  • The third volume in the Corfu Trilogy continues the accounts of the young Gerald Durrell during the years that he and his family lived in Corfu before the Second World War While the animals of Corfu are young Gerald s focus, it is the antics of his family and their array of friends and acquaintances that are the centrepiece of the humorous account.

    This is the third and the last of Gerald Durrell's Corfu Trilogy. I think it is best to read them in order. For this reason I am not going to explain the whole story here, because this is not where you should start. When you pick up this book you will already know who everyone is. When you pick up the second and the third book it is like meeting old friends. All the books are both funny and lovely, a spot of sun in the darkness. Are you looking for something light, something to make you laugh? I [...]

    Book 3 is more of the same: hilarious and wonderful stories about the Durrell's live in Greece. I think this one was even funnier than the last two. If there were more of these I'd read them! Most of the funny bits have to do with Gerry and his animals doing crazy things - for instance:"The lamb seemed disappointed that no one was taking any notice of him; he had gambolled a little, decorated the floor, and done two nicely executed pirouettes, but he felt that no one was paying him the attention [...]

    Last of the Corfu trilogy. I remember the day when I found it in the bookshop for the first time. I hugged it like a long lost friend, instantly carried it home. Read it the same day smiling and laughing all the time. I just finished it again, I read it whenever feeling blue, we have the most frightfully cold and wet weather at the moment. It was a perfect remedy. Full of sunshine and innocence of childhood, mixed with quite astute albeit slightly unkind comments about older siblings (which as t [...]

    What can I say? The end of the trilogy was one of my worst days in reading ever. Once being let in the magical and almost surreal world of Durrel's Corfu adventures, you can't seem to let go for long. I know these books by heart, but I still re-read them at least once a year. Not to count all the times when I only search through my favorite places, but end up reading straight through. Durrel's world is like an improved Eden before being chased away - so light, so innocent, so sunny and yet so re [...]

    This is the finish to the trilogy of books Durrell wrote about growing up on Corfu. I love all three books for their combination of family memoir and natural history. Durrell writes well and these books are very funny so beware of reading them on public transportation!These books delighted me as a middle-school aged kid when I read them before and they are just as delightful now as I aspire to adulthood. Some day I will at least visit Corfu, but my true fantasy is to find a strawberry pink villa [...]

    The Garden of the Gods is the third and last in Durrell's Corfu trilogy. I had a hard time finding this book to purchase, but finally got an almost forty year old paperback from England in remarkably good condition for very little money (about $7.00 including shipping).Again, I was delighted with Durrell's writing. He was a genius at writing hilarious conversation and relating humorous episodes. I love laughing out loud when I read his books, but it's hard not to wake up the entire household whe [...]

    Със съжаление приключих с прочитането на трилогията. Благодарна съм на Джералд Даръл за щедрите порции смях и прекрасните спомени от гостоприемната слънчева Гърция, както и за уникалния начин, по който пресъздава погледа на едно десетгодишно дете към света и природата. На [...]

    Durrell mantiene el tipo en su conclusión de la "Trilogia de Corfu", con nuevas, delirantes, y divertidas historias protagonizadas por la familia del escritor en la isla griega.

    The Durrells were an amazing family. Gerry,the author of so many wonderful books, gives a delightful look into his family's lives in Corfu after moving from England. His prose is lush, giving me a feeling as if I also lived there, felt the sun on my face, swam in the ocean near their villa, saw all the animal and insect life he described, and ate some of the wonderful foods his mother cooked. The PBS series is very close to these books.

    Hermien
    I loved the way he gives the animals and insects personalities.

    This is the final part of the "Corfu trilogy." The full review will be posted in the single volume os this trilogy which was kindly sent by my dear friend Themis-Atena.

    Qué penita acabar la trilogía. Leeré más libros de este autor con la esperanza de volver a encontrarme con su divertidísima familia :D

    This is the third volume of the author´s trilogy about his life in Corfu in the 30s immediately prior to the Second World War.Gerard Durrell has a unique gift for writing hilarious prose. He is particularly humorous when describing the heterogeneous members of his family, who are continually arguing and quarrelling amongst themselves.The head of the household is Mother, whose main characteristic is her placatory nature (Oh, I´m sure he didn´t mean it, Larry!). Otherwise she is constantly occu [...]

    Trish
    A lovely conclusion to the trilogy. And the visit of the King of Greece had me in stitches.

    Ian Smith
    An artist of words, Gerald Durrell reconstructs distant memories of his golden childhood on Corfu with evocative and humorous caricatures of people, places and events, brilliantly described in glorious technicolor. A sensory overload of sights, sounds, smells, and tastes pours from every page, liberally sprinkled with vividly flamboyant similes. Just read the first paragraph of the book - simply wonderful. Made me wonder what Gerald Durrell could have achieved had he turned to 'serious' writing. [...]

