    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It had very interesting facts on French culture. I like to know why we do certian things the way we do them.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of French Lessons?

    The stories of all the little fairs that he attended.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I could find the time to. It wasn't hard to be drawn right back into the story when I had a chance to listen again.

    Scientists have long counseled against interpreting animal behavior in terms of human emotions, warning that such anthropomorphizing limits our ability to understand animals as they really are. Yet what are we to make of a female gorilla in a German zoo who spent days mourning the death of her baby? Or a wild female elephant who cared for a younger one after she was injured by a rambunctious teenage male?

    Douglas says: "What Some Of Us Have Always Known..."
    "Wasn't what I wanted but was still interesting."

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If the person's interest matched the books content I would recommend it. If you are looking for a book on Anthropomorphism I would pass.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    That there is some moral code in the animals that were studied for the book.


    Have you listened to any of Simon Vance’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The part about the elephant protecting the injured one.
