Some essays were great, some good, some not so much though the theme of birding that ran right through was interesting in itself too. Worth the time to read it for sure.

Franzen is a very good writer and he writes about a variety of topics. I learned a lot about the state of birds in the world which is quite sad. Another good article on technology and the loss of conversation is worth reading and sharing. Franzen seems open and honest in essays--he has a somewhat self-deprecating tone which may or may not be a device. I felt his pain at the loss of nature.

The sixteen essays in this collection are either literary commentaries, reminiscences on his family, or bird-list building travelogues. Franzen often ponders global climate change and is rather resigned and pessimistic about its impact on bird populations. His writing style tends to be overly learned.

How love and empathy are the only ways forward.
