    Bellow evokes all the rich colour and exotic customs of a highly imaginary Africa in this comic novel about a middle-aged American millionaire who, seeking a new, more rewarding life, descends upon an African tribe. Henderson's awesome feats of strength and his unbridled passion for life earns him the admiration of the tribe - but it is his gift for making rain that turns him from mere hero into messiah.

    Neil Babcox says: "Great book, great audiobook"
    "Henderson the Rain King"
    Overall

    This a wonderful and inventive, fish out of water, African adventure. The novel is filled with humor and is uniquely personalized as it is told in a self deprecating, first person narrative, by a huge, middle aged man, who is keenly aware of his many faults and potential for gaffes but who can't resist seizing the moment in his huge hands and wringing everything he can from it. The choice of Joe Barrett as narrator and the style of Barrett's delivery is inspired.
