If you enjoy his personality you likely will enjoy this book.
It probably won't be everyone's favorite book — indeed, I doubt any book could be — but it's one of mine; an "old friend," first discovered by chance, that I turn to time and again.
If you love the outdoors, fishing, horses, airplanes, snakes, toads, and human beings, there is a good chance you'll enjoy this book. If If you dislike hunting on principle, you might not — but, on the other hand, you might try reading it anyway, as White very cogently considers his own feelings on hunting, which was (in his time and place) an activity simply expected of a person of his social standing.
Lastly, if you love the poetry of the English language, you will find this book full of glittering gems. White was a master of the medium, and his gifts are in full force here.
I've found that —England Have My Bones— really gets under my skin. Perhaps it will get under yours, too.
