I was interested to read about her life as I had seen the film 'Out of Africa' & had read the life of Denis Finch Hatton. I found this book, although very interesting and well written rather boring in places as the author went into too much detail. Karen Blixen/Isak Dinesen was an extraordinary peron and makes for very interesting reading. The book does not resemble the film very much but obviously the book is very true to life.

Although what is written here is different in many aspects from the film 'Out of Africa' , it is still an important book for any.
Karen Blixen fans and it is good to know the real story. However, there is a lot of comment about her body of literature which would not be of interest to many readers.

Rather pedantic for today's reading public. But I was interested to read more about Karen Blixen.
