Hemingway's account of a Kudu hunting safari in Africa between the wars is not one of his better-known works. But his ability to let the reader experience events through Hemingway's own senses is as strong as ever. This is a mesmerising story. I found the narration a little brisk for my liking, and slowed it down with the iPod software.

The story is excellent, vivid and graphic with a wonderful flow. Josh Lucas could have done half a day worth of research into basic swahili and could have saved his performance from the abomination that he instead produced. How was this recording released without editors? "Mem-sa-heeb"!? Shame.
