Parts of this will make you think it was written by P.G. Wodehouse....'Bones' is very much what Bertie Wooster might have been if his parents had put him in the Army. If you are at all interested in archtypes, Commissioner Sanders is the epitome of the 'English Ideal'...silent, sympathetic but at the same time standing for no nonsense. Though there is some racism, it is evident that the 'White' people don't always look either noble or decent by comparison to the 'natives'.

The heroes of the work are a British colonial administrator and his followers in Africa. Naturally the natives are portrayed as ignorant, superstitious, and often rather vicious and stupid, a shining exception being a clever convicted criminal named Bosambo, who quickly becomes chief of a local tribe and Sanders's greatest native ally. (This was the role ironically portrayed by Paul Robeson in the movie Sanders of the River.) If the ideology doesn't altogether throw you off (and it's not hard to have a certian nostalgia for British colonial Africa considering the mess much of Africa has become, and better the Brits than the Belgians), you'll find much to enjoy.
