Download ó The Aye Aye and I A Rescue Mission in Madagascar 109 Nge creature turns into a madcap journey in which you will meet not only the enigmatic Aye aye but the catlike Fosa the Flat tailed tortoise the Gentle lemurs of Lac Alaotra and the Malagasy chameleons among others Truly nothing escapes Durrell's sharp eye whether he is describing the great zoma market the village dances the treac This book is like if James Herriot was in Madagascar rather than the British countryside It is very interesting from a conservation point of view lots of adventures with animals It is also a real curiosity because despite being written in the 90 s it feels like it could have been written 100 years ago It is rollicking in that way that travel writing rarely is any and Durrell clearly cares deeply about his mission You can let this book sweep you away with its charms it is uite charming and funny but at some point it will inevitably sour Durrell writes about the Malagasy people without even a hint of concern about the fact that he is from a white country that colonized and enslaved people just like the Malagasy for hundreds of years and that has portrayed the people of the African continent as godless savages for even longer It would have taken just a little bit of thought to avoid these pitfalls Durrell is mostly respectful and delighted by the people he encounters but when he goes wrong it can go awfully wrong Much of his frustration as a conservationist is directed towards the governments that know better but don t care rather than the people themselves he is close but he is not uite there The audio reader it has just been recorded as an audiobook for the first time is perfectly suited to the material
