But its failure in 1931 caused her to return to Denmark. Baroness Karen Blixen spent 17 years in Africa. Karen began the coffee-farm withher husband, and continued to oversee the farm even after she separated in 1925. Th e farm was an unprofitable venture.

He was a good friend. Denys also had a plane and from timeto time Karen flew with him over Africa. When Karen left Africa she had to saygoodbye to a lot of peoples. E everybody liked her. She was a friendly girl andwhen she was in Denmark she received letters from her friend sin Kenya.
It isnot a book like an other. Karen describes her surroundings -Africa’s people, shepays careful attention to detail. I have chosen this book because I have livedin Africa for 11 years and while I was reading the book I recognised a lot ofthings. I knew what she was talking about. It looked so familiar to me.
And so Iliked the book.Book Reports
