Sophia’s October Recommendation

The View from Lazy Point: A Natural Year in an Unnatural World by Carl Safina

“Mr. Safina is a gifted writer.  His writing is poetic and personal without being self indulgent.  It is based in science without being detached or wooden.  It is honest without being bleak.  It is comprehensive in its scope and successfully paints a holistic picture of the evolutionarly connectedness of all life.  Mr. Safina shares all this from his life experiences in a way that speaks to naturalists, scientists, and lovers of good literature.  This is a delightful book for all who love and care about the beautiful treasure that is our world, and that we share with all living beings, plant and animal.  To be nibbled at and enjoyed over time, much like a box of delicious chocolates!”
