5.0 out of 5 stars Superb book.
This is one of the best books I have ever read. It is riveting and nearly impossible to put down. I would highly recommend it.

House of Stone is written by Christina Lamb, an English journalist. In the opening passages I wasn't too sure if I trusted this author yet as I thought she was exaggerating (this is the scene where she describes a city's main market...

3.0 out of 5 stars House of Stone
A very sad and tragic story which illustrates how callous human beings can be to one another, only instigated by a selfish and greedy dictator who does not care for his own people. Things could have been so different in Zimbabwe.

This review is from: House of Stone: The True Story of a Family Divided in War-torn Zimbabwe (Paperback)
This book is a very easy read but spoiled by several errors of fact, many of which do not materially affect the story, but definitely reflect the political views of the author. As an example she refers to Nigel Hough's brothers and sisters also losing their farms whereas none of the sisters ever had a farm and even the brother, if he had one at all, only had it for a very short time. It appears to be an attempt to depict white Zimbabweans as all being landowners, which was nowhere near the case.
