Reviews

"That supreme storyteller, Nevil Shute" * The Times * "Shute was a brilliant storyteller and terrific example for any writer" -- Gerald Seymour * Express * "Nevil Shute made me yearn for a faithful, plodding, Shute-type of man. I imagined us trekking across the Australian outback, finding a run-down hamlet, and then transforming it together until death or flood parted us" -- Sue Townshed * The Times *
