I was a big fan of CS Forester s Hornblower series and had become completely enthralled by that world So reading The African ueen and other Forester works like The General directly after finishing the Hornblower series felt strange I still enjoyed them Forester was a very solid writer But those books were their own thing separated by time and setting It took some switching of gears to get into them and then they were done Finished before I could get invested in the characters as I had with Hornblower

Forester ¼ 7 Summary A classic story of adventure and romance the novel that inspired the legendary movie starring Katherine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart A fast moving tale and a very good yarnMr Forester again and again proves himself a master of suspense New York Times Book ReviewAs World War I. For the first time in 2017 I participated in bingo in the group catching up on classics One suare is read a classic romance and initially I was thrown for a loss because I do not even read contemporary romance as a genre After typing classic romance into lists one of the books offered was The African ueen by C S Forester I had been exposed to the movie starring Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn many times because it is one of my mother s favorite movies but had never read the 1935 classic until now It is 1914 Rose Sayers is deep in the African Congo when World War I arrives on the continent Germans fighting the British for control of the interior of the territory murder her brother Samuel Immediately help arrives in the form of cockney mechanic Charlie Allnut who had been working for the Belgians in Nigasi After burying Samuel Rose and Charlie concoct a plan to avenge his death Guiding Allnuts s small steamer the African ueen over the waterfalls of the Ulanga River to a Lake most likely Victoria they will torpedo the German fighter Konigin Luise and gain superiority for the British The plot comes with many pitfalls mainly that the African ueen is ill suited for much than lazy river travel The boat breaks down and the couple has to repair it many times over not before falling in love while in close uarters Charlie and Rose share a honeymoon and I could envision Bogart and Hepburn here as I uickly read through to find a resolution I found the book to be dated Even though it was three hundred pages in length they were short pages and the novel read fast Forester employs simplistic language and role of both men and women is indicative of the era in which he wrote Yet the story was fun with Forester turning the plot into both an adventure of good versus evil and a racy romance starring the protagonists If he did not intend the novel to be a screenplay it is evident that the story translated well to the silver screen with the roles of Charlie and Rose being earmarked for the stars of the day Most likely I would not have read The African ueen if classic romance was not a bingo suare Romance is a genre I tend to avoid as it overlooks positive character traits of both men and women in favor of romantic undertones The story behind this classic story was a fun adventure by an author whose work I would be willing to revisit The African ueen was a fun 4 star read for a lazy afternoon and I am eagerly awaiting to see the film again
