Rather than his own review of a book this week, Mark has dedicated his Sunday book review to the winner of his recently concluded book reviewing contest. The challenge: review George Monbiot‘s book Feral; Rewilding the Land, the Sea, and Human Life. The submitted reviews were then read, critiqued, and scored by a most eminent and distinguished panel of judges. The one with the best marks was then declared to be the winner.

Just who wrote the best review and what opinion of Monbiot’s book did it express? You can read it in its entirety on Mark’s website.

Mark Avery’s book reviews appear in The Well-read Naturalist by special arrangement. You can find all of Mark’s past reviews as well as a wide-ranging collection of his other writings on his Standing Up for Nature website.
