Presenting Charles Darwin's life in a smart and entertaining graphic novel, Darwin: A Graphic Biography attempts to not only educate the reader about Darwin but also the scientific world of the 1800s. The graphic medium is ideal for recreating a very specific time frame, succeeding in placing the reader right next to a young Darwin on a "beetling" expedition. With specimens in both hands, and anxious to get another, Darwin ends up stuffing the third beetle into his mouth. The ups, downs, and near-misses of Darwin's youth are portrayed honestly. Darwin wasn't somehow predestined to greatness. He was curious, patient, and meticulous. He persevered.
