vanvan, July 8, 2008 (view all comments by vanvan)
my favorite book ever. found it in the "out-of-africa" hype of the 1980's and it really has no equal in its blood-stirring, poetic, while down-to-earth language. every re-reading feels like a first time, and especially the stories involving the ponies and horses of markham's younger days are of a rare breed. comparing it to "out of africa" is like comparing a dust-ridden rocking-horse to an alive and breeding andalousian stallion.
