Praise

“Shute’s most significant book.” —The New York Times
 
“In the gripping, breathless tradition of a master craftsman.” —TheHouston Post
 
 “[Shute was] not only a brilliantly fluent storyteller but also an ironic commentator on the world scene.” —Harpers & Queen
 
“A happy knack endows this story with a character who is slightly greater than life-size. It proves once again how the ordinary, the average, the season-ticket holder sitting next to you, can still, in the hands of an expert, furnish the very stuff of literature.” —Daily Express
 
 “A novelist of intelligent and engaging quality, deservedly popular…. Nevil Shute was, in brief, the sort of novelist who genuinely touches the imagination and feeling.” —The Times (London)
