With so many good reviews behind this book
on 18 April 2016
Having read many memoirs and particularly those about life in various parts of Africa- this one was very disappointing. With so many good reviews behind this book, I was certain it would be a good read but it was not. While the authors style of writing is certainly very interesting, the story is lost in far too many strange descriptions. It is a lot like modern art- some will look at it and be amazed while others will see nothing more than a haphazard mess. There is a lot of colourful writing but very little substance and story.
