Book Review: Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight

Don't Let's Go to the Dogs TonightDon't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight by Alexandra Fuller
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I'm a sucker for biographies, documentaries and touring people's homes. All are like getting let in on a secret. We each walk around this world with our complex stories and histories that hide below the surface. I always feel special and fortunate to be in on the secret, to have the opportunity to dig deeper and hear those stories. Alexandra Fuller gives us that with her book here. There are parts that will make you cringe, laugh, cry and wonder why. Sound familiar? Even those of us that haven't lived the wild adventure life in sub-saharan Africa, we know the feelings the roller coaster of life evokes.

If you are interested in knowing a different world of time and place, pick up a copy of Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight. I think you will enjoy the ride.

On a personal level, I thought this was an excellent read because it transported me to a region of the world I know well today. I know many folks who lived and grew up in Rodesia much like Alexandra, so on a personal level it was fascinating to get a glimpse into what one of their counterparts experienced and helped bring to life some of the stories these friends have told me.
