    Description

    Janaki Lenin narrates how it is to share a life with renowned herpetologist and wildlife conservationist Romulus Whitaker in the book My Husband And Other Animals.

    Summary Of The Book

    Janaki Lenin, an animal enthusiast, shares some fun and startling experiences that she and her partner Romulus Whitaker go through. Tucked away in a small little world they built for themselves in south India, the couple have the most bizarre and entertaining encounters. From tree frogs that were determined to colonize their house to creepy crawlies, Lenin braves it all. It is interesting to read about situations that we normally do not find in everyday life. For instance, snakes that coil up in her shoes and the frogs that love her toilet tank.

    My Husband and other Animals is a compilation of amusing stories. Each chapter in the book is witty, short, entertaining and well written. Set in a jungle theme, you will find almost all types of birds, animals and insects mentioned in this book. Deers, monkeys, civets, jungle cats, porcupines and termites, each have their own special place in the book.

    The book doesn’t only talk about animals and wildlife. Lenin frequently mentions her husband’s special acquaintances like the Costa Rican gold diggers, ecologists, snake catchers, birdwatchers, and tribal people. Lenin’s best narrations are her stories about Rom’s encounters in the wild, and some of these narrations are from his life. Stories about the nettle attack, Rom’s color blindness, the pleasure of having instant noodles in a harsh wet jungle and their bizarre encounters with some crazy animal dealers are a delight for the reader.

    Through My Husband And Other Animals, we get a chance to marvel at nature’s secrets. Lenin showcases the wonders of nature and presents a refreshing new insight that celebrates the creatures of the wild.

    Humourous and Informative

    Its a book of anecdotes, which is told by through the eyes of Janaki,wife of Rom Whittaker who is the founder of Madras Snake Park. Witty, Engaging,informative and a lot of trivia. probably one of the better books I have read in recent times.

    It's a pageturner

    I was waiting for this book and it did not disappoint. I have been following her articles in the newspapers for quiet some time. Though I am not a big fan of reptiles, the short essays and the account of first hand experience is simply fantastic. Go for it.

    Nice book for a train journey

    It consists of short 1-2 page stories (mostly experiences of Janaki or Rom). Few of them are informative with interesting facts from the animal and reptilian world. Overall its a good read to spend some idle time. Although not as absorbing as that of James Herriot.
