A Horrible Story and Subject

I admit that I am repelled by wild game hunters who kill lions and other large African animals for the sport of it, and that is what this is about. The main character is just thrilled that he was able to shoot and kill a beautiful adult male lion. I don’t know why I even finished the book. I guess I was hoping the lion would get away. No such luck.
