    One thought on “Tribe”

    1. A group of friends that haven't seen each other for twelve years get together on a luxury game farm in South Africa to try and save Jude, one of their clan. Most of the tribe are wealthy, with access to the kind of privilege most of us can only dream of. Theirs was a life of excess and hedonism, but in middle age, they are facing the same demons most of us do, albeit with fewer of the financial worries. Jude and Tselane, his wife, are the only two who are middle class and struggling financially. [...]

    2. Many thanks to the publisher for my copy of this book.With Tribe, Xenopoulos has produced an iconic work that defines a generation MY generation.

They are so ti [...]

    3. Every once in awhile, you read a book that affects you so immensely, you have to stop and look at your life, and your past, and ask some soul-searching questions. I have, sadly, just finished reading one such book: Tribe. This read has been an emotional roller coaster ride of momentous proportions. It creeped into my core, slowly dug its claws in, and has still not let go! I have not become so emotionally attached to people in a book for as long as I can remember and now, 2 days after putting it [...]

    4. - "What you get is like a crying germ" He pauses, contemplating. "Best to wait it out then. That's what Mum says with flu - just wait it out." - She did the smart thing; she married a Volvo. - - Hannes wonders, as he did twelve years ago, if their quips are genuinely funny or if he's getting caught up in the hilarity of it all. - - He watches Zac during game drives; Zac goes along but not to photograph animals. This country is raw; the people live loud and the land is confrontational. Zac photog [...]

    5. This is not a novel that I would recommend to anyone who is offended by strong language or graphic sex scenes. It is for a fairly mature reader who, like me, is prone to pangs of nostalgia for the hedonistic heyday of a misspent youth, without the need to physically re-live that period verbatim. I didn't identify wholly with one particular character, but I could certainly relate to various aspects in several of them. Although a completely different offering to her two previous books, readers are [...]

    6. I always enjoy books like this one with multiple well developed characters. I also enjoyed it's music references. A good read, not entirely sure if there is a message to be had though.
