This review is from: The Wheel of Life: A Life of Safaris and Romance (Hardcover)
I have read about Bunny Allen in the various books about Kenya and thought I would buy his biography. To be honest as an animal lover it is hard to take some of the content which consists of slaughtering animals for the thrill of the kill. However the book has to be viewed within the context of the time when wild animals were just considered entertainment for the people who could afford this kind of safari. Bunny Allen comes over as a romantic figure, partaking in many affairs whilst providing safaris for his rich clients. It is a simply written book and his description of some of his clients are amusing. His brief description of Karen Blixen and her relationship with Dennis is enlightening. I would have liked more about Kenya itself as well as the numerous clients he entertained.
