White Mischief

This review is from: White Mischief (Paperback)
I bought this book years ago but it is such a fascinating read I find I re read it from time to time. James Fox has a brilliant gift of bringing each character to life and gives a wonderful account of the people who may or may not have been involved in the murder. Since the publication I have read other accounts : Errol Trzebinski, Juliet Barnes and even managed to read a copy of the one written by Leda Farrant, who maintained that Diana killed Errol. However for some reason I still find "White Mischief" the best book on the subject. Perhaps it is because there still isn't a real sense of closure of the case. When visiting Karen Blixen's house from Nairobi you pass the spot where the murder took place, below the church, and it is still hard to work out which theory is the correct one as to who did the murder. For me this is a timeless book that is well worth the read because it records the lifestyle of a group of people, which in modern terms is almost unbelievable and shocking. Impossible to put down. A great read

Leaving Before the Rains Come
by Alexandra Fuller
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £14.03

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good holiday read, 7 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having read her previous book, Alexandra Fuller did not disappoint and gave a very entertaining account of her life during her marriage and her new life in America. Settling into a new and much easier way of life was a culture shock of course, and the contrast between the life she now leads in the new world compared to the old life she had in Africa is often described with much amusement. I think she is a very good writer with a great deal of imagination and flair. A very good read and I would highly recommend this book. A must for Africa lovers also.

It seems to have calmed my elderly cats as they both had cystitis over Christmas which could only have been stress related with all the different activities and people around
