September 2009

This was Leslie's pick to lunch at Jason's Deli.  We read "My Family and Other Animals" by Gerald Durrell and gave it 3 stars.

Alison says: I think I'm in the minority, but I didn't love this memoir. The "family" parts were somewhat interesting to me - sometimes downright laugh-out-loud funny - but the "other animals" stuff just isn't my thing.

Sue says: As my friend Leslie said, "This book is one outrageous story after another". This book is very funny and I enjoyed reading it.
the family members-hilarious
the animal stories-hilarious
the other characters-hilarious
the natural history-fascinating
the descriptions of the Greek island Corfu-beautiful
