  • Great read and a real page turner.

    I've read a few of Nevil's books now and find them very readable. It's instantly possible to feel sympathetic to the protagonist in this one. Well worth a read if you want to transport yourself back to England in the 1950's.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Trustee from the Toolroom by Neville Shute

    Excellent well written story. Truly a classic about the everyman's triumph in the face of adversity. Sadly books of this calibre seem to become lost to future generations of readers.

  • Beautiful, Contrived, Heart-Warming

    This novel is classic Neville Shute, taking the reader along with the most unlikely of characters on a story spanning the globe. In fact in many ways Keith is interchangeable with the lead from No Highway, and the two stories have a lot in common. They also have a certain implausibility in common. However I love the naive authenticity of Shute's writing so much I forgive him this very easily.

    Thanks for your feedback!
