This book is brilliant - compulsory reading. Especially if one lives (or has lived) in Africa or the Colonies. Sensitively narrated and wonderfully written.

A compelling story, beautifully narrated. Written for the youth but it will be enjoyed by adults as well (I am ancient!)

I am thoroughly enjoying Pam Ayers, but I do, so that's why I got this book! It is well-presented and fits perfectly with brief idle moments.

I found this book disappointing. The content is factual, compelling and deserves to be widely shared. However, I think the story was rather naively described and the narrator made it sound like a dirge. A pity.

Great novel

I loved this book, subject matter, characters and descriptions. Finely wrought. Also an imaginative, sensitive narrator. I was totally absorbed.

Struggling to finish. Rather outdated. An annoying accent. But a typical Bryson travelogue. Some will enjoy.
