Review of “An Immense World: Uncovering the Hidden Realms Through Animal Senses”


Are you tired of seeing the world through the same old boring perspective? Do you want to discover the hidden wonders that surround us every day? Look no further than An Immense World by Ed Yong.

This book is not your typical scientific analysis of the animal kingdom. Instead, Yong takes us on an adventurous journey to uncover the secrets of how animals see and perceive our world. It’s a “dazzling” and “thrilling” ride that will forever change the way you view everything around you.

Yong offers a fascinating look into how different animals experience the world through their unique senses. From the way beetles are attracted to fires, turtles that navigate using the Earth’s magnetic fields, and fish that use electrical messages, to the abilities of humans wielding sonar like bats, we discover a whole new world unseen by our own eyes.

But it’s not just the obvious creatures that we’ll be learning about. An Immense World delves deeper, exploring the senses of animals we might not even consider. Did you know that a crocodile’s scaly face is as sensitive as the fingertips of a lover? Or that even simple scallops have complex vision? Yong’s writing is not only informative, but also humorous and engaging, making it easy to absorb all of the fascinating facts he has to offer.

The book not only focuses on the animal kingdom, but also on the plant world. Yong shows us how plants communicate with one another through inaudible songs of courting bugs, and the hidden beauties that lay undetected in the natural world.

An Immense World is a true testament to the power of discovery. Yong’s passion for uncovering the unknown is palpable on every page, and it’s infectious. The stories of pivotal discoveries in the field are captivating, and you can’t help but look ahead at the many mysteries that remain unsolved.

The writing style is perfect for those who may not have an extensive background in science. It’s easy to understand and filled with anecdotes that make the material come alive. Yong is both informative and entertaining, keeping the mood light while still providing a wealth of knowledge.

One of the many highlights of the book is its ability to spark curiosity. Yong challenges us to think beyond our own senses and explore the world around us through a different lens. It’s a thrilling experience that’s sure to fill you with wonder, and even make you rethink the way you perceive the world.

Overall, An Immense World is a delightful read that’s perfect for anyone who loves science, nature, or simply exploring beyond the norm. Yong delivers an engaging and entertaining narrative that’s sure to inspire everyone to see the world in a whole new way. So, pack your bags and get ready for the adventure of a lifetime. As Marcel Proust once said, “the only true voyage… is not to visit strange lands, but to possess other eyes.”
