    Free read ↠ The Last Wild Men of Borneo É PDF DOC TXT eBook or Kindle ePUB free The Last Wild Men of BorneoRead almost exactly half and then DNF except for seeing all the photos and their trailers and skim reading the last few chapters of BrunoThis just seems all over the place I could not connect to their hedonism and habits Not the Borneo but our 2 principle players Nor their heavily slanted propensities to their own wishes and agenda as opposed to the wishes purposes of the indigenous people Non fiction I find the most excellent when it is focused far upon a specific subject matter along a factual or scientific or orderly continuum For me this was lacking here despite the writing flow prose form being at least 3 stars At times the characters seem

    Free read ↠ The Last Wild Men of Borneo É PDF DOC TXT eBook or Kindle ePUB free The Last Wild Men of BorneoThis hasn't been a good reading month This book is not what the title led me to believe I thought Oh goodculturalindigenoussurvival but noit isn't that at all It is about white men who go to Borneo for treasure and end up living there as they loot the treasure and sell it off And then one of them goes missing This was a book about them not the Wild Men of Borneo There were too many references likening them to Tarzan I think Tarzan is coolbut this was not that I really didn't like this one So 1 star

    Free read ↠ The Last Wild Men of Borneo É PDF DOC TXT eBook or Kindle ePUB free The Last Wild Men of BorneoDelectable although it should be a sad book C onsidering the context which is about the destruction of the Borneo rainforest and its ancient human cultures It is a true life thriller and semianthropological book the destruction of the rainforest and part of the drama behind it The story of Bruno Manser I otherwise missed this ecological disaster is minimally covered in the news I've readlike Russia's ongoing war with the UkraineVery well written

    Free read ↠ The Last Wild Men of Borneo É PDF DOC TXT eBook or Kindle ePUB free The Last Wild Men of BorneoListened to the audio as usualThe reader had a uniue cadence to his voice that while not unpleasant I found a bit distractingI was expecting a bit out of this book There are a number of interesting parts such as antiuities dealing something I know little about and about Bruno Manser's survival adventures The writing style is also very solid I think But I didn't uite connect to the book as a whole and found that the dual narratives didn't work for me I couldn't uite finish it either since I got a bit lost with it Perhaps it was also the reader and if I had read the print I might have rated it higher So two stars it was ok
