I am a high school sophomore and I read this book for my English Research Project. Though, this book was very descriptive, there were parts of this autobiography that was difficult to read at sometimes. For example, I despised reading about him collecting his specimens and explaining what he had collected. To fully understand this book there needs to be some outside research done as well. The most interesting parts of the book was when talks more of his personal life rather than his research. Although Darwin has made a big impact on the world today, I was mostly intrigued by him talking about his wife and his family. Throughout the book, it is fascinating how he explains his views on religion. I really enjoyed how throughout the book, he talks about his symptoms from his undiagnosed illness and how it affected his work. Over all I recommend reading this book strictly for helping on a research project and not as a fun read.
