      A wild, captivating ride! Ellen Barry is exceptional in telling this incredible, mysterious story. The pictures add so much. I’m not surprised she won several Pulitzers.

        High five! Jeff and I were the only 2 reads and 2 comments for a bit and we were chatting about how someone else needs to read Jungle Prince because it really would be a perfect AOTD.

        This is the kind of stuff I'm loving right now - heavy and deep but not depressing. And actually quite inspiring, but in a way that's hard to describe.

          Hi Bill! I’ll admit to being swayed by Jeff’s 10 - amazing review. It’s funny how you can sway me too. Usually it’s a match, sometimes not. This was AWESOME! Since I’ve let go of the idea of a streak, I tend towards longer articles. There’s SO much that I have starred, it’s ridiculous! Please pull some investors out of your hats, as this just can’t disappear!

      Everything about this is more Wes Anderson than anything Wes Anderson has ever produced. Absolute 10. Amazing article.

      This is a CRAZY story. I love bizarre stuff like this.

      I can’t stop thinking about how exciting it would be to live in castle ruins in the middle of an overgrown forest in the middle of a huge city as royalty. What a life.
