The Lioness: A Novel | Chris Bohjalian
50 posts | 35 read | 44 to read
A luxurious African safari turns deadly for a Hollywood starlet and her entourage in this riveting historical thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of The Flight Attendant. Tanzania, 1964. When Katie Barstow, A-list actress, and her new husband, David Hill, decide to bring their Hollywood friends to the Serengeti for their honeymoon, they envision giraffes gently eating leaves from the tall acacia trees, great swarms of wildebeests crossing the Mara River, and herds of zebras storming the sandy plains. Their glamorous guestsincluding Katies best friend, Carmen Tedesco, and Terrance Dutton, the celebrated Black actor who stars alongside Katie in the highly controversial film Tender Madnesswill spend their days taking photos, and their evenings drinking chilled gin and tonics back at camp, as the local Tanzanian guides warm water for their baths. The wealthy Americans expect civilized adventure: fresh ice from the kerosene-powered ice maker, dinners of cooked gazelle meat, and plenty of stories to tell over lunch back on Rodeo Drive. What Katie and her glittering entourage do not expect is this: a kidnapping gone wrong, their guides bleeding out in the dirt, and a team of Russian mercenaries herding their hostages into Land Rovers, guns to their heads. As the powerful sun gives way to night, the gunmen shove them into abandoned huts and Katie Barstow, Hollywood royalty, prays for a simple thing: to see the sun rise one more time. A blistering story of fame, race, love, and death set in a world on the cusp of great change, The Lioness is a vibrant masterpiece from one of our finest storytellers.

⭐️⭐️⭐️

This historical fiction thriller is cinematic and I could see it translating well to a movie or mini-series! For me as an audiobook, there were too many characters to keep track of (10 different points of view!), and delving into the backstories kept breaking up the action of the story. 🎧

A 1960's mega-star takes her husband & 7 of her closest friends on a photo safari in the Serengeti which few will survive. Within days they go from luxury glamping to deadly nightmare after they are kidnapped. Some try to fight back but lose their lives to the kidnappers or the animals they came to photograph, some can't find their bravery, & one is culpable in the kidnapping.

I went into this cold-I only knew it was a mystery about a 1960‘s film star who goes on an African Safari with friends. I was enjoying the characters, story and narration of the audiobook but soon got bogged down by the frequent changes in POV as well as time changes from the Safari to earlier days. The transitions weren‘t smooth enough for me and I got confused about who was who. As the story turned uglier and uglier, I couldn‘t wait to be done.

Bluebird Perhaps I would have done better if I read the ebook instead of audio—but i don‘t think so. Quite disappointing since I enjoy this author and the first part of the book was so good (edited) 5mo

Book 84

The Lioness, set in the 1960s, is about a group of Hollywood stars on a safari in the Serengeti. Instead of the anticipated adventure observing wildlife, the stars are kidnapped by a group of Russian mercenaries.

MelKelsey The majestic violence of the desert setting was enthralling, and a desire to see African animals in their habitat has grown in me because of reading The Lioness. I was completely ignorant of the African-Russian conflict the book was set amidst and want to know more.

5mo
MelKelsey The book's format held it back from its potential to be a gripping, suspenseful, page-turner. Chapters begin with an excerpt from Hollywood tabloids, rotate between characters, and contain flashbacks to life before. The twists were predictable. The book was well-written but could have been more. I can see it being a great movie! 5mo

It was a very close call for my favorite book read in June. I‘m giving the tagged book the slightest edge for sentimental reasons, since the author @ChrisBohjalian is a long-time Litten who gives Litsy a shout-out in his bio in the book.

That being said, The No. 1 Ladies‘ Detective Agency edges it out for the best between May/June, and so far it‘s in the running for best book I‘ve read in 2022.

