New Read Tick Bite FeverBy David Bennun For Kindle ePUB or eBook – wildweaves.co.uk

Tick Bite Fever Tick Bite Fever is the unconventional memoir of a very unconventional childhood.In the early Seventies, Dave Bennun s family transplanted themselves from Swindon to the wilds of Kenya His father, who was a doctor, had lived in Africa before but had felt it expedient to leave when the South African government realised he was carting explosives around in the boot of his car for the ANC For Dave, Kenya was bemusingly new It would be his home for the next 16 years.In Kenya, the childhood memoir takes on a rather surreal tone On the way home from school, closed because a pair of lions are padding around the playground, Dave is mugged by baboons Meet Dave s favourite pet Achilles, the almost indestructible dog Find out about Nairobi snow and the national radio station that only has three records And read about Dave and his Dad spending happy Sunday afternoons being chased by a herd of elephants Enchantingly funny, Tick Bite Fever is a tale of the fading innocence of childhood, miles ahead of the competition.

I really wanted to enjoy this book, especially as I lived in Kenya for twenty years and looked forward to taking a trip down memory lane.The first part I did find amusing David was the kid from hell, always getting into trouble The family s camping trips were also a good read, and I loved his doctor father s enthusiasm for playing around with old vehicles and his ability to get the family out of some of the predicaments into which he got them.However, I felt that the tone of the book changed d I really wanted to enjoy this book, especially as I lived in Kenya for twenty years and looked forward to taking a trip down memory lane.The first part I did find amusing David was the kid from hell, always getting into trouble The family s camping trips were also a good read, and I loved his doctor father s enthusiasm...
