Born Free written by Joy Adamson is a delightful read for many ages. The story follows Joy and her husband George as they live in Africa and help nurture three lion cubs. One cub needs special attention and wins the heart of Joy. The cub is named Elsa. Born Free is an autobiography of Joy's life with Elsa. From a literal standpoint the book is well written with extreme use of imagery and personification. One criticism is the author's use of non useful details. They distract from the story and its themes. This brings me to my next point, the themes and lessons. As you learn about Elsa growing up you see Joy slowly let her back into the wild. The lesson learned is if you love something let it go. The Adamson's live with many native Africans which gives us a sense of the couple's value of equality. The reader gets a taste of life in Africa experiencing Elsa and Joy's struggles and triumphs. Overall I strongly believe the book not only portrays a touching story, but is full of factual information. Born Free is a fabulous book and one of the best autobiographies out there.
