Summary

Mary Brown, our fabulous, full-figured heroine, is off on safari with an old school friend. What could possibly go wrong? Lots of things, it turns out. 

Mary starts off on the wrong foot by turning up dressed in a ribbon-bedecked bonnet, having channeled Meryl Streep from Out of Africa. She falls in lust with a khaki-clad ranger half her age and ends up stuck in a tree wearing nothing but her knickers while sandwiched between two inquisitive baboons. 

It's never dull....

Not great!

The story is disappointing and the narration is worse. What is with the sing-song style? Also the South African accents are awful, unrecognisable. I only know they are supposed to be South Africa due to context.

Why American politics?

I was actually entertained by this book- and then she had to slide in a crack about Donald Trump. An English woman in Africa on safari. I read to get away from stress of politics- this was just thrown in out of nowhere, stupid, and ruined the feel of the book for me. Couldn’t finish.
