Parasites Like Us- Johnson

Parasites Like Us by Adam Johnson is super funny and amazing since it involves an anthropology professor. To make it even better it is based in South Dakota, which for me makes it more home.

It about Clovis and how one of his grad students is only using Clovis/prehistorical method of living for a whole year for his thesis. Which is amazing if someone really would do this but also funny to read and image yourself killing squirrels on campus to eat and make rope out of.

They find a new “site” and it it just turnes into crazy. But at the end it makes you think.

Johnson did a good job and it was nice to read something anthropology even in novel form for once.  It was a fun read.
