corf e ovviamente, lasciandomi trascinare da quello spirito gioioso e ironico, mi sono spinta anche nella lettura di questo libro che per ovvie ragioni e ben chiare ragioni, totalmente diverso dal precedente.In questo libro, Gerald Durrell narra infatti le sue personali e singolari esperienze come zoolog [...]

    6. Another enjoyable Gerald Durrell book This was a selection of short stories about various encounters that Durrell has had over the years based on a few themes, such as hand raising creatures, catching animals from the wild etc I particularly enjoyed the tale of the marmoset that lived with Durrell in his house for 8 years.

    7. Discussing the origin and explanation of certain aspects of nature, Durrell describes the roles and significance of decisions made by animals in nature With this, Durrell touches upon an interesting topic, answering many questions relating animals and nature.

    8. You could say that this book is a collection of all the funny things that happened to Durrell during his travels and all the stories are great, the highlight being Sarah the Giant Anteater It s a strong collection.

    9. I enjoyed this book tremendously I listened to the audiobook and re listened to the portion about Sarah the giant anteater a couple of times, grinning ear to ear each time.If you enjoy animal stories, try this book It s quite delightful.

    10. Enough good things can t be said about Gerald Durrell and his amazing true animal stories Touching, clever, interesting, very witty and thoroughly compelling I have seven of his books already, and my collection is steadily growing.Highly recommended.

    11. A book based on Gerald Durrell s radio broadcasts, published in 1958, a couple of years after his masterpiece My Family and Other Animals A series of interesting facts and anecdotes, but nowhere near as glorious a read as MFAOA Presumably better heard than read.

    12. An incredibly vivid look into the worlds of various creatures Astoundingly descriptive, it encourages the reader to learn of the animal customs and flares up curiosity about the natural world.

    13. If you are watching the mini series The Durrell s of Corfu you might enjoy Gerald Durrell s Encounters with Animals as much as I have
