Through other minds
Mary Austin's The Land of Little Rain for its close perception of nature especially from the view of the nonhuman.
I liked the chapter on elephants very much.
Yes, it is that engaging. And each chapter reports on different animals, so it holds your interest.
This is a very good introduction to recent developments in the study of animal cognition.
While I recognize the intellectual and literary skill of Proust, I'm sure I am in the minority of educated readers who find Swann's Way tedious, even with the frequent interesting insights into mental functioning, as in the famous "madeleine" passage. Perhaps I am too old to enjoy coming-of-age narratives, and perhaps I've read too many British novels to enjoy yet one more set of eccentric aunts and grandparents. In any case, reading/listening to the whole of Proust is more of a life commitment than I am willing to make.
No, but he does a good job with this novel.
Don't care to see this happen.
