The White Masai by Corinne Hofmann
The White Masai

CollegeReader, September 5, 2011

I was skeptic at first, knowing this to be a romance novel, and a translation at that. The first few pages were stuffed with a bit too much cheese for my liking. And then the author tries to kiss her Masai warrior and he freaks out. It was then that I realized this book isn't meant to be taken 100% seriously. There is a dose of humor that makes this a light read, good for the weekend. What makes this story worth telling is the details. The story-line itself is incredible and I found myself turning the page eager for more of the specific day-to-day observations about life with a Masai. The romance is cute, but this book is really for readers who want to transport themselves to Africa for the time being.
