    An interesting collection of anecdotes from Africa in the early 1900s It is better than a history book because you get to learn about it from the words of someone who lived it The colonialism approach of the time that is seen in the writing can be construed as imperialistic and at times racially inappropriate However I would say that the author is writing what she knows at the time and never gets malicious to or speaks down about anyone in her story even if there are undertones t

    SoWell introductionI was doing a repair to the ceiling when from that elevated position I noticed this slim volume attempting to hide from my hawk like vision but too late for I swooped down and caught in in my talons and read it tucked up in my nest I found it beguiling lyrical full of longing it also reminded me of the Orwell story Shooting An Elephant I let the book settle over several nights in an attempt to digest it but perhaps after six months or so it might have worked its wa

    There is something strangely determinate and fatal about a single shot in the night It is as if someone had cried a message to you in one word and would not repeat it I stood for some time wondering what it had meant Nobody could aim at anything at this hour and to scare away something a person would fire two shots or There is some truly beautiful writing in this book When describing the land and the wildlife of Africa Dinesen ie Karen Blixen truly shines as a writer and I can only bel

    Karen Blixen alias Isak Dinesen 1885 1962 has the ability to transport you to the early 20th century Africa The Africa when there were still herds of zebras and elephants suddenly appearing in the clearing while you are planting or harvesting acres and acres of coffee As I was leafing the pages of this book I was doing the inhale exhale that my wife normally tells me to do whenever we are spending a weekend in a resort far from the polluted Manila Inhale exhale Chance to put fresh air into y

    Out of Africa was first published in 1937 after the author's return to Denmark Shadows on the Grass consists of four essays The first three were written in the 1950s and the last titled 'Echoes from the Hills' was written in the 60s They just add a few details about events and characters mentioned in the original bookThe movie Out of Africa starring Robert Redford and Meryl Streep was produced and directed by Sydney Pollack It was based not only on Blixen's Out of Africa but also Judith Thurma

    I start with the famous paragraph If I know a song of Africa of the giraffe and the African new moon lying on her back of the plows in the fields and the sweaty faces of the coffee pickers does Africa know a song of me? Will the air over the plain uiver with a color that I have had on or the children invent a game in which my name is or the full moon throw a shadow over the gravel of the drive that was like me or will the eagles of the Ngong Hills look out for me?I almost gasped when I read this the

    I cried four times while reading this book For the beauty of the writing fireflies the sentiment the zoo animals lulu and for gratitude that this woman existed and wrote these words down It's my favorite type of writing descriptive and evocative She is able to make me feel like I am there with her I think she noticed and felt so much that she had to be a writer I also admire her and how she lived her life This was a strong woman who seemed to keep a sense of innocence that allowed her to feel and see th

    “Between the river in the mellow English landscape and the African mountain ridge ran the path of this life The bowstring was released on the bridge at Eton the arrow described its orbit and hit the obelisk in the Ngong Hills” ― Karen Blixen Out of Africa This is a group read I participated in and I am certain that I will not be able to do it enough honor with my review in attempting to convey this rich lyrical and beautiful memoir of Karen Blixen’s years she spent running a coffee plantation in Br

    This was a beautiful book I began reading it three years ago and set it aside in favor of lighter literature but I resumed it this winter and found that the rich unhurried prose soothed my spirits and carried me away Reminiscent of Richard Llewllyn's How Green Was My Valley OOA is a work of love a sensitive soul's lyrical tribute to a beloved landscape The passages are often long and I found I needed stamina than I'm used to in order to keep up with Dinesen's meandering's of mind and memory but almost each tre
