A review by crazytourists_books
A Life on Our Planet: My Witness Statement and a Vision for the Future, by David Attenborough

emotional informative inspiring sad fast-paced

5.0

Yesterday was my one year anniversary as a vegetarian. After watching the film seaspiracy, I realised that the way we live and eat is not sustainable. I had already started making small changes in my family's everyday life, and it was time to change my approach towards food. 
Yesterday, I needed a book to spend the waiting time before a blood test appointment and I thought this one would be a good choice. And it was. It made me feel the same way I felt after watching seaspiracy. 
The first part made cry and the second part left me heartbroken. I wish I could share Sir Attenborough's optimism that we can avoid complete destruction, but I don't. And I am sorry for that. 
I liked the book, it is nicely written, vivid, direct, interesting. I couldn't put it down and finished it in only two days.
