Ein Traum von Buch - soviel Lebensfreude und Lebensmut. Auf englisch oder deutsch nur zu empfehlen. Nicht nur für Biologieinteressierte.

Die ersten beiden Kapitel gingen ja noch aber dann wird es immer uninteressanter. Kapitelweise Erklärungen welche Schneckenteile es gibt und wofür sie gut sind - allemal für Biologiestudenten vielleicht interessant. Für alle anderen zum Gääääähnen. Hab mich selten so geärgert, mir aufgrund von Empfehlungen von sogenannten Experten ein Buch gekauft zu haben.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Quick but powerful read on the author's recovery and the life of a snail 28. Februar 2017
Von Allen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating
4

What I thought I was going to be reading:
I read this at the same time I began listening to another similarly themed nature memoir, “H is for Hawk.” I have not read any other nature memoirs, so I don’t have much of a background for the genre itself. I do, however, tend to enjoy personal memoirs, especially ones with emotional turmoil and grief. I saw that this was a rather quick read, so I downloaded the e-book and started reading.

What I actually read:
The book focuses on one woman’s journey to some semblance of recovery after experiencing a debilitating international infection that left her almost all the way paralyzed. The narrator receives a pet snail from a friend while she is at home on bed rest. The chapters switch from the author’s observations of the snail to actual scientific explanations of snails as a species to stories of the author’s illness and recovery. The author finds comfort in her observations of the snail, as she fights through mental and physical isolation.

What to expect:
This memoir offers a nice balance of scientific description on snails and a personal narrative of the author’s life and recovery. This was a light read, with chapters being only a few pages long. I enjoyed learning about snails and their habits and how the author weaves her story into her observations of her companion snail.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Snails Really are Fascinating 18. Dezember 2013
Von Sharry Miller - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Elisabeth Tova Bailey was struck down, quite literally, by a virus. She spent long months unable to even turn over in bed without exhausting herself. She spent those months in a room with a window she couldn't see out of and surrounded by plain white walls. Her only solace came from a friend who inexplicably picked up a woodland snail and brought it to Bailey in a pot of wild violets. She became fascinated by this small mollusk. She spent hours observing it, and led by questions arising from her observation, she spent more hours reading heavy tomes about molluscan biology. She even became the first person known to witness a snail tending its eggs. Eventually, she was well enough to convalesce at home, and she chose to have the snail returned to its natural home, too. She missed it.

The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating is Elisabeth Tova Bailey's account of her time with the snail (she never gave it a name) and her illness. She shares her observations, her musings, and a bit about how she felt. Rather than being the morbid account of a bed-bound victim, The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating is a fascinating glimpse into the life of a creature most of us would never notice.

The sound? Bailey describes it as little teeth nibbling celery.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fall in Love with a Snail, Learn, and Live Every Page 5. Mai 2015
Von Kkhymn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Well, I finished reading "The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating" by Elizabeth Tova Bailey.

All I can say is everyone should read this book, and EVERY page of it - from the quotes, to prologue, each chapter, epilogue and appendix.

The book starts with one of my favorite quotes about loving your questions and living in the answers, even when they are unclear. The book then shares the intimate thoughts and observations of a woman finds friendship with a woodland snail as she is forced to face changes in her life and body when she gets a chronic debilitating disease.

Those who live with a chronic illness will hear their own voice in the author's words and experiences, while all the readers can learn the every day lessons of this snail.

Lessons in life about slowing down to see and hear the littlest of things because every moment matters. Lessons reminding us that every living creature is here for a reason, even a person who is broken by pain and illness and living life at a snail's pace. And lessons of change, as something we battle, adapt to, survive and actually live through.

5.0 von 5 Sternen LOVELY!!! 16. August 2014
Von Ronda Blank - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I found this little book by accident. I was checking out children s books with my grandchildren at their local library and it was sitting on the counter. The title alone caught my interest....I personally found small book to have a personal profound impact as a person who realizes that life no mater how well thought out can throw you a curve. Personally I don't feel that one could fully enjoy or understand the power behind each word until they or someone they love has walked down a similar path...each word is carefully chosen...and is deliciously descriptive. It stayed with me long after I returned it to the library so I decided I needed to own a copy. If you don't enjoy this book You're just not there yet...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Perfect Gem of a Book 12. Januar 2017
Von judyh - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Personally, I would give this book far more than five stars. Why? First, because it is a true story beautifully written. Second, because it is about a snail, and it's fascinating. I wanted to run outside to find my personal snail. (Fortunately I came to my senses.) The author has managed to keep the reader interested, while delving deeply into the life of a snail, which is much more interesting than one would think. A really beautiful little book.
