This book was a surprising joy! My friend Katie and I picked it up as a laugh (because we are guilty-pleasure lovers of Pretty Little Liars) and ended up having such a great time getting to know Ian Harding! His writing is smart and goofy and he isn’t afraid to make fun of himself. (Katie and I both appreciated it when he described his natural state as “sweaty.” Finally! Someone understands us!)
Harding gives us a fun look into birding as well, a hobby that I do not relate to at all. By taking the reader through some of his birding experiences, he educates you about both the physical act of watching birds as well as the psychological upsides.
This book isn’t incredibly deep but it is a lot of fun. I’m so glad I got to know more about Ian Harding. (Also, you have to read it so that you can hear about the year he spent as a jellyfish.)