    Rosemary
    Another diverting read from Gerald Durrell. I got a bit tired of Captain Creech (I don't know how Mrs.Durrell put up with him), but the stories are entertaining and the descriptions of animals are again meticulous and skillful.

    Laura
    I kept having such laughter fits that my dog woke up and came to me with a worried look on its face.

    Naomi
    It's a vey nice book. I enjoyed it. It's not as goood as the "My family and other animals" but it has very funny and interesting stories.

    Tabitha
    argh! I'm so torn on this one. What I loved about it:It feels so good to be in Corfu again!We meet many new characters (including the charming Jeejee) and life in Corfu is fleshed out a bit as we venture into town and interact more with the locals.We learn more about Mother and her background, which is fabulous, because she is probably my favorite character of the whole series and I find her utterly fascinating. We also get to learn a tiny bit more about Theodore, another one of my favorites.Thi [...]

    1977 50th birthday challengeWhere oh where did get this recommendation? I wish I could thank the source. Fauna and Family, also known as The Garden of the Gods, is the third in Durrell’s Corfu trilogy, and it became a show on Masterpiece Theater. I had not heard of any of this family memoir. I read the third book without having read the first two and I think it can be read it on its own, but I wish I had known these characters all along. The family consists of three brothers, one sister and th [...]

    I’m a fan of Gerald Durell so I forgive him for the sweeping generalization of, "like so many Americans, they were possessed of a charming naiveté and earnestness,” depicted through two flamboyant nitwits of whom Leslie played one trick after another. I found that small part of the book annoying. I deducted one star: I had no idea I was so thin-skinned. This is the last book in the trilogy. I’m saving the middle book for my escape from next year’s cold winter. I love the characters, as [...]

    Anna
    Határozottan az a véleményem, hogy ezek a történetek kimeríthetetlen forrásai a vidám, de legalábbis mosolygós pillanatoknak. Minden családban vannak olyan történetek, amik utólag visszagondolva roppant viccesek (mert azt be kell látni, hogy az adott pillanatban nem mindig értékeljük a dolgok pikantériáját) de mégis jobb, ha mások ballépéseiről olvasunk, ugyebár. Azért sokszor irigyeltem azt a világot Gerry-től, a szigetet, az állatok seregletét, a szokatlanabbná [...]

    Patricia
    One-third of the Corfu Trilogy. Very funny!

    Eva
    I really enjoyed it! There weren't quite as many laugh out loud moments as the first two, but overall it felt exactly like coming home to sink into the joys of Corfu for a few hours and enjoy the Durrell family.

    Dave
    No diminishing of pleasure in these continued anecdotes from Corfu. I want to be a ten-year-old boy collecting animals, learning from Theodore and Kralefsky, befriending the locals and observing my crazy family. Read all of these books.

    Ken Fredette
    I was a little upset when I finished the third book of the trilogy because Gerald Durrell was only still a thirteen year old at the time yet he was still looking for anything that was an animal or insect or bird or human. Still his anecdotes of the family was amusing. I can't imagine living on an island like Corfu and having the type of life they had with different people coming and going constantly as the only entertainment. I would recommend this trilogy for everyone's pleasure to read.

    Rita Welty Bourke
    Louisa Durrell, widowed mother of four, decides to move her family from cold, rainy England to the lovely Greek island of Corfu. The dilapidated house she rents has no electricity, but the island is a paradise and living is cheap. Mrs. Durrell’s children, Larry, Leslie, Margo, and Gerry, adjust each in his/her own way: Larry works on a novel, Margo falls in and out of love, Leslie has a love affair with guns, and budding naturalist Gerry fills the house and patio with his collection of fauna: [...]

    Emily
    A complete gem, just like the first two in the series. Delightful, engaging, laugh-out-loud funny. I'd recommend the Corfu trilogy to just about anyone. It was especially nice to read about dreamy, sunny Greece in the middle of a dreary, frigid winter. This one does have a bit more colorful language than the first two books in the trilogy just something to keep in mind if reading aloud to a kid.

    Robert
    Out of the Corfu trilogy this one is the best - it's much ruder than the other two, thanks to captain Creech and the situations described are fantastic. From the farcical picnic, the blue ice cream and the birthday party. All funny.

    Peter Macinnis
    Almost up to the standard of the two that went before, surpassing them in places. Perhaps I am Durrelled out, but this one is definitely a keeper! And Corfu is on my list, perhaps after another week on Kefallonia.
