Reader reviews for Masked Rider, The: Cycling in West Africa

This is a curious mix of travelogue and philosophical musings. The travel part sounds like one part adventure and nine parts misery. I surely wouldn't have wanted to be one of Mr. Peart's companions - he was unstinting in his descriptions of them. While Mr. Peart has a gift for description and certainly does a lot of thinking, he came across as too detached in this memoir. One part of this book that really resonated with me - his unapologetic appreciation of civilization and his practical and pragmatic view of the world.

I enjoyed this book by Neil Peart more than his follow-up Ghost Rider. Very enjoyable.
