Reviews of The Voyage of the Beagle

Overall customer rating: 5.000
Hoapili

A scientific breakthrough and adventure story

by Hoapili on Mar 3, 2009

This is Charles Darwin's rewrite of the journal of his voyage round the world in a British exploring vessel, the Beagle. Its scientific significance is that in it he records observations that gave him inklings that species were not eternally fixed but could evolve. It's also a rattling good adventure and travel story. The best book I took to the Galapagos,it made serious fun tracing Darwin's movements, and fun fun teasing my fellow greenies. "The hawks are so tame I pushed one off his perch with the muzzle of my shotgun", "The tortoises of James Island are esteemed especially tasty." led to "Why are you shcked? I was quoting Darwin."
