Catching up with a pre-holiday review:


Kingdom of rarities by Eric Dinerstein

 

Average

 

Dinerstein is fascinated by rarity and what purpose/meaning it has in nature. Some creatures are "naturally" rare, others we have made rare and this book explores a number of such creatures and their habitats. I found that there was much repetitiion in here and found my attention wandering often. However the central question was interesting and was worth persisting with for me, but you’d have to be really interested in the subject to persevere.

 

Overall – slightly too dry and overly repetitive.
