    Although I ve read quite a few books from South Africa, most of them have been written in English I ve read nearly everything J.M Coetzee wrote before he migrated to Australia some by Nadine Gordimer and Gillian Slovo the Martha Quest books by Doris Lessing Cry the Beloved Country by Alan Paton, and in recent years I ve tried to keep up with the work of Damon Galgut because I find his books intriguing.Shortlisted for the 2013 Independent Foreign Fiction Prize, Bundu by Chris Barnard is one of th [...]

    An interesting read, although a translation A book full of strange characters Everyone is involved in their own world and that which makes them cope, or do they We sometimes also regard that which gives someone else satisfaction, as irrelevant, only because we don t necessarily understand it or it doesn t fit into our scheme of things.

    I enjoyed this book even though I did not really know in the beginning what to think about it It s not clear to me if that is because I did not know the author or anything about the country and culture it was written in Probably There were also quite a few expressions which I had to look up because I could not make any sense of them What kept me reading was the woman the main character fell in love with I think it is mainly a love story even though it is described as a hunger disaster and how th [...]

    This book could ve gone in several different directions It avoids being preachy but it makes its points well enough What I particularly liked was the ending Circumstances have galvanised these disparate individuals, created a necessary bond but once the crisis is over their involvement in it at any rate they no longer have sufficient reason to cohere and drift apart far too easily You would think what they ve been through was a life changing experience but perhaps these people s lives had alread [...]

    Bundu is a beautifully written novel by award winning Afrikaans author, Chris Barnard At times frustrating, appalling, heart breaking and wonderful, Bundu exposes a side of Africa that few ever see In the midst of it all, goodness rises from this motley crew of heroes and a romance builds as life boils down to its simplest forms Reviewed for TripFiction, the full text can be found here tripfiction review bea

    The Book
    Once I started reading, I didn t want to stop I loved the solitude of the African wilderness and the assortment of people who found themselves there, and carved out some kind of life for themselves totally outside of most society The starving famine refugees were almost an aside, something belonging to another world.

    I expected much the story line was good but the writer failed to draw me into the story I m not sure if it was his writing or a problem of translation but i was not captivated once and really wanted to feel like i was with the characters in the book experiencing and seeing the hardship.
