Assumed Audience: Everyone who loves nature, who is disturbed by the way technology is destroying the natural world, and who is fascinated with cultures, love and people should not give this book a miss.
I enjoyed reading this entire book in one sitting. It is a well-written tale that spans different timelines. We get to see the world through the eyes of an old man who is placed in a conflict between man and nature when his home is disturbed. Despite reading at a fairly old age, he spends his days reading and contemplating love in faraway places. I learned a lot from this book, including information about Ecuador, ocelots, and, more importantly, the detrimental impact of deforestation on rainforests worldwide.
