Summary
Part natural history, part memoir, this tells of the author's battle with a devastating illness and the little snail who made such a huge difference in that struggle.
Critique
Intriguing and inspiring, this book is filled with information on an amazing little creature. Although Elisabeth's illness is part of the story, it is her sparsely elegant prose and informed enthusiasm for her unusual companion that ultimately make it also about the indomitable spirit of human beings...and snails.
