7 out of 10

The story of Martin Pearce, who in 1899 nearly dies in Africa and is rescued by a local man and brought to stay with his family. Read for Tanzania for the Olympic Challenge then passed on to my mum before I registered it.

I like this author and enjoyed this.

On its way to Finland to a Geographical Challenge participant.

Finally got around to reading this, sorry for taking so long!

I ended up really enjoying this book even though I wasn't sure at first. I didn't really connect with the characters in the first part of the book, but the second part got me hooked well and truly. I love the way Gurnah writes: beautifully crafted prose and a delicate, silent (if you can say that of writing), melancholy style. Recommended reading!
