    "I picked up this one to read for my book club, and I am surprised by how much I enjoyed reading it. I thought this book would be heart wrenching and hard to get through because of the content, but it was honestly hard to put down. It was obvious that the author had done her research on the characters and setting, and you really felt like you were part of this novel. It truly is a beautifully written book. "

    "During the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum, (PETM), our world was 8C above our current global mean temperature. The result was the extinction of over 95% of the Earth's species. Comparatively, CO2 levels were much lower than today. Regardless of one's perception of Ms. Ackerman's insights, the animal kingdom and the world as a whole, will be much better off without homo sapiens. For the Earth, this will be a blessing."

    "This book is a collection of poems written by famous author Diane Ackerman. These poems balance the intricacies of a patient client relationship and dive deep into the emotional process of self understanding. Because this is a collection of poems rather than one cohesive novel I would not reccomend this for those who have not read other works by Diane Ackerman before"

    "I enjoyed reading this book. Reading about the wildlife in this book sort of reminded me of those animal documentaries I enjoy on television. The book engaged me because it followed the lives of these animals with such precision and detail that I felt I was their chronicling their lives as well. Every time I finished reading part of it at home; I decided to watch an animal documentary to keep the experience going."
