A 4.25 star review at scatteredthoughtsandrougewords.
With a zoologist, Eric Phillips, as one half of the main couple, I loved the realistic way his life and work with the elephants was portrayed. Dirty, all consuming, and soul satisfying…the readers understands through the many passages what it must be like to have that deep connection with another species.
All good characters, all people the reader will want to spend time with.
Tyaan is a character that will draw conflicted feelings among the readers. I thought his was a character grounded in the reality of the changing times in South Africa...Got it, you understand him even if you don’t like his actions, it makes him human.
While I was reading it, I was hooked on the elephants, Eric and Tyaan’s attraction for each other and strained journey towards a relationship.
This is a long book yet most of the time I spent reading it flew by. And I could easily book a flight back to this universe.
...this story is so lush, so vibrant in feeling and scope that I am still so very much in love with Theory Unproven weeks later.
I recommend this story for all who love romance, foreign lands and a landscape of adventure where the search for love can be rough, affectionate, and hard won.
