Well, if you are interested in moths this is a great book. I have to say the author must have done a ton of research on moths to get so much detail written. Too bad she didn't spend as much time researching how to write a decent novel.

Ugh, Poppy Adams should stick to documentary TV. Predictable, pedantic, sloggish.... just ugh.
