Reviews of Dark Star Safari: Overland from Cairo to Cape Town

Overall customer rating: 4.000
michaelt

great with small defects

by michaelt on Jan 17, 2008

theroux's insights and prose are terriffic...great book He rather conveniently ignores the fact that he was indeed already a pulitzer prize winner and acknowledged literary star when he endures this trek. thus, he is able to avail himself of some benefits that are lightly glided over.
