26th August – The Snows of Kilimanjaro

I read this book twice in succession and I still can’t work out why it’s so absorbing – is it because of the flashbacks to the times that Harry has survived because he knows he’s going to die this time? It’s a mystery to me. I don’t like the way Harry treats Helen or indeed talks to her, but if you know you’re going to pass away, perhaps that skews your judgement or you feel resentful that someone will survive you? I can’t know the answer to that. The plane flight at the end of the book over Kilimanjaro is beautifully done.

I was born in Leicester. I attended school in Yorkshire and University in Liverpool. I have been to 93 countries and territories including The Balkans and Armenia in 2015, France and Slovakia in 2016, and some of the Greek Islands in 2017. My sense of humour is distilled from The Goons, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and Midsomer Murders. I love being creative in my writing and I love writing about travelling. My next books are a travel book about Greece and a novel inspired by Brexit.
