Compelling...a story of passion...and a movingly poetic tribute to a lost land (The Times)
From the moment Karen Blixen arrived in Kenya in 1914 to manage a coffee plantation, her heart belonged to Africa. Drawn to the intense colours and ravishing landscapes, Karen Blixen spent her happiest years on the farm and her experiences and friendships with the people around her are vividly recalled in these memoirs. Out of Africa is the story of a remarkable and unconventional woman and of a way of life that has vanished for ever.

An interesting book that allows the reader to see the inside an African Tribe
on 21 November 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
After obtaining the decade old movie, "Out of Africa" and watching it at least three times, I simply had to read something that this author had written and was delighted to discover that she had written a book with the same title as the movie. While the only mention of her marriage to Baron Bror Blixen was on the very last page of this book, written in a simple paragraph. I have yet to read a book, then see the film based on the same, and be able to say the movie is better than the book. The book gives more personal details and always provides more information. I enjoyed both but must once again declare that the book is better!

This book was an eye-opening retrospective of life in Africa during the colonial period. As a memoir, it depicted the relationships between native cultures and British aristocracy, as experienced by a Danish woman and farm owner. There are many detailed descriptions of the people and landscapes of British East Africa, now Kenya, as well as personal relationships with other residents there. This is a fascinating story, beautifully told.

One of my all-time favorites. If you live African adventures, you'll love Dinesen's real-life account of life on a coffee farm. Beautiful.
