    " Like the journey itself, the book is a bit of a slog. But if Stanley can stick with it, so can I. "

    " So I didn't finish it. As much as I enjoyed the adventure, I couldn't bear to keep up with the olde English narrative AFTER Stanley found Livingstone! Maybe I'll pick up at a later time just to wrap it all up...but I need a break. "

    " starts boring, lots of useless advice, considering it was written as a guide to the Black Continent in the 1900's, but it gets better towards the middle, so bear with Mr. Stanley...it's an adventure "
