I had read the book in print years ago, and was moved by it then. I found it even more moving in Audio. yes, I would listen to it again.
The moment when he tells his wife, normally a remote person, that he does not have long to live and the way she shows her compassion towards him. I love the restrained portrayal of the hero and his wife.
He reads it in a way that fully encompasses and is sympathetic to the period in which the book was set.
I had read only one other Nevile Shute book, ' Town Like Alice', before this one. Now I will definitely listen to others, as they lend themselves so well to Audiobooks.
