|recommend book⇒Bonobo Handshake: A Memoir of Love and Adventure in the Congo|
|Vanessa Woods is the last person on earth you would want as a girlfriend. The world resolves around her. Your purpose in the world is to please her. She is good looking and shamelessly likes to use that to exploit others. Oddly, she realises this and is completely candid about her outrageous demands on others. She leads a chaotic adventurous life with chimps, bonobos and murderous Congolese soldiers. She is not in the least squeamish about describing sex and shocking violence. Her historical summaries are masterful. Everything she tells you is interesting and relevant and surprising. She seems to get inside the heads of history’s greatest villains and studies them without horror, but with curiosity. In theory, this book is about bonobos (a gentle species of insanely horny chimp), but she uses that a home base to take off in hundreds of mildly relevant digressions. The audio book is unusually well done. The narrator impersonates unique voices for all the characters.|
