I loved it.
I have three Audible Plans,I have listened to over 800 books,this is the best.
Nevil Shute writes excellent novels.
The story is beyond compare.
Frank Muller is just not my favorite reader.
This book would make a great movie, unless Hollywood screws it up like they did On the Beach. Also made a move out of the Far Country which was horrible, but Jimmy Stewart in No HIghway in the Sky was very good!
would love to get more Nevil Shute - particularly Pied Piper and I will be ordering the others you have listed.
Fire Training & Fire Prevention Officer, Safety Training and Safety Consulting. Do a lot of listening while traveling.
How far would you go to fulfill an obligation? Travel to the farthest reaches of the earth? Give up your comfort, risk your life? That is what Keith Stewart does when his sister and her husband leave their daughter in the care of Keith and his wife for a trip half way around the world that ends in tragedy. In my opinion, this is the best of Nevil Shute's books. It was also one of his last.
Yes, in fact I have read and listened to this story a number of times and will do so again.
gee & unlay
Delightful! Pleasant! Interesting!
Keith Stewart. A solid good soul with no pretense and it proves you do not need things and a lot of money to be content!
No, but would love too!!!! This guy was amazing!!!! I have never heard such acting with ones voice. He brought every character to life and made them so distinct!! He was like the Meryl Strip of reading!!!! Excellent job Mr. Muller!!!!!!!! Superb!!!
Yes but I could not!
I would love to see this book as a movie or even on TV!
I liked this book. I didn't love it, but it was a good read/listen...entertaining, perhaps a bit predictable, but the characters were likable and I enjoyed it.
Yes, it is a great tale about a simple man with simple tastes and a sterling character.
This story shows that there is more than money to life - like satisfaction and honor. When you live a quality life, doing what satisfies your soul, all the money you need will flow to you.
I found it difficult in the beginning, but became so enraptured with the story that those things that bothered me to begin with became insignifigant
I read this book 40 or 50 years ago, and enjoyed it then. Finding it again was like finding a lost treasure. I shall be looking for more books written by Mr. Shute.
The author, Nevil Shute, wrote a fantastic book, and to add the best narrator, Frank Muller, to the production was absolutely perfect.
I liked how it was a very believable adventure story. I liked the characters in the story, especially Keith Stewart. I also liked Keith's niece and how sweet and appreciative she was when they had to adopt her. The story made me feel good about the goodness found in some of the people Keith would encounter in his adventure.
I am looking forward to reading it again in the future.
Love to exercise while listening
Humble hero conquers
Of course the main guy. He was surprised that he was internationally liked. Didn't ask or expect others to help. Such a positive book, unlike our negative world. Nice to know there are good people out there.
He really brought out the characters. And of course his accent.
Yes, I loved it. not many books leave you with warm fuzzies.
you will not be disappointed.
I stumbled onto this one as I was searching for books narrated by Frank Muller, one of my favorite narrators. What I found was a wonderful yarn about a humble, but determined Engineer that is singularly focused on doing the right thing, even at the peril of himself and his family. If you are looking for mystery, suspense, or jaw dropping plot twists then I would say that this isn’t the book for you. However, if you are looking for an excellent human interest story with likeable characters then I would highly recommend this one. I had never heard of Nevil Shute before reading this book but I found this book to be so enjoyable that I plan to try another one of his. The narration was exceptional.
