West with Night

by Cole on Sep 1, 2011

Beryl Markham's book is one of the three best books I've ever read. I purchase it as a gift for special people. Markham herself may have been a seriously flawed individual, but she was a writer without peer. Like Harper Lee, another great female writer, Markham realized she had produced her best work in her first attempt and produced no other major literary project. Treat yourself to one of the best books ever written.

Shelley C

One of the best books ever

by Shelley C on Jun 26, 2010

The first chapter is a touch slow, but the rest of the book is incredible. I have purchased this book at lest 9 times because I'll lend it out and it's never returned. Fascinating stories, beautifully told. The syntax is marvelous. There may be doubt as to who actually wrote the words, but that doesn't matter. What does matter is that it's one of the best -- if not THE best -- book you'll ever read.


Well Written, Dreamy Memoir

by skyprincess on Sep 13, 2008

Beryl Markham lived in the 'Out-of-Africa' era and was loosely portrayed in the movie as the character 'Felicity.' She writes of a still unsettled Africa, Karen Blixen, Denis Finch Hatton and other characters portrayed in 'Out of Africa'. She writes wonderfully well (praised by Hemmingway) of a time when Africa was still untamed and flying was extremely dangerous. An amazing biography, this book is perfect for a book club or a rainy weekend.
