Playing with a Lion’s Testicles? Really?

22 Mar

Another actual book that I had to look up on Amazon out of curiosity. Playing with a lion’s testicles is an African saying that means to take foolhardy chances.

 

Description from Amazon (sounds like a good read): 

Melissa, an exhausted executive from the city seeks meaning and purpose from her work, and volunteers for a Big Five conservation project in South Africa. Her boss, an over-zealous ranger, nicknamed the Drill Sergeant, has no patience for city folk, especially if they’re women, and tries to send her packing on day one. But Melissa stands her ground with grit and determination, however shaky it may be.

Conflict soon sets the pace with a cast filled with predatory cats, violent elephants, and an on-going battle of wits with the Drill Sergeant. Even Mother Nature pounds the reserve with the worst storm in a century. But the most enduring and profound conflict is the internal battle going on within Melissa, as she tries to come to terms with the guilt surrounding her mother’s death. When death grips the game reserve, it is the very animals Melissa has come to save that end up saving her.

For the reader who has ever dreamed of going to Africa or knows the pain of loss and guilt, LEARNING TO PLAY WITH A LION’S TESTICLES will fill your soul.

Eating People is Wrong

This is an actual book. I looked it up on Amazon which doesn’t have a description of what it is about. Thankfully, Goodreads explains and it’s not as bad as you might think: “Insanely funny depiction of members of the English department at a provincial English university.” In fact, it sounds like a book I’d enjoy.

Neil Gaiman reads Green Eggs and Ham

I used to love reading this book to my son but Neil Gaiman does a much better job than I did.
