Many thanks to the Village of Potsdam. Its beautiful toilet gardens make it a premier destination for anyone visiting Upstate New York.
Obvious snark aside, this caught my attention because I spent four years in Potsdam while attending Clarkson University, and I have no idea what this reference is about. I had to look up the Potsdam toilet gardens on Google, where I found that they are collections of toilets being used as planters on a couple of different properties. Apparently, these began as a zoning protest, but have become something of a fixture in town. Makes me wonder what else has changed since I finished school...
There is plenty of action and drama in this short book, but I think the thing that most appealed to me was the slightly off beat sense of humor. Many (most?) of the chapter titles are puns, and the characters in this book are a bunch of academic misfits who I found myself identifying with, especially their quirky jokes.
Over all, this was an entertaining read. I'm not sure I enjoyed it enough to actively seek out more by this author, but if I happen to come across another book, I would certainly consider reading it.
Oh...the toilet gardens in the acknowledgements make sense now. The author has used them as inspiration and worked something like them into the story. How do they fit into a story about scientists working in Africa, you ask? Well, you'll just have to read the book to find out.
