I thought that this book was the BEST biography I have ever read. I liked it so much because it was more like a novel instead of a biography. The book helped me learn what Jane Goodall really went through in order to become the person that she is today. It was very interesting to read about how she could not to the Chimpanzee National Park for such along time due to all of the revolts that were going on at the time. It was also very interesting in the way that Jane Goodall described all of the animals that she saw, like the leopard and the chimpanzees and the bush baby! This was a very exciting read for me and I would recommend it to anyone who needs a short, but great biography to read.

My Life with Chimpanzees was a good book in the beginning because she described her adventures with the chimps (and bush babies). Jane taught us alot about animal cruelty and the life of the animals that are suffering in Africa. I would not recomend this book to anyone ...
My Life with Chimpanzees was a good book in the beginning because she described her adventures with the chimps (and bush babies). Jane taught us alot about animal cruelty and the life of the animals that are suffering in Africa. I would not recomend this book to anyone who is easily bored and is looking for a fun, thrilling, and funny book (although the pictures were very cute!). In the end it gets very repetitive. It was more of an instruction manual then a story. The last quarter was ideas of helping the envirorment geared to little children.

    Everyone knows that feeling of success, victory, or accomplishm

    Everyone knows that feeling of success, victory, or accomplishment; you start to sprout out of that hard shell and face towards the warmth of the beaming, bright light of the horizon. Two things I liked about the book, was how she used a man who studied and cared for ducks as a hook. The other thing that I like about Jane Goodall’s memoir: My Life with the Chimpanzees, was how she expressed how the wild chimpanzees piqued her interest, and this made her want to know more. One thing that I disliked was how she gave the chimpanzees weird names. I would recommend other readers to read My Life with the Chimpanzees by Jane Goodall, because she has an interesting childhood history and adventure as an adult. However, I would especially highly recommend it to readers who like animals and adventure.

    The Outstanding Book

    I think the book I picked was a very good book. It was a true story of Jane Goodall's life when she went to Gombe,Africa.She had a good job in Africa, she loved to watch the chimpanzees in the jungle. She played with the chimpanzees and discoverd and amazed by what they do.
