This story is a gentle romance that ranks above midway (7/10) of all the stories I have listened to. Set in WWII England the story is about the developing romance between a Bomber Command pilot and a WAAF Section Officer. The drama of the night bombing of Germany contrasting with the quietness of the fishing sub -plot serves to emphasize the difficulties of war time relationships. All-in-all, this is a story suitable for everyone.
Swashbuckling hero, beautiful heroine, fantastic story.
Great challenges to overcome, struggling against nearly impossible odds and yet succeeding.
The final battle with the "Eater of Souls"
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.
