Was the home-language of the typer or translator Spanish?
This is without doubt the worst offering from Amazon I have encountered. Perhaps I ordered it on April st which might explain the result. It is only a joke!!!
Incidentally, I have tried several times over the last few days to find out how to delete some versions of a TV programme: Waking the Dead, which I had downloaded to my home TV set.
Can you help?
The cost of 'Voyage of the Beagle' was only about 3 pounds sterling but I would prefer an English version of the book.
Animals living toes above ( feet ?) water ...
Things jogging ( running ? ) along the shore ...
Differences of diploma ( degee? )...
It's a hoot !
However, `the Voyage of the Beagle' is by far the more enjoyable and informative and contains many insights and readable prose. Something must have happened to Darwin after his wonderful five year journey around the world.
I have rarely read two so very different books inn style and attitude by the same author. Indeed, any examination of Darwin's portrait either in sketches, painting or photograph reveals a man not only profoundly ageing but acquiring an expression of increasing gloom. Of course, one might think, as I did, that this was the nature of Victorian Man, at least in terms of a man living in Victorian society.
That society would contrast sharply with the liberal ideas today but then I noticed that Darwin himself had commented on his glum expression saying that people might expect such a man to have few friends. Even his wife, from the few pictures available, appears to have prematurely aged.
Nevertheless, I was struck by the descent of this man into what appeared on view a somewhat morose looking figure. That Darwin's health declined is a well known fact and some suspect that his illness which continued for the rest of his life had origins in his emotional state of mind and therefore sychosomatic.
The Beagle followed a course of exploration which provided Darwin with an opportunity to explore and examine fauna and flora along much of the South American coastline including that of the nearby Falkland Islands and later, of course, his observations on the world famous ground-breaking observations in the Galapagos Islands, for example, two types of Galapagos Lizard; one terrestrial and the other aquatic. He writes:
"I threw one several times as far as I could, into a deep pool left by the retiring tide; but it invariably returned in a direct line to the spot where I stood."
The Beagle sailed farther on to Tahiti, New Zealand, Australia, and other islands including Saint Helena in the South Atlantic before, finally, arriving at Falmouth, England and a new beginning in scientific speculation.
Richard Dawking really brings this amazing travel journal by Charles Darwin of his journey to the Galapogos Islands come to live.
I bought the audio book to listen in the car for my long journeys to and from work, but like any fascinating good book, I could not put it down, but hungered for the next episode of this book.
Since then I have listend to this audio book 5 times and every time it is as magical as the first time. Charles Darwins description of his journey is so vivid, that one can imagine being there and this is helped by Richard Dawkings magnificant reading.
This is a fabulous book, by a fabulous author and genius, read by an amazing scientist and devotee of Darwin, Richard Dawking.
I can highly recommend this.
