4.0 out of 5 stars An enthralling romp through central Africa by one who knows, December 26, 2012
By 
This review is from: Sungudogo (Kindle Edition)
I really enjoyed reading this book. Greg Laden brings to his novel-writing a long and broad experience as an anthropologist in central Africa with deep understanding of both the social and the primatological worlds. The result is a delightful read with lots of nice touches about the joys and perils for a foreigner in Africa. It was one of those books that I returned to each evening (well, only a couple of evenings, because it was much too short) with a genuine sense of happiness at the fun read and intriguing story. It is amazing to think that this was written as a speed-writing challenge, but anyone who has read Greg's Congo Diaries will understand. There are some really inventive things about the mystery primate that amused me as another anthropologist. Read this book and enjoy it.
