What are YOU reading?
West with the Night by Beryl Markham
I started this book back in October at the recommendation of a friend who thought I would enjoy it because of my experiences in aviation and Africa. I tried to like the book, I really did, but I found the first 3/4 of it to be tedious and unnecessarily wordy. On the upside, I enjoyed learning about Beryl Markham (whom I had never heard of prior to this book), and I certainly admired her fortitude as she struck out in two fields (horse training and aviation) that had previously been dominated by men. In summary: don't toss the book based on my experience. My friend (who hasn't worked in aviation or Africa) loved the book, so try it for yourself and see what you think!
