My Family and Other Animals (Paperback) Price: Rs.243

Escaping the ills of the British climate, the Durrell family – acne-ridden Margo, gun-toting Leslie, bookworm Lawrence and budding naturalist Gerry, along with their long-suffering mother and Roger the dog – take off for the island of Corfu.

In a series of colourful villas, the Durrells give a sometimes reluctant home to a trail of local fauna, among them scorpions, geckos, toads, bats and butterflies. Recounted with immense humour and charm, this is a wonderful account of a rare and magical childhood.

Wish this was my childhood

An absolutely delightful book, descriptive, funny, worth reading again and again and again. Every time you read it, it will be as funny as the first time and one can find tiny nuances and jokes which you might have missed in earlier readings. You will go through a gamut of emotions, you will smile, chuckle, laugh till your cheeks and your stomach aches and also you will be touched by this story. You may start wishing that your childhood was just as funny and adventurous as the authors.

Book review- My family and other animals

A must for all animal lovers. The author has done a splendid job in narrating it from the perspective of a young boy. The description is very crisp and realistic. The metaphoric usage makes the reading experience a lot of fun. I myself ended up learning so many new things about the plant and animal life. The book stalls mid-way for the slight monotony but the Family, their actions, beliefs and way of life does not fail to amuse and surprise the readers at any point. The author has conceived some very interesting characters that add more flavor to the book. The ending is hilarious. I very li... ()

Naturalistic's book with great portion humorous entertainment

Naturalistic's book... surprisingly with great portion humorous entertainment
This is the first time I read this book. Wow... I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Definitely made me to look for his other works.... Even my 4 year old son asks me what Gerry did today.
This book is all about series of happening in Gerry's household, so i don't have to read it completely or in-sequence to my son. Just pick any chapter and enjoy it together.
A must read for young ones.

u call this childhood!

my idea of a perfect childhood.. filled with exploration and adventure, and superb descriptions on food.. :)

Filled with botanical and zoological information, this is a perfect start for such amateur enthusiasts, at the same time the small anecdotes by the author make the book very interesting and fun.

I recommend this book to anybody and everybody who loves a good read.. age:12 and above.

Gerrald Durrel at his very best!

Corfu comes alive, thanks to the magical pen wielded by Durrel! You are transported to the sun-kissed island, walking with him and sharing his experiences as if you were really there. And when he leaves, you have a heavy heart too. A must read for book lovers. (View complete review)
