Not only did I not ever pay attention to snails (well, not since childhood anyways), but I actually sort of abhorred them. Might be something lingering from a time when I was fortunate to have access to garden plots. I found this title referenced in and set out to read it shortly after finishing 'Unseen City,' and I'm pleased I did. Who knew gastropods could be so interesting! A short, easy read filled with lovely quotes, poem stanzas, and the author's observations and experiences.
