  7. Jeannette told me it s funny and heartwarming a love story about birds and Kenya and she was right A Guide to the Birds of East Africa seems at first a charming but slight book, even a silly one.The plot hasspeedy twists and turns than a black mamba but it s much friendlier I loved the protagonist, Mr Malik a truly good and gentle man and all the supporting cast were wonderfully alive and drawn with affectionate humor I grew particularly fond of the lawyer who loved to drop Latin Jeannette told me it s funny and heartwarming a love story about birds and Kenya and she was right A Guide to the Birds of East Africa seems at first a charming but slight book, even a silly one.The plot hasspeedy twists and turns than a black mamba but it s much friendlier I loved the protagonist, Mr Malik a truly good and gentl...
