My Family and Other Animals

Durrell, Gerald (Book - 2004 )
Average Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
My Family and Other Animals

Item Details

When the unconventional Durrell family can no longer endure the damp, gray English climate, they do what any sensible family would do: sell their house and relocate to the sunny Greek isle of Corfu. My Family and Other Animals was intended to embrace the natural history of the island but ended up as a delightful account of Durrell's family's experiences, from the many eccentric hangers-on to the ceaseless procession of puppies, toads, scorpions, geckoes, ladybugs, glowworms, octopuses, bats, and butterflies into their home. .

Durrell is a great storyteller; he can be very funny at times. I enjoyed this fantastic account of his unusual childhood on a Greek island. The BBC production of it pales in comparison.

Gerald Durrell turns his engaging writing on his family daynamics. Quirky, eccentric, highly enjoyable read set in Corfu and boyhood.
