In life Gerald Durrell would light up a room and his books elicit that same warm feelingHis affection for the natural world lives on in the minds of those who for decades have enjoyed his magical storiesThis is the second part of his Corfiot trilogy continuing from where My Family and Other Animals left offThe bohemian Durrells have eschewed middle class English suburbia for an unconventional life in idyllic Corfu As in the first book a procession of oddballs fruit cakes and misfits turn up at their villaBest supporting character award goes to leathery faced Spiro whose pidgin English sounds exactly like Stavros the

    eBook Gerald Durrell ò Birds Beasts and Relatives Kindle ç Birds Beasts ò birds pdf, beasts pdf, relatives ebok, Birds Beasts free, Birds Beasts and Relatives PDF/EPUBIt takes me awhile to finish Durrell's books They're not meant to be hurried through When I do finish I'm a little sad because I want him to just keep telling me and stories I was afraid this one might not measure up to the first one My Family and Other Animals But this second one was every bit as enchanting and entertaining as the first The two books give an account of the years the Durrell family spent living on the Greek island of Corfu in the 1930s Gerry was the youngest in his family by a far margin and was only about 10 years old when they moved from England to Greece He spent these years as a budding naturalist roaming the island collecting specimens and pets of every variety insects reptiles birds mammals and sea creatures To his family's dismay he brought most of these critters home to live in his indoor menagerie More often than not there were disastrous andor hilarious resultsMeanwhile Gerry's mother sister and brothers entertained a colorful variety of visitors bo

    eBook Gerald Durrell ò Birds Beasts and Relatives Kindle ç Birds Beasts ò birds pdf, beasts pdf, relatives ebok, Birds Beasts free, Birds Beasts and Relatives PDF/EPUBIt is that time of year when I feel a desperate need for a vacation but I am unable to get away The next best thing is to take a virtual holiday to Corfu a Greek island in the sun For a short spell each day I looked forward to being back in the company of Gerry Durrell the ardent ten year old aspiring naturalist his exuberant family and close friends As with my first introduction to Corfu and the Durrells in My Family and Other Animals this second book in The Corfu Trilogy is just as charming and exhilarating Once again I was impressed by Gerry’s immense interest in the natural world and amazed at the extent he went to collect specimens of a wide range of animals and learn about them His extraordinary power of observation was matched by an artful and vivid power of description that was often humorous and painted a jocular picture of the world he saw studied and

    eBook Gerald Durrell ò Birds Beasts and Relatives Kindle ç Birds Beasts ò birds pdf, beasts pdf, relatives ebok, Birds Beasts free, Birds Beasts and Relatives PDF/EPUBBirds Beasts and Relatives is the second of three books in Gerald Durrell's Corfu Trilogy All three books cover the five years that the Durrell family spent on Corfu an idyll sadly interrupted by World War II My review of the first book in the series My Family and Other Animals pretty much sums up my delight in all three books although I must say the first book was magical However I found myself again laughing out loud at so many of the episodes as Gerry's animals and insects take over their house and at conversations among the family and with their friends especiall
