    Death In The Dark ContinentPeter Hathaway CapstickNonfictionAuthor Analysis There is no main character so I will do an author analysis The author in the book is a static person in the way he writes He has strong beliefs on the way animals should be hunted and he rarely strays from those beliefs As the story progresses he does not change his viewpoint on certain subjects Capstick is also very articulate in his word choices He uses many complex words Capstick also uses many words from langu Death In The Dark ContinentPeter Hathaway CapstickNonfictionAuthor Analysis There is no main character so I will do an author analysis The author in the book is a static person in the way he writes He has strong beliefs on the way animals should be hunted and he rarely strays from those beliefs As the story progresses he does not change his viewpoint on certain subjects Capstick is also very articulate in his word choices He uses many complex words Capstick also uses many words from languages that people speak from where he hunted Plot Critique I liked the overall plot in the book The setup was clever Capstick wrote it to describe the deadliest five animals in Africa Each animal took up a fifth of the book The animals did not overlap much in the next chapters Overview Capstick wrote the book in a way that I had never seen before He wrote about encounters with the Big Five or most deadly African animals The big five are buffalo, rhinoceros, lion, elephant, and leopard The encounters are not only personal experiences, but other professionals experiences, and stories that he has heard of from other colleagues Most of the stories are very gruesome and not for the feint of heart I rated the book a 4 because although I liked it, the format seemed too repetitive He did not give very much information on the animals Capstick generally just wrote of deadly encounters with the animals.I would recommend this book to people that like nature and hunting It is a classic hunting book that has a lot of close encounters with animals in it
