Absolutely stunning book, it's a true country persons book. Full of facts, pragmatic and honest, nature is red in tooth and claw and this book does not shy away or soften that fact
The author allows nature to run its course and though observing his otters he does not interfere with them and I applaud him for that and it is all to easy to intervene.
This is an immensely enjoyable listen, pure escapism and I found it very educational. I learned things about the otter that I would not have suspected but there is also so much detail about the life cycles on the river, its moods and seasonal changes which embroider the detail on to your minds eye. There is a lot of detail on the other inhabitants that call it home not to mention the historical details that lead to the decline of our otter population in the U.K which was an unexpected bonus.
It is a joyful book, listening to the exploits of the family of otters is a privilege, well written, the narration is perfect. I cannot recommend highly enough.

I liked this book so much I am going to buy the hardback copy. Very informative and captivating. I can't wait to get my hands on the real thing.
