    Kindle Out of AfricaShadows on the Grass Epub ✓ ´ posthd.pro africashadows book, grass epub, Out of kindle, AfricaShadows on epub, of AfricaShadows on book, Out of AfricaShadows on the Grass Kindle 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 believe that it is this aspect of her book that resonates with so many who rate this book Out of Africa highly I mean the film of the same title is not really based on and has little to do with this book so clearly readers must see something else in the book that appeals to them and I'm guessing it is the lyrical description of the African landscape If the book contained itself to her impressions of the land I would have loved this book too Unfortunately
