Sex and the Single Panda: The Revolting Pursuit of Love in the Animal Kingdom. This book had me intrigued from the cover. And even more intrigued as I read the introduction and saw “You may see yourself in here. Or maybe you’ll recognize an ex. You may find yourself saying things like ‘I would have sex with the clownfish!'” and “Although everything in this book is what you might call ‘disgusting.’ I’ll ask you to remember that everything depicted here is 100% from nature, and nature can never be wrong.” Then I started wondering just what I got myself into by opening this book…
Turns out I’m a parasitic fly, so, there’s that… There’s also way too many spiders in this book for a book with a panda on the cover! And you will finish this book knowing way more about animals mating habits than you ever really wanted to, but hey, maybe they’ll come in handy as fun facts at parties?
This is a quick read, a little gross, a lotta fun and worth it if you have some time to kill. (and you might not be the only one?)
I received a free e-copy of this book to read from NetGalley and was not otherwise compensated.
