Críticas

The author provides a pretty extensive list of plants that are bad players. The descriptions are interesting and the illustrations are well done. I enjoyed reading the book and learned about many plants that I did not know much about. The information would be helpful to avoid injury or death. It is interesting that the plants have developed the methods for protection and other benefits.

I really enjoyed this. I picked it up because the next novel in the series was on sale, and surely I can't start with the second book, so I checked this one out from the library. The characters are well drawn and interesting, and the story moves along at a good pace. Great fun!

I'm not much of a drinker, but was tempted to buy everything described. Lots of recipes and fascinating facts about plants and alcohol
