Karen Blixen alias Isak Dinesen 1885 1962 has the ability to transport you to the early 20th century Africa The Africa when there were still herds of zebras and elephants suddenly appearing in the clearing while you are planting or harvesting acres and acres of coffee As I was leafing the pages of this book I was doing the inhale exhale that my wife normally tells me to do whenever we are spending a weekend in a resort far from the polluted Manila Inhale exhale Chance to put fresh air into your lungs says she to me and my daughter There go the three chests heaving and puffing air as if our lungs have the power to inhale and store oxygen molecules and only exhale them out when we go back to the cityVery powerful novel Imagine uprooting a brilliant Danish writer and asking her to stay for around 20 years in an enchanted land of Kenya in Africa Blixen and her second cousin Bhor von Blixen Finecke are in love so they go to Africa build themselves a house by the side of Ngong Hills few kilometers from Nairobi Then they buy and till acres and acres of coffee plantation This book is partly memoir true to life partly biography although not narrated chronologically and partly fiction Dinesen made it glamorous compared to what really happened according to Wiki entries Thus it defies being neatly placed into a genre The end result however is astonishing that Truman Capote once said Out of Africa by Isak Dinesen is one of the most beautiful books of the twentieth century Have you seen the 1981 movie starring Meryl Streep and Robert Redford The one that took home many Oscar awards including Best Picture Yes I have It is beautiful isn't it But as always the book is better than the movie True that some of the beautiful beautiful passages of the books were spoken by the characters but nothing can compare to reading actual prose straight from the pen of Isak Dinesen Her words are magical and you can almost feel the leaves of the coffee shrubs feel the rays of the sun penetrating your skin smell the wonderful grassy breeze coming from the hills This book has that uniue ability to make you feel see touch smell and even taste its setting It is really almost like an out of body experienceWonderful

I cried four times while reading this book For the beauty of the writing fireflies the sentiment the zoo animals lulu and for gratitude that this woman existed and wrote these words down It's my favorite type of writing descriptive and evocative She is able to make me feel like I am there with her I think she noticed and felt so much that she had to be a writer I also admire her and how she lived her life This was a strong woman who seemed to keep a sense of innocence that allowed her to feel and see the gentle beauty in everything and everyone that is around us always

An interesting collection of anecdotes from Africa in the early 1900s It is better than a history book because you get to learn about it from the words of someone who lived it The colonialism approach of the time that is seen in the writing can be construed as imperialistic and at times racially inappropriate However I would say that the author is writing what she knows at the time and never gets malicious to or speaks down about anyone in her story even if there are undertones that might be considered inappropriate today In fact I think she does a pretty good job of giving us a glimpse into native life in Africa only one generation removed from no outside influenceAnother thing I did not really see in the book is any hatred between religions or judgement of people because of who they are People of different religions races and social standing all seem to respect each other and give each other a wide berth when necessary ie the Christians come to mourn a person then they leave to allow that person's Muslim friends come in to mourn in their way I did not sense any animosity throughout the story Many of the main characters are Somalis and I kept thinking about all the conflicts there over the past 50 years or so none of that is seen here I would have to look into the background of this story a bit to see when she wrote this but I am wondering if some of her inspiration with World Wars raging was to show an Africa before all of that and all the changes it was heading towardsThis is a must read for history and memoir buffs
