this is a good book if you want to know a lot about gorillas and their habits. if you are looking for a story and something catching and entertaining, than this book is not for you. good facts yes, tragic real life events but very non chronological: animals are described, die and in later chapters they are alive again and are being reintroduced into the events. this makes it rather confusing to follow the individual animals' lives.
