Sintesi dell'editore

Angus and Hugh MacNaughton are brothers. They dislike each other...a lot.

They have loathed each other since Hugh bit Angus at a family picnic many years ago. In a last-ditch attempt to forge a brotherly bond between the two, Mr. and Mrs. MacNaughton secure them jobs at an exclusive five-star game lodge. They manage to convince (bribe in the case of Angus) the siblings to work at Sasekile Private Game Lodge for a year.

A Year in the Wild tells the uproarious, cringeworthy, and hilarious tales of Angus and Hugh in the form of weekly emails to their sister Julia. Their experiences include encounters with guests, animals, female staff, and often a mixture of these.

Combine an eclectic mix of rich, overdemanding and adulterous guests and a dash of crazy bush lodge staff including two jealous brothers (one a bitterly sarcastic game ranger and the other an overeager lodge manager), and throw in the beauty of the African bushveld. Shake well. Conflict and disaster are inevitable.

Enthralling from start to finish

absolutely loved every second of it. the character development was phenomenal and I could really imagine every scene. the way it was written made it seem to be a non-fictional title especially as the Angus character seems a bit like James himself

Sarcasm at its best

I loved listening to James narrate his book. It’s quite like listening to him on wild earth. The story itself, is quite endearing, funny and sad. A story of growing up, finding oneself, brotherly admiration and of course the wild life (this being nostalgic for me)

Enjoyable beach read

Read this as a summer beach read. Had me in stitches at times and in tears at others. Having done some safaris it was very easy to follow and to relate to. Loved the South African accent and tones of the author as it lent even more reality to the experience.

Great Entertainment

A rollicking good story. I’m sure the cameos, incidents, and descriptions have a great deal of truth and experience in them! It’s made even better by having the slightly droll tones of the author reading the characters.
