5.0 von 5 Sternen A literary gem, 17. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This book changed my life and because of it Dinesen has become a major influence in my writing. She was an amazing woman living in an amazing time and she managed not only to capture her own voice in text, but also the voice of an entire generation. Her intelligence and strong yet frail personality is very subtle in her narration, but at the same time very apparent. I highly recomend this book not only for its literary merits but also for its beautiful setting, which was made more beautiful after benn filtered through Dinesen's eyes.
If you would like to continue to read about Dinesen and her time period I would also reccomend:
West With the Night (Beryl Markham) Out of Isak Dinesen in Africa EXCELLENT BOOK Straight on Till Morning (Mary S. Lovell)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Magical prose that will break your heart., 8. Januar 1998
Von Ein Kunde
It's difficult to find truly magical prose in today's publications. Recently, I was hungry for some poetic fiction and pulled this volume from my bookshelf. I'm so glad I did.
Karen Blixen writes with true insight and an artist's approach about her beloved farm in Africa. There's a paragraph where she wonders if Africa knows of her like she knows of Africa. What other author has ever asked that question? She also details the migration of buffalo, elephant and antelope with such majesty that the mind's eye can almost feel the ground move under their hooves.
If you're looking for a satisfying story that will entertain you for many nights, read "Out of Africa." You will not be disappointed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Blixen reminds us of what a true storyteller is., 25. September 1998
Von Ein Kunde
The movie kind of left me feeling indifferent, however, the book, so well written, far surpasses it. If you miss the skilled, thoughtful, clever, intuitive way Blixen describes what might be seen as an everyday event by the casual observer, you simply miss the gift of this work. She communicates in such a way that you are certain you have felt that way once or shared those identical feelings. I am reading this book again for the second time and it has a peculiar way of transporting me out of my current curcumstances into the world of South East Africa in the early 1900's. I am sure that when I finish it, I will feel like I did the first time, as if I was losing a close friend.

5.0 von 5 Sternen "I will not leave thee..., 14. Juni 2000
Von 
R. D. Chattin (York, PA) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
...except thou bless me." Karen Blixen's (aka, Isak Dinesen) command of the English language is incomparable. At times, while reading this book, I had to remind myself that I was reading prose and not poetry, though in this particular instance, the distinction matters not, for they are one in the same. If you're searching for a book that will communicate directly with your soul (and you're sick of Chicken Soup), then place this one at the top of your list. A true literary classic in every sense of the term and merits a preferential spot on everyone's library shelf.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An incredible, classic account of bygone Kenya, 9. April 1999
Von

Those who loved this book as I do should also read Beryl Markham's alleged autobiography [actually a biography] "West with the Night", and also "The Lives of Beryl Markham" by Errol Trzebinski [Norton]. And, if you can find it, "Silence will Speak: A study of the life of Denys Finch Hatton and his relationship with Karen Blixen", also by Trzebinski. Out of print and hard to find, but worth reading. PS: needless to say, "Letters from Africa" and a couple of the good biographies of Dinesen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Living breathing prose, 9. Mai 2000
If your not interested in Baroness Blixen or Africa, still read this one. Read for the beautiful descriptive prose of Isak Dinesen. She seems to want us to experience the prose, just as she experienced life on a coffee farm in the Ngong hill country of Africa. There is a grace about Baroness Blixen that is difficult to describe. One really doesn't know where the grace comes from, yet it wafts up out of the prose, greeting us as an esteemed friend, and inviting us to stay awhile on the Ngong hills.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Woman's Journey Toward Self, 29. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Karen Blixen says in this beautiful book, "I will not let thee go unless thou bless me." Her farm in Africa yielded both miracles and suffering. This book reveals Karen Blixen's Sunday self--gracious and self-deprecating, enlightened and insightful. She faces struggles we know: career challenges, marital conflicts, complicated loves, and unfulfilled desires. She is one of us. Linda Donelson, author of "Out of Isak Dinesen: Karen Blixen's untold story"

5.0 von 5 Sternen Gorgeous, 7. Juli 1998
Von Ein Kunde
If any of you have ever wanted to visit Africa and know you will never have the opportunity, read this book. It is a narrative without artifice, written in gorgeous prose and with extreme tenderness. Karen Blixen's love affair with Africa will make you long to roam the Masai reserves and to hear the cry of the eagles and the roar of the lions. This book will stay in your heart long after it ends.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Karen and Denys, 13. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Well, I certainly knew that Denys was spending a whole lot of time at Karen's house, but I seemed to have somehow missed that they were having an affair. I guess I'll just have to read the book again. I thought it was really funny how Karen described Denys as a cat; how he would make himself comfortable anywhere, just like a cat.

Von 
ANDREA (Mexico City, Mexico) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
I'm an avid reader, and this is my favorite book, I strongly recomend it. The writing is beautiful and magical, the description of the places and the people are so good that you can imagine being in the same room with Fitch-Hatton and Barckley.
