The record of an odyssey by a zoologist and a zoologically-innocent comic novelist. It began in 1985 with a search for a rare lemur in Madagascar and went on to include expeditions which witnessed fruitbats, man-eating lizards, gorillas, a blind dolphin and the most inept parrot, the kakapot.
This is a great book, I have read it so many times. Although it is not fiction and the subject is not a happy one Douglas Adams is able to add humour to a very real situation - that this is most likely the last chance people have to see certain animals before they are gone forever due to us. It is wonderfully written, it opened my eyes, made me think but also made me have a laugh.
