Summary
Overview: First published in 1935, C.S. Forester's classic romantic adventure is a tale of opposites attracted. Allnut and Rose, a disreputable Cockney and an English spinster missionary, wend their way down a river in Central Africa in a rickety, asthmatic steam launch, and are gradually joined together in a mission of retaliation against the Germans. Fighting time, heat, malaria and bullets, the two have a dramatic rapprochement before the explosive ending of the book. This tale of unlikely love is thrilling and funny and ultimately satisfying
Summary
The African Queen tells the story of Rose Sayer, a respectable missionary who is in Africa with her brother the Reverend Samuel Sayer, and Charles Alnutt the hard-bitten and disreputable skipper of the African Queen. Upon the death of her brother the pair become the unlikeliest of allies as marooned in German Central Africa during the First World War, they fight their ramshacle old launch, laden with explosives, downriver to strike a blow for England