A movie star, her husband, costar, best friend, and others join her honeymoon safari in the Serengeti #Tanzania, that goes all wrong when they‘re party is attacked. Who will live, who will die (and how)? Each chapter is told from the perspective of one of the party members, with cutaways to their non-African life that help us understand the characters, their motivations, and why these bad things happened to them. I loved the structure and the ⬇️

Texreader story. This is the first book I‘ve read by this fellow Litten @ChrisBohjalian and I‘m glad. I sometimes like reading an author‘s “mature” book first because you know it‘ll be among his best and makes me more forgiving of earlier books (which I see have some mixed reviews) that might not be as well written. #authoramonth #readingafrica2022 (edited) 5mo

I‘d never read Chris Bohjalian‘s work, but because a) he‘s the #AuthorAMonth, b) he‘s lovely on Litsy, and c) I enjoyed Season 1 of The Flight Attendant series (haven‘t yet started Season 2), it was time to try one of his books. I liked it! Great characters, plentiful action (sometimes distressingly so! 😳), interesting historical contexts and social commentary, and quality writing. (A good escapist read, if you need one in this moment...😔)

Lions, leopards & hyenas, oh my!This book grabbed hold of me & wouldn‘t let go. Loved the Hollywood spin & the way Bohjalian brilliantly crafted every chapter to reveal one more layer of each character‘s troubled past and terrifying present. Too bad starlet Katie didn‘t know about Liz Taylor‘s 60th B-Day Bash. If she took everyone to Disneyland, things would have turned out much better! 😉

I think I read this book while distracted. I just found it going back and forward in time too much between characters and tenses and I kept forgetting where I was. I've enjoyed other books by Chris Bohjalian and was instantly connected to them so this won't deter me from reading further works or maybe even rereading this book someday.

I‘m so glad I didn‘t read the blurb before I began this audio😁All I knew was this was a historical fiction novel about a Hollywood starlet who goes on a luxury safari as part of her honeymoon. What I got was an edge of your seat thriller that I could not put down!!! Audio narration was fabulous🎧Set in the mid 1960‘s this book is a throwback to old Hollywood as well as colonialism, politics, bravery and deception. A strong pick #AAM

Well, this was a wild (pun intended) ride! How the ‘why‘ of this 1964 mystery unfolded was a really good read, and I didn‘t even care about why nearly as much as who, if anyone, was going to make it back to Hollywood alive. There are some creative ways to die on a safari, particularly if bad guys are involved!

The Lioness is a combination of historical fiction and suspense with a unique Tanzanian safari setting. This book has realistic characters and evocative descriptions of the characters relationships both past and present. Chris keeps us guessing right up until the end with a gripping, satisfying conclusion with a twist that I didn‘t see coming.

I listened to this as an audiobook and the narrative was stunning! Another fabulous book! Book 47.

This was a good literary thriller! The setting of the Serengeti was magnificent & a different setting from what I usually read. The bits about Hollywood were also enjoyable. I love books with characters that are actors, etc. There were almost too many points of view especially in the beginning, but as the plot takes off there are fewer switches. I recommend this one! A great read from @ChrisBohjalian ! I look forward to what he‘s working on next!

I loved this celebrity safari gone wrong! I don‘t often read historical thrillers, but imagine Evelyn Hugo crossed with Fierce Kingdom. January LaVoy‘s narration was great!

Several Hollywood stars are kidnapped while on a honeymoon safari in #Tanzania, but it‘s hard to know what‘s more dangerous, the Russian kidnappers or the wild animals. As the kidnapping starts to go awry, lives are in peril. The reveal was quite enjoyable.

My own personal lion, Pixie. Don‘t let the glare fool you; she loves curling up at my feet in the morning as I read. 😀

There are a lot of great things in The Lioness. The setting of the Serengeti makes for a suspenseful location. The references to classic Hollywood and classic literature imbue it with a sense of nostalgia. There are a few things that don‘t work as well as I had hoped. But overall it‘s a good read and I would recommend it.

Chris Bohjalian delivers another fun drama/thriller. A group of 60‘s era movie stars are on safari to celebrate the wedding of Hollywood starlet Katie. They‘re having a grand time watching and photographing the wildlife when their camp is ransacked and they are all taken hostage.

I really liked this one and raced through it. It would be a good choice for next month‘s #authoramonth. I just couldn‘t wait.

For #readafrica2022 I picked this one representing #Tanzania. This author is an automatic buy and I loved how he brought the Tanzanian landscape to life while at the same time telling a page turning story about a kidnapping gone wrong. Book is populated by a lot of characters so that can get confusing at times as each character has his/her POV. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ @BarbaraBB @Librarybelle #travelthroughbooks
