Book Club Has February Romance
We read "Out of Africa" by Isak Dinesen, but it wasn't the romance of Karen Blixen like its movie counterpart. Drats! I love that movie adaptation. The book, however, was quite poetic--dealing mainly with her farm in Africa and her experiences with the natives and animals. The movie draws both the poetic bits of her narration along with the biographical bits from other authors. Our book club made good use of the African connection with a special guest who has been on Safari. I'm still not convinced that I would ever want to do that.
