I have never read On the Origin of Species. However, I was glad that some of Darwin’s writing had made the Little Black Classics. These are a part of his notes that he took while on Beagle trying to prove the evolution theory. As such it provides not only biology, but also remarks on exploring and life aboard a ship like the Beagle.
I found this an interesting and surprisingly readable short read. And hopefully, one day I will read On the Origin of Species.
