So I guess everyone's responsible for their own entertainment on this one.
But I'll leave you with some interesting links at least.
- Tired of the Origin's Victorian English? Read in in another language! Esperanto German French Spanish
- How about the Origin as a graphic novel?
- "Almost Like a Whale"/"Darwin's Ghost" This book, written by noted science popularizer Steve Jones, is an attempt to follow the structure of Darwin's Origin, but making adjustments to incorporate modern knowledge. While I'm a fan of the history of science and the value of primary sources, I understand that a lot of the difficulty in reading Darwin (besides his verbose Victorianisms) is that biology was a very different field in Darwin's day, both in terminology and outlook. Jones ably deals with this.
