Why are we drawn to birds, to landscape, to nature? It is for the sense of wonder - and in capturing that sense of wonder, Fiennes reminds us how desperately we all need it
The Snow Geese moved me as have few other recent books. No one who reads it is likely to continue to look at the world in the same way
A beautifully solitary and beautifully reflective book
The descriptions of the geese and their environment are jaw-droppingly beautiful. But Fiennes' most remarkable talent is for describing the quotidian with such freshness that it is like seeing the world for the first time
