QI The Pocket Book of Animals Review

Paperback, 224 Pages

By: John Lloyd
Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

I can’t believe it took me so long to read a book about animals! I am a huge animal fan and I spent my childhood watching documentaries about animals on National geographic and other channels. I even dreamed about becoming a vet but pets are not really a thing here and the dream changed!

I stumbled upon this by chance where it was on sale on BD and had a very good price so I had to buy it and see if it is good. I have never seen The QI show and did not know there was one until a friend pointed it out when I updated my status of reading this book.

So this book is about 200 pages long discussing a 100 animals each taking 2 pages. The book mainly discusses their living habitats, what they eat and how they reproduce (may be inappropriate for younger readers) and some of the weird and unique facts about those animals like the fact that worms can get addicted to Nicotine and get withdrawal symptoms when they cut it off.

I think being an animal nerd many of the information provided was not new to me but despite that I still felt it was very enjoyable and thought-provoking. It took me almost a month to go through the animals despite the size of the book because it was informative and the data dump can be overwhelming! I really had fun reading this and will be reading more QI books in the future!
