A good idea and listen.
Where does Wild Scotland rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
somewhere in the middle. Okay, but not my favourite.
What other book might you compare Wild Scotland to, and why?
It's the same in concept as Wild London but different sounds.
What does Fiona McCarthy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
What a stupid question. This book wouldn't work in print. the sounds of animals need to be listened to. No phonetics can really come close to the natural sounds. Fiona doesn't do anything other than announce each species.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Any additional comments?
I think this is a good idea and I enjoyed listening to it. again, I've heard the mammalian sounds before in other books.
