    One thought on “Gorilla”

    1. Even though this book was interesting, I wish it focused on the gorilla in a more scientific way. A majority of the book was dedicated with its interactions with humans and our portrayal of them, and the science being used as background information. It's fine, but I just would have liked it if the focus was the other way around.
