I had not read Mary Roach in a few years, so I was delighted that her new book dealt with nature colliding with humanity. A subject that fascinates and horrifies me. There is her usual humor here but she mostly takes an informative dive into many areas, where animals and even trees, cross deadly paths with people. She covers bears, mountain lions, deer, elephants, albatross, macaques and mice. She also offers some solutions, for a better co-existence with this wildlife. A good, solid read and Roach does a fine job narrating the audiobook. ( )

Mary Roach consistently produces entertaining fact-based books – books that your learn from and have a few chuckles in the process. Not many authors can do that. Only Bill Bryson comes to mind, actually. In this instance, she investigates the confrontation between mankind and the natural world. More specifically, the way humans deal with the often troublesome, pesky relations with animals and birds. Loosely linked reports of mankind's issues with bears, gulls, rodents, leopards, elephants, and many others, pose the practical and ethical problems that scientists face in understanding how to cope with the interface. I learned things and I had a good time. ( )

I adore Mary Roach and her latest microhistory was no exception. I devoured this in one day. Each chapter deals with real life scenarios on human rules that animals break. It's equal parts hilarious and nauseating, but all around fascinating. Mary Roach is America's funniest science writer and her foray into the animal kingdom is amazing. There is a bit of gore or violence against animals in these pages (she pulls stories from all over the world), but the message is positive and empathetic. Rowdy, ridiculous and informative. ( )

_Fuzz_ is exactly what you'd expect from a Mary Roach book: interesting bits of information tangled up with silliness, and all wrapped around a core of serious exploration of various aspects of some set of related issues. In this case, she's exploring the conflict zone between animals, just trying to do their thing, and humans, annoyed by animals interfering with **their** things. And so we learn about deer, bears, elephants, mountain lions, leopards, monkeys, mice, rats, cats, stoats, birds, and the humans who are trying to mediate between the animals and the other humans.
I could write more about the specifics, but if you're interested in animals and humans (also animals, of course), you should just read her book. I learned a bunch of interesting trivia, had some of my assumptions and beliefs challenged, and added a few new things to be worried about. ( )

nonfiction - large pest control (mammals, not bugs) - history, ethics, interesting factoids

another diverting read from Mary Roach. The first chapter (when animals maul/maim) is fascinating but somewhat unpleasant; the rest of the book (dealing with lesser crimes and misdemeanors) is equally fascinating and more enjoyable. ( )
