    "Beautifully read"

    I agree with the first review. Nevil Shute has always been my favourite author - I just wish there were more of his books on audio, as I have difficulty reading nowadays. I did find the Morris/Helen romance had a perfect ending - quite obvious!

    "Excellent narrator"

    I loved this audiobook. The Nevil Shute - Gordon Griffin combo made me feel as if I had gone back in time 90 years.

    My only complaint is that the endings of the two love stories (Morris and Helen, Denison and Sheila) are missing. I regret that Nevil Shute decided to leave those parts to the reader's imagination.

    "Pretty dull."

    I have greatly enjoyed a number of Shute's other works (Trustee From The Toolroom, A Town Like Alice, Round The Bend), but I found this one to be tough sledding. It is not surprising that these are his first two published works. The plots are dull and I found the narration to be somewhat flat; the point of view switches frequently and it's hard which character is speaking. On his Wikipedia page, there is a quote from Shute indicating he thought these two books were not very good and I agree with that sentiment.
