May be ex-library. Buy with confidence, excellent customer service!. Jul 25, Nick rated it really liked it. The bookmark note from the Fish Creek library guy who recommended it said "A very strange book, and I loved it". I agree with both parts of that comment. Yes, that is difficult to to understand, and even tougher to try to explain! SO, if you have an open, curious mind, just read the book! If you can t find it, then read some of the No. I loved them all!
Mar 12, Maureen Grigsby rated it really liked it. This book was recommended to me by my favorite bookseller, Mary McBride. That said, it was a unique and compelling novel. Aug 16, Amy rated it really liked it. What a strange book.
But it leaves a lot to think about at the end. Never going on a safari now though. Nov 06, Rhod rated it liked it. I like the way the author develops the way a "frumpy" wife is able to redefine herself and discover a new independence from an uncaring, overbearing and alcoholic husband. I found the author's tendency to leave an adventure abruptly without completing it a bit annoying, but she brings into her story a surreal quality that adds another dimension to the book. I really enjoyed the book 4 stars worth until the ending - then I remembered I was reading Rachel Ingalls.
Binstead’s Safari – Rachel Ingalls
Love her imagination, but she is I like the way the author develops the way a "frumpy" wife is able to redefine herself and discover a new independence from an uncaring, overbearing and alcoholic husband. Love her imagination, but she is not above treating her characters rather harshly.

Except for the ending, the storyline reminds me of the movie "Bread and Tulips", a really delightful movie I saw recently via Netflix. Jun 18, Erik Carter rated it it was amazing. Who's binstead? Nov 16, Katie rated it liked it. This is a very weird book about anthropology and myth and fidelity and colonialism. Apr 20, Michaela rated it it was ok.

I knew when I started the book I'd have to read it critically just by the way they talk about Africa like it's a country, but god do you have to sift through a lot of crap to get to the storyline. They continuously refer to Africa as a country and always refer to black people in slightly racist connotations. The way that a white man Henry is revered as some kind of god to a tribe is on many levels very problematic. They even say th I knew when I started the book I'd have to read it critically just by the way they talk about Africa like it's a country, but god do you have to sift through a lot of crap to get to the storyline.
They even say that she was never this Interesting and Well Adjusted before she became pregnant with Henry's kid. What is the author trying to say by that?
The "power" of Henry and his desire of her humanized her and gave her a personality and the gall to bite back at Stan? I'm so unimpressed. There are some interesting critiques about white heterosexual relationships between Millie and Stan and that's the only redeemable part of this book.

But all of Millie's power is written to come from a different man showing interest in her. That concept of a man will save you from your abusive relationship is so tired and unhealthy. The ending was atrocious, too. The only character the readers were built up to care about was Millie and then she just dies and there are still at least 20 pages of story to go through that didn't add anything to the plot? I'm just confused. In the middle of the book I thought I understood what the message was a feminist critique on the way husbands are "allowed" to abuse and diminish their wives but it got totally lost.
Even Stan doesn't come to understand his true flaws, he just gets killed trying to kill this lion. I feel unsatisfied.
This was incredible. Ingalls was an amazing writing and I think Binstead's Safari showcases all of her talents. Her writing style is deceptively plain and draws you in bit by bit. Millie was such a great character: completely nice but unflappable.
