Big Jim Review

Big Jim

Fiction - Adventure


We’ve all heard of them; whether it be through films, news broadcasts, or celebrity endorsements. An African safari is a wonderous and breathtaking experience everyone should have on their bucket list. Yet, is it all just fun and games? Are there no repercussions?

Join James “Kubwa Jim” Peck, his best friend, Caesar Wilde, and their crew of native askari and wapagazis through the African terrains. Experience the thrill of the hunt, the dreariness of cropping, the banter of competition, and the chaos throughout.

David Lucero delivers a reality check to his readers in Big Jim. Through the minds of an American hunter, a local medicine man, a travel journalist, and several villagers, David reveals some of the truths behind living in Africa. Utilizing his talent for storytelling, David entwines sought facts into an awe-inspiring adventure keeping his readers not only informed, but captivated.

The initial influx of characters can be slightly overwhelming, but that quickly fades as the story unfolds. Plus, there is a lack of sexual content and no spelling nor grammatical errors were found. There is, however, a significant amount of profanity. So, a rating of 4 out of 5 stars is awarded.

As this book contains multiple encounters between man and beast, the following actions may cause one distress: alcohol consumption, poaching, mangled and bloody bodies (both human and animal), arrest, adultery, bullying, malaria, dengue fever, tick fever, decapitation, and snake bites.

A stunning and eye-opening exploration, Big Jim brings new light to the African Safari.
