AN APPETITE FOR WONDER The Making of a Scientist

by | Read by Richard Dawkins, Lalla Ward

Biography & Memoir • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

British ethologist and evolutionary biologist Dawkins tells his life story with a lot of charm--and a little help from Lalla Ward, who reads his mother's journals. He starts off by going into the story behind his birth first name (Clinton) and then looks back to his early years in Kenya. He remembers most things fondly and sounds resilient even as he recalls the horrors of boarding school. His atheistic perspective permeates his memories. He also has a thoughtful air as he reflects on human nature through the prism of his own experiences. His memories offer a glimpse into British boarding schools and childhood with a touch of wit. Listeners will be drawn in. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2014]
