I Slept in Africa, and Other Stories based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
When I was only half way thru this book I asked myself, 'Where can I get more of this guys books?' I loved the sensation that I was right there. I wanted to cry when he did, I laughed out loud along with him and his friends and I shared his adventure. TOO MUCH!!! I have read several of his stories over and over and each time he brings out the same emotions. He writes about youth, family, animals, love, pain, adventure and hope... what else is there? Great read.
Gary Faules' essays of his childhood, the ups and downs, hope and dreams of life on a small coastal Oregon farm, and of Africa are simply written. The title is misleading, but he did sleep in Africa. This makes for a great read which bring thoughts of your own childhood and memories to life. His writing style is easy to read from page one, allowing for breaks along the way. You giggle, laugh and cry right along with his family of charactors. It was over before I knew it and left me wanting more. Let's all hope that writer, Gary Faules, produces many more books of stories from the heart! Don't miss the surprise in the middle!
