Totally satisfying novel of one man going to extraordinary lengths to resurrect a dying town. Few writers capture the indomitable human spirit as does Nevil Shute. I've read many of his books and this is one of his best. The narrator is also perfect for the book.

I am a fan of Nevil Shute and the marathons usually match the stories. This narrator was impossible do me to listen to. Had to go to .75. It did drone on a bit and with the accent made some words harder but so much better than regular speed. It took longer but it was a good story.
About the only book left for me is On The Beach. I found the move so upsetting I don't think I can listen to it.
Everything about this was nice, now how often can we say that.
This is my first time with Nevil Shute and I'm glad I went with it and persevered. The begining was a little dry but I was soon engrossed in the story and the characters. And what a different story for me. It's a little short but I liked the pictures painted of the lives and times - grim times too for the out of work men & women but it shows not to loose all hope, ever.
