Book Review: Last Chance to See by Douglas Adams, Mark Carwardine

Picture a pleasant summer day with a light soothing breeze. Now picture yourself sitting under an old tree surrounded by a green field. The field waves along with the wind and you can feel the warmth of the air. But there in the outskirt of this peaceful, serene moment pollution, loud noises, and dying animals wait. Listening to this book was just like that. You could either concentrate on Adams’s words and their descriptive power or see the facts that dolphins are hit by boats, forced to live in sewage water and are bombarded with loud noises of human life. You can choose.

I would like to say more, something profound of the work, but this is not that sort of book. Yes, the book can be live altering and informative if it’s the first time you find out there are species dying because of our actions and that people can be bit daft and hilarious around the world with their odd habits. But such a wonder has passed since the book has been published and those facts are part of our everyday life (okay not every day, but at least every other day.) This doesn’t mean it isn’t worth to read or listen to as I did. The book is perfect for those melancholic moments when the only thing that can cheer you up is knowing the fact we are all doomed (by our own actions.) Or there is the option of going with the light breeze and shutting your eyes from extinction, us, and from the knowledge that our existence is at best a tragicomedy.
