Synopsis

The African Queen is the story of a jerry-rigged attack on a German gunboat in Central Africa during the early days of World War I. An important subplot is the love story between the Charlie Allnutt, captain of the small launch named The African Queen, and Rose Sayer, the sister and companion of an Anglican missionary who dies in the first part of the novel. Rose's personality is the driving force of the attack, and the novel. Interestingly, the original UK edition has a happy ending, with the couple surviving to be married, but in the US edition, Allnutt dies during the attack. -
