This is the story of the voyage of The Beagle; the journey which inspired Charles Darwin to write his "Origin of species". It concentrates on the relationship between Darwin and the ship's captain, Robert FitzRoy, who has slipped into relative obscurity. I didn't expect to enjoy this book and had approached it as something I should read, rather than something I wanted to read. I, however, became completely immersed in the story and can't recommend this book enough. I have bought it for countless friends' birthdays and they have all enjoyed it too.
