Brilliant first half....,
This review is from: The Man-eaters of Tsavo (Paperback)
After watching the film 'The Ghost and the Darkness' I decided to purchase the true story account of the man who actually managed to kill the maneaters.
The book started off quite well and goes into quite some detail regarding the area and methods used in order to trap the Lions. Anyone reading the book should also be aware of the times the book was written in. Expect non pc descriptions of natives and reports of the hunting of wild animals.
The reason I only awarded the book 3 stars was that only half the book actually dealt with the Lions, the rest just detailed Patterson's time in africa leading up to World War 1. A few nice stories if you care about it - I don't.
