Produktbeskrivning

Recension

"Svensson . . . melds the personal and scientific in this captivating look at the European eel. . . . Nature-loving readers will be enthralled by [his] fascinating zoological odyssey."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Enthralling.--Colorado Springs Gazette

"A beguiling chronicle."--Nautilus

"Svensson has, quite stunningly, discovered in the natural and human history of the European eel a metaphor for his father's life and a way to explore questions of knowledge, belief and faith."--Washington Post

"Captivating . . . shot through with electric current. The book's deadpan title perhaps undercuts its depth and complexity. Yes, this is a book about eels, those uncanny creatures, but in Svensson's capable hands it is also a book about obsession and mystery, about faith and science, and about the limits of knowledge . . . Like Annie Dillard and Rachel Carson, Svensson knows the best nature writing is done with emotion and drive."--Minneapolis Star Tribune

"An account of the mysterious life of eels that also serves as a meditation on consciousness, faith, time, light and darkness, and life and death. . . . an intriguing natural history . . . that sheds as much light on humans as on eels."--Kirkus Reviews

"An unusual and beguiling guide to an unusual and beguiling animal. . . . Svensson's book, like its subject, is a strange beast: a creature of metamorphosis, a shape-shifter that moves among realms. It is a book of natural history, and a memoir about a son and his father. It is also an exploration of literature and religion and custom, and what it means to live in a world full of questions we can't always answer."--The New Yorker

"Blending a wonderfully evocative and succinct timeline of scientific discoveries about eels with a memoir of his changing relationship with his father, Svensson has produced an extremely readable book on a fish that all have heard of but few (on our side of the pond) have actually seen."--Booklist

"Captivating . . . The Book of Eels is, in the end, not really about eels but about life itself."--Wall Street Journal

"Fascinating."--What's Jordana Reading, Summer Reads
