    >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.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Never a dull moment in this story about one man's dedication to conservation of a herd of African elephants. The narrator provides a rich narration that adds to the story rather than detracts. Although this is an adventure it has a message about conservation, the challenges of post-apartied South Africa and of course the elephant herd.


    What other book might you compare The Elephant Whisperer to and why?

    Born Free might be a comparison and in The Elephant Whiperer the author talks about how the Born Free story was a part of the African past.


    What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

    The Austrailian accent (I think) added to the book and made you feel more like you were a world away.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This was a book that I couldn't wait until I could listen to it and in fact as soon as I finished the book I started listening to it again, I didn't want it to end.


    Any additional comments?

    This book really made me want to travel to the reserve in Africa and see it for myself!
