A Solid Sequel (despite Adams passing)
1 November 2017 - Published on Amazon.com

Stumbled on this sequel while looking to purchase and reread the original "Last Chance to See" by Adams and Carwardine. Was sad to learn of Adams passing, but Carwardine really held his own in writing this new book while adhering to the same concept in the original of making this a fun, funny, and entertaining read for non-zoologist types. Was sad to learn that some of the species they saw in the first book have become extinct, but inspiring to learn a few others are still surviving and at least one, the Kakapo, somewhat thriving. Great read all around, would highly recommend reading it after purchasing and reading the original.
Amazing book for anyone, not just biologist!

I love this book (I also love the first book from 1990). I stumbled upon this book as a Douglas Adams fan and a book store gift card that I re-found when I was moving. I am now deciding which Mark Carwardine book I should read next. I am a biologist and I am surprised that I haven't heard of these books before. I think this book is amazingly well done and eye-opening for anyone, not just biologists. This does parallel a lot of my beliefs as well as teach a lot of new things to me. I particularly liked how Mark explains the difference between poisonous and venomous, this is something I also teach my students because when they are used incorrectly it bothers me more than I should admit to. Thanks Mark! If my career ends up being half as adventurous as yours reads than I am doing it right.

I saw the miniseries with Carwardine and Stephen Fry before I read this. I'm well acquainted with Fry's wit and humor, and I enjoyed the television episodes thoroughly. Inasmuch as they were a double act, Fry was the funny one, Carwardine the straight man. But reading the book, I was delighted to see that Carwardine has a sly sense of humor that comes out in his writing as he details their adventures searching for endangered species around the world.
What an adventure ... and a wake-up call !

Thoroughly enjoyed Mark's and Stephen's adventures ! Two very witty and funny guys made me laugh often . Also, a very sobering account of the unrelenting destruction we are causing to our environment - and of the activities that have pushed many animals to the brink of extinction .
A brilliant sequel to the original

Mark Carwardine taught a lot to Adams, but it seems he also learnt some writing skills himself. Even if not as well written as the original, this books is witty, the photos and descriptions are really good and everyone who cares about our world should read both.
