Not Nevil Shute's best, but still good
The parts about WWII were well written and convincing.
I think it's best to start with A Town like Alice, which is really great. The Breaking Wave is good but just not up to that level.
Everything. He is one of the best readers.
Another great Shute!
Much better! The only issue with Tull is his lack of knowledge of English names-Lymington is not "lime-inton" but lim-ington-otherwise he is good!
When Alan discovers the dead girl-Janet- is Bill's(his brother) girlfriend
When Janet manages to outshoot the whole navy!
Absolutely if there was time enough!
This book is a great-if sad-read! All the Shutes are excellent stories with little violence and no sex-try them all "Town like Alice" On the Beach, Round the bend etc-I think there are 16 or 17 in all
