“Shute is an honest, exciting adventure writer who blends narrative gift with a fine power of description." (John Betjeman)
"That shattering, unaffected, literary style of his is wholly deceptive...is, in fact, masterly." (H.E. Bates)
Thought provoking view of what might occur in the future in a struggle between the British parliment and the monarchy--from the perspective of a reluctant witness.
I realize that this book was written in the 1950's, but that is no excuse in my opinion. The protagonist nickname is the N-word, and worth part about it is that he has no problem being called the N-word. Just wish Mr. Shute or his editor had had to intelligence to realize that this subtle racism is not ok.
I am currently listening to "The Doom" by Stephen King.
He did a good job with this subpar material.
The protagonist whose nickname is the N-word.
