5.0 out of 5 stars The book i go back to on rainy days, December 5, 2003
This review is from: A Story Like the Wind (Paperback)
A Story Like the Wind is an amazing snapshot of africa told through the eyes of francois, a young boy whose world revolves around his dog and the bush. It joins a long line of stories of white men in Africa but is particularly notable for the quality of the writing. The story can occasionally move slowly, weighed down by the beauty of Van Der Posts descriptions, but in general, this is one of those books that you become so deeply immersed in, you never want it to end. A Story Like the Wind is better than A Far Off Place (The sequel, also the title of an aweful movie based on the books), but read both of them if you like the first one. If you're interested in nonfiction, you may also want to investigate Van der Post's other work.
