Fillets of Plaice | [Gerald Durrell]

Fillets of Plaice

In Corfu, Mother is given a calamitous birthday party, which starts with the hi-jacking of the icebox and ends with the entire gathering marooned on a remote and deserted beach. At a dinner party in Cameroon, uninvited guests include a green mamba, numerous geckos, and eight tree frogs. And in Bournemouth, we meet the delightful, ravishing Ursula, the Mrs Malaprop of the South Coast who bombards her gracious surroundings with outsize social gaffes.

    Story
    "Read "My Family and Other Animals" instead"

    This is entertaining--how could it not be, with Gerald Durrell, but I disliked the narration, and so a relatively weak story got no aural support. It's really hard to find a good narrator, other than the author. I'm always looking. So far, Lisette Lecat is the only one who gets my wholehearted vote. Anyway, if it's Durrell you want, in my opinion, My Family and Other Animals is the ticket, and then you go on to the others because you can't help it; you just can't resist this crazy family. I have to say, the most impressive thing is that Gerald Durrell was 16 (or younger, was it 14?) when he got his first job, yet he completely understood how to manipulate and outmaneuver a difficult boss. Wow.
