    >When South African conservationist Lawrence Anthony was asked to accept a herd of "rogue" wild elephants on his Thula Thula game reserve in Zululand, his common sense told him to refuse. But he was the herd's last chance of survival: they would be killed if he wouldn't take them. In order to save their lives, Anthony took them in. In the years that followed he became a part of their family. And as he battled to create a bond with the elephants, he came to realize that they had a great deal to teach him about life, loyalty, and freedom.

    What did you love best about The Elephant Whisperer?

    This book showed how amazing elephants are, how intuitive and "sensitive". I enjoyed Mr Anthony's ingenuity in finding ways out of difficult situations. I was quite surprised by how much I enjoyed the reader and the book.


    What does Simon Vance bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mr. Vance did an excellent job reading this book. I never would have thought to "read" it with an English accent. His accent when using the African vernacular added an authenticity to the book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Well, yes, but I don't want to say and ruin the moment for anyone planning to listen or read this book.

    Would you listen to Bring Me Home For Christmas again? Why?

    No, I enjoyed it but it's your basic romance and once was enough.


    Have you listened to any of Therese Plummer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I think Therese Plummer is an excellent reader. She helps make the book good.
