An All Time Classic

This is a great book. The characters are well developed and interesting. The dialogue is often witty. The narration is excellent. Two all time memorable characters, Charlie Allnut and Miss Rose Sanger. I love when she says, Nature Mr. Allnut is what we are put on this earth to rise above!

Book & movie

The African Queen has always been one of my favorite movies. Having the opportunity to listen to the audiobook fleshed out much about the characters that the movie obviously could not do. I would recommend this audible book to anyone who is a fan of the movie, or the works of CS Forrester
