The prolific drummer for the rock band Rush travels through African villages, both large and small, and relates his story through journal entries and tales of adventure, while simultaneously addressing issues such as differences in culture, psychology, and labels. Literary and artistic sidekicks such as Aristotle, Dante, and Van Gogh join Peart and his cycling companions, reminding the listener that this is not just another travel book - it is a story of both external and introspective discovery and adventure.

Where does The Masked Rider rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
One of the best I have listen to. Brian Sutherland does a great job of catching Neil Peart's expressiveness with his reading.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Have you listened to any of Brian Sutherland’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have listen to Brian's work on other Neil Peart books and he does a great job.

Downbeat and Disappointed in Cameroon
Most helpful thing I have to say - if you're looking for a great book about travelling through Africa on two wheels - get Sam Manicom's "Into Africa".
My summary of Masked Rider - he didn't enjoy the trip, didn't like Cameroon or it's inhabitants, didn't like his travelling companions. And didn't even manage to get some humour out of it.
Whatever the opposite of inspiring is, this book was it for me.
