5.0 out of 5 stars It is wonderful, 22 Dec. 2006
I am sorry to say that I disagree with all the reviews written about this book. I think it is a marvellous story. It was one of my first ever comic and as a child I found it fascinating. It preaches the true story of colonialism and Africa. However there is absolutely nothing racist about it and I actually believe that thinking this way is a proper insult towards the author who tried to share his experience (Congo was a Belgian Colony)with all the readers. I spent my childhood in Africa myself and sorry to say but the story is very similar to what I grew up in. Hunting wild animals, and seing people "sharing" their own knowledge. This is a dream come true to many and dont forget that at that time things were very different . Comparing it the Nazis is clearly due to boredom or a personnal issue. What next? You liked out of Africa (the movie) you will love this book!
