Reviews

"This book is a sheer delight for birders and nonbirders alike."
"A lighthearted novel about birding and a wager to win the right to call a woman for a date."
"Nicholas Drayson's engaging new novel...[a] quiet, gently humorous tale." -National Geographic Traveler
"enchanting...Readers will find themselves buying copies for all their birding friends." -Birding Business
"[a] quietly beguiling new novel, A Guide to the Birds of East Africa...reads like transplanted Wodehouse."
"While the reader is pulled along by the suspense of the contest, the glorious sights, sounds, and smells of Nairobi provide lovely rest stops along the way."
"A Guide to the Birds of East Africa will appeal to Alexander McCall Smith fans, but definitely stands on its own and will beguile any reader who appreciates sharp wit and gentle charm." -Shelf Awareness
