2.0 out of 5 stars Facsimile edition: unreadable print 7 Aug 2014
Format:Paperback
Note that this edition (ie published by Important Books, not Virago) is a facsimile of, I would guess, the original edition; the print is EXTREMELY small to the extent that it is unreadable. This is not specified in the description of the book.
I hate doing this, as I'm reviewing the edition, not the book itself - which looks very interesting. But anyone thinking of buying this book should know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Writing! 10 Mar 2014
By Ulrich Von Goofenhoff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm on my 3rd reading of this brilliant little gem. Written by a true wordsmith, West with the Night is an education in both the eloquence of the english language and vibrant, imagination awakening storytelling. I've given multiple copies away as gifts, and get excited each time I get the opportunity to sit and read a few pages.

If you require further encouragement, go no further than Hemmingway's letter praising her writing saying:

"Did you read Beryl Markham's book, West with the Night? ...She has written so well, and marvelously well, that I was completely ashamed of myself as a writer. I felt that I was simply a carpenter with words, picking up whatever was furnished on the job and nailing them together and sometimes making an okay pig pen. But this girl, who is to my knowledge very unpleasant and we might even say a high-grade bitch, can write rings around all of us who consider ourselves as writers ... it really is a bloody wonderful book."

5.0 out of 5 stars read by Alexandra O'Karma is the BEST 23 Aug 2006
By Meester Shack - Published on Amazon.com
This is a WONDERFUL story letting us look into the past and growing up in Africa. This one read by A.O'K. is by far the best. You feel as if the author is reading it to you. Get this listen to it, you won't regret it. If are put off by the first chapter describing flying a sick man to civilization, don't be, it's a wonderful listen about a woman who led an incredible life. I only wish this version was on CD or in digital format.

National Geograph names this as one of the top 10 adventure books every written. It is at the top of my all time favorite list. She led an amazing life and tells about the best of it in these pages. Anyone likes a good read would do them self a favor by reading.First written in 1938 and still in print, need I say more....LB

5.0 out of 5 stars West With The Night by Beryl Markham, an autobiography 11 Dec 2012
By James A. Kennedy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great read. Author writes so beautifully, praised by Ernest Hemingway and lived an interesting life. She grew up in Kenya, raised race horses and was a pioneer in flying in Africa. If you liked Out of Africa, you will love this autobiography.
