    1. L AFRICA SENZA KAREN Lasciamo perdere La mia Africa, o noi che entriamo in queste pagine siamo in ben altro territorio.Vero, siamo sempre nella serie l Africa vista dai bianchi , ma anche nel filone inviati di guerra E, soprattutto, siamo davanti a ben altra altezza, senza le meravigliose vertigini del capolavoro della Blixen.La mia AfricaIl personaggio della muzungu protagonista piuttosto irritante e insopportabile come si vedr meglio nel seguito ambientato in New Mexico, Fine estate giornalist [...]


    2. so, this one s getting a little better it s a first novel by a former journalist who reported from Africa not surprisingly, the book written in first person is about a journalist reporting from Africa to which i say, sighyway, the writing is just ok ms santoro tries too hard sometimes, and the strain of it shows up in phrases like this As if on cue, the women started singing and a low melody of almost intolerable sweetness rose to the highest corners of the room It rose above the dancing flames, [...]


    3. Expected a bit from the book, but it takes a look at Africa and it s fight against AIDS and what these people have to go through compared to the Western world It shows the courage and determination of one African woman to make changes in her country.



    4. This is our book club read for March It wasn t a compelling read The characters weren t engaging to me althought the issues discussed in the book were important and heartbreaking.


    5. This story was just not for me All the misery and depression is not a place I m in nor a place I care to visit at this moment.


    6. This book was recommended by a friend who lives in Africa I really enjoyed reading it There are some great characters The main character is pretty problematic, and I could see how that could be an issue for some readers, but I really liked the fact that she was messed up, and that her actions didn t always follow from rational thought She is a foreign war correspondent, and the sense I got from the book is that you have to be crazy to do that kind of work The people she works with are intense an [...]


    7. What a great book I really enjoyed it It is very raw hence so powerful The main character is totally fucked up yet you can t help liking her or at least being intrigued by her The images are beautiful, stripped of any pretense just like the main character It definitely grabs you and leaves you thinking.


    8. Enjoyable one of those books where you wonder if its semi autobiographical A story of a female journalist s self destructive tendencies and how an unexpected connection draws her into the fight against AIDs


    9. Not a fan Main character really unsympathetic Narrative doesn t pick up until the middle Too bad, because the premise of the story is good, and the characters have potential.





    10. Loved this book Great love and self story of a women s life and thought provoking learning about Africa and other lives Gives one much to think about and nice writing.


    11. I really liked this book complex characters with lots of issues trying to sort them thru reporting on the struggles of others easy read.
