9 out of 10

bought for 1 fr at swapshop. It is a remarkable and surprising book about Mary Anning and Elizabeth Philpot, fossil hunters; an unsual and touching friendship between two women of different class and age, and based on real people.

Ramené du Livre sur les Quais! Je me réjouis de le lire, j'ai beaucoup apprécié les livres de Tracy Chevalier lus jusque-là!

9 out of 10

J'avais beaucoup aimé les deux romans de Tracy Chevalier que j'avais lus auparavant et j'ai adoré celui-ci, qui a été mon dernier coup de cœur de 2016. Une belle histoire d'amitié entre deux femmes que tout semble opposer et une passionnante description des débuts de la paléontologie! Je regrette d'avoir attendu si longtemps pour le lire!

Journal Entry 6 by readingrunner at Lausanne, Vaud Switzerland on Wednesday, April 19, 2017

After years of "releasing" my own books unofficially after having read them, I was delighted to find this one, by an author I know and like, in a local pizza restaurant. I'd heard of BookCrossing from a friend who participates, and finding this book was the impetus I needed to finally sign up.

I enjoyed reading it and learning about the two remarkable human creatures featured in this work of historical fiction. Mary Anning is an inspiring character, as is her friend and fellow fossil-hunter Elizabeth Philpot!

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

It's a sunny yet windy day - come and look for this book on a bench by the lake, but be sure to bring a warm jacket if you're planning to read it sur place !
