5.0 out of 5 stars Excelent historical account, written in a unique style, 18 Nov 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: The Man-Eaters of Tsavo: The Incredible True Story That Inspired the Motion Picture "the Ghost and the Darkness (Mass Market Paperback)
Patterson's first hand account of his adventures at Tsavo is extremely well written and a facinating book. On the other hand, I found the movie, supposedly based on the book, to be a great disappointment. The book, written in the unique British adventurer style of the times, is excellent. When the reader discovers how much the movie changed, deleted, enhanced and warped the true account, the book becomes even more exciting. The book is written for the reader of Patterson's day, including detailed information on travel means and costs to visit the area of Tsavo. There is also alot of information in the forward and introduction that places his Tsavo adventures in the context of the times and makes Patterson (the REAL Patterson, that is) more lifelike. In general, I found the book facinating and well worth it.
