    Description

    Dysentery, drunken soldiers, and corrupt officials provide the background for Neil Peart's physical and spiritual cycling journey through West Africa. 

    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.

    Fascinating Trip Across Cameroon

    As part of a college literature assignment before traveling to study in Tanzania I had to read the first chapter of this book. I found that one chapter fascinating then, and I find it even more so now. Having traveled to Africa several times, and having experienced the culture first hand, the author captures in accurate and factual observation the realities of life in Africa, and traveling there. His struggle and dynamic with other riders is also held my interest. Despite the author’s hardship, I kind of want to do a similar trip myself. Well written book with good perspective.

    Another fantastic book by Mr. Peart

    First and foremost, anything that Mr. Peart has produced has been absolutely amazing. All of his writings have been inspiring, thought provoking and insightful. This book is no different.

    Secondly, Mr. Peart has selected probably one of the best narrators of audiobooks out there. Mr. Sutherland's narration has the ability to bring out what the author has written in such a way that you would believe your are actually listening to author himself.

    Mr. Peart's ability to describe what he is experiencing and feeling in this book, and his others, is amazing enough to bring you into his current environment and have you reacting as he did. That being said, I have no need or want to ever visit the areas of Africa that he had the misfortune of visiting in this book.

    Listen to this book first before you listen to his others. There is a purposeful chronological order to them and you will soon find out why. Thankfully, Mr. Sutherland narrates Mr. Peart's books.

    Life Lessons Through Diversity

    Interesting story about the villages in Cameroon and insight on a journey through a Third World country without having to be there and experience the hardship on your own. Neil does a great job putting you there with him on the bicycle, interacting with the others on the tour and of course the typical wisdom that he possesses continues to help extrapolate the lessons from the books he reads on the trip and just basically dealing with others on a month long journey. Really enjoyed the book, I have always been a fan of his drumming but as I grow older realize more of the similarities that I have other than just music.

    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.

    Rider

    great read. if you like Neil Peart, recommend reading this before ghost Rider. This helps the listener understand the character better.

    wonderfully done

    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?

    The narrator.

    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.

    another surprisingly great read

    I left his first book for last because I just wasn't interested in the subject but I was very surprised to find it every bit as interesting as all the others. you really get no sense of who he is as a musician in the book. its just him on a month long bicycling trip across Africa with 4 strangers.

    a Journey with the Professor

    I love this narrator. He channels Neil Peart so I hear his voice. Neil had a most amazing way of looking at the world and we are blessed to have his books

    bike ride through Africa

    In January 2020, I started learning about Neil Peart the drummer for the band RUSH. But I was surprised to find out that he also has written many books. So I decided to read them. This book was about his bike tour through Africa. Its about the horrible conditions they went through, people they met and the difficult relationships he had with some of the people in the bike group. I was happy to find out that he narrated the book. I was sad to find out that he recently died of a brain tumor. Anyway, I liked the book and I recommend it.
