So Disdained Reviews


Any book by Nevil Shute is a delight * Punch *
That shattering, unaffected, literary style of his is masterly -- H.E. Bates
There is a quality of golden light that hangs over his books. That comes, I think, from his sense of order and from his own vast, undemonstrative solicitude -- John Ezard * Guardian *
