A touching and wrenching tale of a woman s experiences in her personal life and career with a backstory set in Africa Hope Clearwater faces many challenges with her work as a scientist much of the time observing chimpanzees near a remote academic camp in Africa as well as the emotional upheavals in her marriage to an eccentric mathematician With a wide variety of settings uirkiness and unsettling events the reader is given a uniue glimpse into Hope s unfailingly human reactions to the tumult and her steadfastness in keeping true to herself and not what others want her to be for their self interestsThe author has created such an honest and sympathetic character in Hope that it seemed as if each time I began reading it was like spending time with a friend an honest friend who isn t afraid to share her feelings I didn t want to rush through this book but it was unavoidable for me to put it down for long I feel that I will be thinking about this story and about Hope for uite a while

I delighted in this book because it tells a compelling human story with a rich framework of ideas that appeal to me The tale is of a woman Hope Clearwater reflecting back on her work and marriage in England to a mathematician and her work and life studying chimp behavior in the Republic of Congo both of which ended in disaster She is unable to move forward without making some sense out of the wisdom vs stupidities in her role in the disasters As uoted from Socrates in the epilogue and close of the book An unexamined life is not worth living Boyd alternates the narrative of Hope s life in Africa told in first person with that of her life in England rendered in third person The contrast between these two parts of her life as well as Western and African cultures represents a central challenge for Hope and thus Boyd to integrate Each section is introduced with a segment from mathematical or biological sciences which reflect on work concerns of her mathematician husband or herself I love how Boyd has Hope trying to use analogies from academic advances to provide structure for her efforts to understand her life s journey For example her husband John makes a lot of progress in areas of turbulence and catastrophe theory which fuels her efforts to account for sudden discontinuities in her own life as John s own psychological instability leads him to focus instead on invariance of forms in the field of topology she looks to how other people differ from her ultimately in only in minor ways She also learns a lot about the relativism of frames of reference which she relates her own mood influencing her levels of optimism or pessimism To me Boyd isn t making a heavy philosophical stretch here but he is illustrating very well how people link abstract ideas to their personal lives and outlookIn the case of Hope s work at the research station the parallels between primate and human behavior represent a substantive analogy For decades Jane Goodall s work on chimps in their natural environment captivated the world with a vision of largely peaceful almost Edenic society which we as their closest evolutionary relatives might somehow aspire to regain The shock of discovery that chimps in some circumstances engage in infanticide cannibalism and lethal territorial warfare put an end to such simplistic thinking As this work was widely publicized it is not much of a spoiler to reveal that the plot of this book deals with Hope making discoveries of such violence and encountering conflicts and resistance in acceptance of her findings I thought Boyd s portrayal of conflicts between scientific objectivity and human biases and emotions to be uite plausible although I am sure the scientists involved in this work would be offended over the dramatic fictionThe book includes a segment where the unstable politics of the Congo intrude dangerously on the lives of the scientists in the form of actions by a revolutionary faction Compared to the murder of gorilla researcher Dian Fossey in Rwanda the events included in this narrative are restrained but frighteningly realistic The charming rebel leader featured Dr Amilcar deflates Hope s sense of the importance of her scientific work by exclaiming You value a monkey than a human and by concluding You think that if you know everything you can escape from the world But you can t Hope is a fully realized character that I admired both as a strong woman hero and as a very human scientist As made clear at the start she survives the cataclysmic climaxes of both threads of her life revealed at the end As
