    1 thought on “A Dark Place in the Jungle: Following Leakey's Last Angel Into Borneo”

    1. This book really should have 2.5 stars, rather than 3, but since I did keep reading it all the way through and since there were things that I enjoyed learning about, I went for the 3. It is run through with petty anxieties and quarrels. Those of the author have only petty consequences (anxieties about her relationships with her daughters, her hurt feelings due to encounters with Gladikas etc) and they get very old very quickly, but the petty quarrels that Galdikas has gotten into have had a pote [...]

    2. A woman tries to follow Dr. Birute Galdikas into Borneo to understand her work to save orangutans. Birute is the orangutan equivalent of Jane Goodall and Dian Fossey and perhaps just as controversial as the latter. Good discussion of the conflict between saving wild orangutans and caring for orphaned ones.

    3. Okay, so I know Linda. But I still loved this book. Seriously. I'm not just bullshitting to keep from embarrassing myself in front of a friend. I can believe what that NUT JOB Birute Galdikas is doing in Borneo. She's got to be stopped. I worked myself up into such a rage over this that I called Linda to holler my fury. She, of course, had put all this out of her mind years ago.

    4. The examination into the world of orangutan preservation and the role of Birute Galdikas is thought-provoking even though I learned more about the author herself than I really wanted to.

    5. Combines a travel journal with being a naturalist and discovering the plight of orangutans in Borneo and Sumatra. Good read
