Mr. Malik has been in love with Rose Mbikwa, who leads the weekly bird watching expedition, for a long time. But it isn’t until an old school mate shows up and suggests a contest to win her hand that he ends up doing anything about it. The characters in this slim book, chock full of details about the birds of Nairobi, are wonderfully drawn and the contest lends a dose of suspense. But to me what makes this book a perfect charmer is its humor – not laugh out loud but always subtly present.
