West with the Night

The Alpine Book club reviewed West with the Night by Beryl Markham on Thursday. It was an interesting story about a woman bush pilot in Africa in the 30's. She also was the first woman to fly across the Atlantic solo from east to west. I was glad I read the story, but didn't enjoy the writing style. It felt uneven and verbose at times. Metaphors stacked upon metaphors! It was, however, a great discussion led by Gina. I keep forgetting to get a group picture, but Maureen is good-natured to have her picture taken with me after I drop her off at home!
