Self-described “internet zoologist” Ndiaye gleefully expounds on the rather large number of animals who can kill a human. The author gained a huge following posting animal-related videos on TikTok during the COVID lockdown and makes a great narrator of his own work. He combines facts with humor and an ability to include ingenious turns of phrase that will make listeners determined to hear every word. Mostly focused on the ways one can meet their maker, there are also some survival tips, and, if those fail, suggestions on how to make peace at the end. The print version of this book contains lots of great photos and graphics, but the audio makes one feel like they are in the room with the author, which is a fun place to be.
VERDICT Recommended for nature lovers, anyone who spends time watching cute animal videos, and science buffs. Some adult language is included, so beware of recommending to young children. Do your patrons a favor and make this delightful audio book available to them. Most everyone else will thank you.
