5.0 out of 5 stars A highly entertaining and amusing read, 14 July 2014
This review is from: Beating Around the Bush: A personal journey from an office desk to the African bush. (Kindle Edition)
Fearghal's compelling recounts of close shaves, hair raising experiences and good times in South Africa are nicely punctuated by stories of the people he meets - but with a difference. Fearghal tells it like it is - there's no holding back on his contempt for some of the more incendiary characters, making for a highly entertaining and amusing read!

This review is from: Beating Around the Bush: A personal journey from an office desk to the African bush. (Kindle Edition)
Loved the book - really gave an interesting and insightful look into a different world of jobbing and traveling. Very well written, funny, thoughtful but keeping a good pace throughout, lending to the reader not wanting to put it down.

A great read from a great storyteller.

some spelling mistakes were annoying and unnecessary. He missed many things on his travels and I found his final impression of the country somewhat disappointing. I enjoyed the read because I know the country well. As a first attempt at writing a novel it was ok.
