Yes, the book is readable, however the author has painted himself as the greatest savior of the indentured laborers who were treated badly by Patterson, and fined them heavily for petty and insignificant matters. There was no compassion (see details of his exploits in Charles Miller's 'The Lunatic Express'). Patterson's second book 'In the Grip of Nyika' was something else. He took an aristocrat couple out for hunting. The husband was missing when the party returned to Nairobi. The investigation led to a grave in the bush where they found the dead man with a bullet on the back of his head. When the news broke, Patterson slipped away with the dead man's wife (see Hunter by J.A.Hunter)
I ran out and bought 'The Man-Eaters of Tsavo' after watching 'The Ghost and the Darkness' for the 30th or 40th time. I dragged the book back to my lair and ate it alive. Call it indigestion if you like, but I thought the movie was better.
