Recent Comments "Beyond Mombasa"

I enjoyed this latest book by Frank Coates.It covered the building of the railway from Mombasa to Lake Victoria Africa.It was base don a true story of the trials,tribulations and huge effort it took to build the railway and I learned a lot about railway building.Quite a nice story about the main characters Ronald and Florence(recently married) and their experiences in the wilds of Africa.The story ends in such a way another could easily follow on.It was an interesting read that I enjoyed

1890's Kenya and the construction of the Mombasa to Lake Victoria rail line provide the backdrop to this story of man pitted against nature, others and himself. Based on true events and people. A good read.

I did enjoy this book. It is at times a drag, the story gets stagnant and smelly, just like the dried up lakes in the Tsavo.

Interesting book backgrounding the construction of the Kenyan railway.
