The African Queen : The African Queen, basis for the famous film starring Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn, is C.S. Forester's classic romantic adventure, 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. These improbable allies are separated by the thin line of civilization upon which Rose hangs a blanket at night (leaving Allnut virtuously in the rain), yet 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, a book that is a delightful today as when Little Brown first published it in 1935. SC, 308 pages.
