Read from November 24 to 27, 2011 , read count: 1

This was a memoir I expected a lot more out of. Dinesen's writing is really good, but her thoughts are so fragmented here, that it was difficult to get a handle on things. It seemed as though her love for Kenya was so overwhelming that she could not think to frame her impressions coherently for any reader who is by virtue of his/her ignorance of the experience a third party to it.
