Habitat Man

Worms have more purpose than Tim, and a better love life.

They break waste down into rich fertile soil; Tim just makes the rich richer. Worms copulate for three hours at a time whereas the closest thing Tim has to love is his lesbian friend Jo.

Salvation comes from Jo’s flaky niece Charlotte who asks him three profound questions. Inspired, he sheds his old life to become Habitat Man, giving advice on how to turn gardens into habitats for wildlife. His first client is the lovely Lori. Tim is smitten, but first he has to win round Ethan her teenage son.

Tim loves his new life until he digs up more than he bargained for, something that threatens to bring out all the skeletons in his cupboard.

I like how Baden has created an interesting plot with a great amount of research and knowledge about environmental changes and awareness. The writing style is good with a lot of advice, information and a good mixture of dialogue!

The character development of Habitat Man is good. The characters are relatable and interesting. Tim is a kind and friendly individual who after experiencing a mid-life crisis makes the decision to follow his passion and love for gardening and nature!

I would recommend reading Habitat Man to lovers of Women’s Fiction, as it is a engaging story with a inspiring and insightful look into gardening and the environment. There is drama and whit which fun and lifting!
