Thoughts by Helen Macdonald, Recorded Books 2020, 10 hours 22 minutes
Narrated by the author. Winner of TOP FIVE Audiobooks by AudioFile magazine.
Genre/Theme: Nonfiction, essays on nature
What It’s About: Essays on nature and birds and more nature and other stuff that interests the author. She’s a very good writer. My favorite of this collection has to be the one about her first job out of university, at a falcon incubator (?) farm in Wales.
Thoughts: Macdonald’s previous published title, H is for Hawk , is one of the very best audiobooks I have ever had the privilege of listening to. I read Vesper Flights on the strength of my admiration for Helen Macdonald.
Rating: Four slices of pie. No pie mentioned.

I need to try this one and Hawk. Was the audio narration pleasant?
VERY, at least imho. She has that smart lady British accent. AND…. I will point you to my review of H is for Hawk where I gush that it was a fabulous narration. I do hop you try either or both!
