Recensioner

I have read and loved Anthony's works but unfortunately this one didn't hit the same as the likes of The Elephant Whisperer. Don't get me wrong, it was still enjoyable, but it didn't quite have that same sense of closeness, warmth and intimacy. I wonder how much of this has to do with the setting, much of which occurs in a more hostile environment than the love and tranquillity he feels in his home.

The contents were important though! The politics of conservation are so much more complicated than most people realise. This also provides a unique insight into how groups like the Lord's Resistance Army impact conservation efforts. Unless you are specifically interested in the events of this book you may benefit from reading The Elephant Whisperer and/or Babylon's Ark first since he does refer to the events of both of these books and The Elephant Whisperer provides more context for his life in Thula Thula. It's definitely not required though if these books don't appeal to you or if you don't have access to them.… (mer)

This is a wonderful book not very well written. The story is so remarkable and compelling that it transcends the so-so writing. But Anthony isn't a writer -- he's a conservationist who owns a game reserve in South Africa and he can be excused because what he gives us is as true as it is beautiful, and for that reason I recommend the book to everyone -- animal-lover or not. I finished the book at 2 am and when I woke up this morning I was thinking of Mnumzane. Read it and find out why.

A few years ago I hadn’t understood why everyone had been so obsessed with dolphins, then I read [b:The Day of the Dolphin|94499|The Day of the Dolphin|Robert Merle|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1213184014l/94499._SY75_.jpg|91103]. By the time I had a chance to meet and touch a dolphin, I was deeply moved and humbled by the encounter.

This book was recommended to me by a few readers and has great ratings on Hungarian goodreads, but I was still a bit wary because I had my phase of animal mania in primary school and don’t consider myself an animal enthusiast now, though I do like them (the animals). This time, I didn’t understand why everyone was so obsessed with elephants. And then I have read The Elephant Whisperer. I honestly don’t remember the last time a book touched my heart so deeply. It is very well written, extremely exciting, powerful and emotional. A work of fiction couldn’t have been more engaging.

Régebben nem értettem, miért van úgy oda mindenki a delfinekért, aztán elolvastam az Állati elméket Robert Merle-től. Most nem értettem, mi olyan nagy szám az elefántokban, aztán elolvastam ezt a könyvet. Előtte tartottam tőle, hogy csak igazi állatimádóknak való (simán kedvelőknek nem). Szerencsére nem így van. Nem is tudom, mikor érintett meg könyv ennyire. Közben hihetetlenül izgalmas is volt. Egyszerre adta vissza a hitem az emberekben, és fordította figyelmem a környezetemben élő mindenféle lények felé. Az ember- és állatszereplők is sokáig velem fognak még maradni, azt hiszem.
