"The story moves in clear, quiet prose from the author's early African days to the selling and breaking-up of her farm eight years later; its unpretentiousness and sense are particularly impressive and never is there any falling back upon obvious bring-'em-back-alive anecdotes to awe the foreign reader."

Reviewer: Elizabeth Bishop

"I think Isak Dinesen never wrote anything to compare with OUT OF AFRICA."

"This writing is without redundancies, bared to its lines of strength and beauty....[T]here is no sentimentality, no elaboration."

"The outstanding quality of this book is charm: its delightful jacket, in green tapestry, of African beasts and birds, clothes a body of careful pleasant writing, abounding in the mot juste, and a soul of sympathy, insight, and unusual sensibility."

"Here is something very different from most of the books written about Kenya. The direct unaffected style of the narrative and the strength and integrity of feeling in which it has its source make it a book of unusual quality."
