I Dreamed of Africa (movie tie-in) by Kuki Gallmann

At the age of twenty-five, Kuki Gallman, divorced and badly injured in a devastating car accident, left Italy to convalesce in Africa with the man who would become her second husband. Enchanted by the land, they established a vast ranch on the Laikipia plateau in Kenya. But Africa's splendor came with a price. Filled with pain and joy, beauty and drama, Gallman's haunting memoir "captures perfectly the magic of Kenya" (The New York TImes Book Review).

Beautifully written, with vivid sharing of devastating tragedies and breath-taking beauty while living in Kenya in the 1970-80's. Having lived in Africa, and visited East Africa as a child in the late '60's, I can relate to, and appreciate, her history and vision.

I read this book years ago, lent it to a friend and never saw it again. But what a book! Kuki Gallman is a true herione. What other woman would give up a comfortable life and go traipsing half-way around the world to start over (literally from stratch!) in Africa, where Nature dictates your life and you're at Her mercy? Not me! But she did. And this is her amazing story.

My favourite book. For Kuki to go to such a comfortable lifestyle to the hard african life inspired me. The sadness of it also gives it more validilty if she had just lived as she had come. But she has lost so much by being there she almost deserves intruding on Africa and it's people

Beautifully written. Emotionally draining, but well worth the trip!

Many of the movie critics rated the movie a B or B-, which I don't understand. The critics said the movie contained too much grief for a single film. I guess some movie critics can't handle true stories. True life is much more interesting than fiction and true to life is what makes this story so enthralling.

It was a heart warming story and its one of the things where the book is better than the movie. And it is so sad that it makes it good. I love it and going to get the movie when it comes out and also I'm going to save the book for a long time.
