    The enchanted island of Corfu was home to Gerald Durrell and his family for five years before the Second World War. For the passionate young zoologist, Corfu was a natural paradise, teeming with strange birds and beasts that he could collect watch and care for. But life was not without its problems - Gerald’s family often objected to his animal-collecting activities, especially when the beasts wound up in the family’s villa or even worse - the fridge.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Garden of the Gods the most enjoyable?

    The witty and brightly-natured 'British' characters contributed to the light-hearted and entertaining stories of their new life as a family in Corfu. Each chapter depicts a fascinating interaction between the family, visitors from far reaches and the local inhabitants.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Garden of the Gods?

    The family party complete with vaudevillian acts for their own entertainment!


    What about Christopher Timothy’s performance did you like?

    He displays a wealth of character portrayals which seem so accurate. His reading shows a great sense of timing which is necessary maximise the author's humour.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Oh yes it made me laugh at the situational humour and the 'one-liners' that abound.


    Any additional comments?

    The fun of this book was heightened by clever descriptive language which suits our characters so well.
