Truly Magical Read
on 29 August 2015
I have just bought this book for my kindle, having a paperback version that's falling apart from being read. I love Nevil Shute's books, they all contain that element of mysticism somehow that transforms them from your standard aircraft type novels into something quite special. But this, this is the most special one of all. The sheer intensity of the emotions of the bomber pilot and the great love he has for his one girl are vividly depicted. Few writers working today could match this storyteller.
I am busy buying many 'old' authors for my kindle, to preserve the copies I have and to be able to have their magic with me at all times on the equally magical kindle. Nevil Shute is right there at the top of the buying list and this is the first of his books I have bought, as it's the one I love the most.
