Anmeldelser

«A dazzling examination of our contradictory attitudes towards the creatures with whom we share the planet . . . [A] fantastic, heartfelt history of human-animal relations»

* Guardian *

«[A] heartfelt account of the environmental catastrophe . . . Beastly is a clarion call for the humbler notion that every bit of nature matters»

* Observer *

«A positive, information-packed read about reconnecting with our wild world»

* Independent *

«If you are interested in the animal kingdom; if you are interested in the past, present and future of planet Earth; if you are interested in anything at all - then this gorgeous, joyous, sobering book is for you»

* Irish Times *

«Reading Beastly is a little like padding, barefoot, through a forest . . . Heartfelt»

* New Statesman *

«What a wonderful and unexpected book. The very opposite of beastly: heavenly and amazing, powerful and affecting, a beloved and very fine teller of tales reminds us how small we are in the face of a nature that we neither understand nor wish to respect or, in any real sense, live with»

PHILIPPE SANDS

«I fervently believe everyone should read it . . . From start to finish, it's fabulous»

JAMES HOLLAND

«A brilliant and insightful selection of revealing stories about our complicated relationship with other animals, told with Carew's uniquely smart and stylish verve. A hugely enjoyable, thought-provoking book»

GAIA VINCE

«Many stories linger after reading Beastly: a polyphony in which tale after tale accumulates . . . The book is exhilaratingly busy with ideas . . . A cunningly structured book»

* Perspective *

«Full of necessary rage, joy and passion: BEASTLY should be mandatory reading for all humans»
