O'Hanlon takes us into the bug ridden rain forest between the Orinoco and the ,
N met name omdat ik de nederlandse namen niet ken Hier is een heel mooi boek van een recentere expeditie met rachtige foto s en Boyfriends from Hell plaatjes vermoed dat O Hanlon meer colourful language in het oorspronklijke Engelse tekst gebruikte en dat mis ik in de vertaling In z n geheel was dit een interessant boek met veel informatie maar het maakt dat ik meer wil lezen over de Yanomani indianen en dat heb ik gisteren ook gedaan Blijkbaar wordt hun leven nu meer onder druk gezet door illegale goudmijners de ziekten die ze brachten milieu vervuiling en sinds 2000 is er ook kritiek op antropologen zoals Chagnon die zoals nu beweerd gebruikte de Yanomami om op te experimenteren Misschien in O Hanlons boek dus n van de laatste waar de mensen nog op hun oorspronkelijke levenswijze geobserveerd werden In ieder geval heel interessantNB Misschien wil Paperfish dit lezen I really loved this book because O Hanlon describes his journey with so much detail you get the delusion you are at the yourselfWhile reading you got a lot of sympathy for Redmond Hisatience curiosity the way he acts and accepts the things he s got to deal with But for the most of his writing with much detail and especially a lot of humour All environments are described very well dialogue s and his travel Battered Not Broken partners the wildlife tribes and their habits and the danger of it all Often you think O Hanlon won t survive the book A real adventure A very special read experience and very instructive as well If you have traveled the this is a way to relive the experience the animals and birds insects and sense of the rainforest His formidable knowledge of the flora fauna and his fellow man isresented in an off hand way and his feigned innocence of the dangers What Ive Become (The Humanity Within Book 1) provides the right touch of wry humor If you haven t been there orlan to go however this may not be to your taste The book is robably better than a three but I have a weak stomach and there are some disgusting things in the jungles of South America not to mention lots of snakes I give a lot of credit to the auhtor for what he did He boated down some rivers in the basin looking for the rivers in the basin looking for the Indians He set off with his friend from London Simon and South Americans who worked on expeditions in that area The journey sounded uite harrowing and Simon who was a bit of comic relief left relatively early Redmond O Hanlon really immersed himself in the culture eating Fear Factor type meals and bonding with an outcast Yanomami even doing Yoppo the local drug with him When he finally reaches some real Yanomami Indians I was nervous for him and his South American cohorts The Yanomami are a dangerous bunch and they don t like those who don t follow their customs I do wish that I was a bit up on birds I don t really know enough to match their whistles and calls with their species and frankly I am not a morning erson and that is when they are at their most active and it rather annoys me But that is when they are at their most active and it rather annoys me But do think he stumbled upon some birds that are uncommon and to a bird lover that would be really uite thrilling A different style of travel book With zany humour The jungles of the world have always attracted me as little understood frontiers of experience and UML Weekend Crash Course [With CDROM] places full of wildlife wonders I read his book about travel in Congo jungle years ago and felt much the same about this one There is something missing clear narrative maybe which made it difficult for me to get into It didn t hold me as I would have expected it to I was also disturbed by the tendency for his group to kill everything that moved though they had to find their food somehow I suppose A mixt.

Ure of minute old fashioned naturalistic observation of lants mammals and especially birds in the ian rain forest and the vicissitudes of traveling with a motley crew of locals along with O Hanlon s alcoholic English friend Simon who comes along for a kind of comic counterpoint to the meticulous O Hanlon but can t take any and drops out a little than halfway through the book In Trouble Again loses something when Simon goes because he is a kind of cynical everyman having no idea why he decided
to come along 
come along the obsessive Redmond in the first To the Golden Shore place He thusrovides spice to what might otherwise be a throwback to the standard 19 th century Englishman s dogged exploration of the wonders of foreign lands Without Simon O Hanlon is left with a Colombian scientist and two or three hanger on roustabouts who go with him for the money These Indulge (Warm Delicacy, people are interesting for a while but gradually become rather tedious and tend to blend into one another In the last fiftyages or so O Hanlon and crew come upon the legendary Yanomami who they expect to annihilate them with Tabloid City poison arrows then eat their flesh The natives it seems have even fear of their jungle compatriots than do outsiders conditioned by the tendentious largely discredited ravings of the infamous Napoleon Chagnon who forms O Hanlon s view of the tribe as much as he does everyone else s The Yanomami however turn out to be a friendly humorous lively group of hunters gatherers and tricksters who want O Hanlon and his bunch to give them things but never act remotely aggressive or fierce Four of them even join O Hanlon sarty and travel with him becoming good friends in the Kirkland Revels process valued for their expert hunting skills O Hanlon has great fun decimating the stereotypes of anthropologists which iserhaps the book s most attractive feature All in all In Trouble Again is well written sumptuous at times harrowing and at times funny but lacks much narrative drive and is weighted down by O Hanlon s overly detailed heavy naturalistic descriptions most of which seem to come from his reading of earlier books rather then actual observation A bit slow but worth reading for its several virtues This is a good book unfortunately I read it with my wife and this was not as enjoyable to her It is about several males that head out into the wilds together and very much a man S Story Much As Any Hunting Or Fishing Story With story much as any hunting or fishing story with of bathroom jokes and farting jokes The descriptions of the wilderness and the flora and fauna are wonderful I really like how the author freuently compares his experiences with those of To Him Who Sits on the Throne previous explorers in the same area with liberal uotes from those former explorers included This is an excellent read for anyone with interest in this area of the world The second half reallyicks up and is much interesting than the first Redmond is so wacky This is armchair travel writing at its finest O Hanlon s account of his journey along the river systems of Venezuela is funny exhausting and enthralling as he battles swarms of black fly oisonous snakes grumpy colleagues and recalcitrant guides He is as observant as only a dedicated naturalist can be and his account is the next best thing to being there No actually I would say it is better than being there since it has convinced this reader that this is one lace I will never wish to visit notwithstanding O Hanlon s entirely matter of fact acceptance of all things Youth, Beautiful Youth parasitic mouldy and otherwise gross But for reading while snuggled up in a comfortable arm chair with a ready supply of coffee and croissant to hand this is a wonderful accoun.
