review So Disdained

To a bedraggled pedestrian he is amazed to discover an old wartime comrade from the Royal Flying C It pains me to give any novel by Nevil Shute fewer than five stars but he hadn t uite hit his stride yet in this his second of 26 gripping novels Usually I feel a real emotional bond with the characters but I didn t uite connect to the main character Peter Moran and the love interest Sheila However this novel still features the Shute trademark ordinary people going about their everyday business who are suddenly thrust into a situation that demands heroic ualities The best part of the book is when Peter sets off on his dangerous mission after a lingering farewell with Sheila and then not content to remain behind wringing her hands she charters a plane and shows up to save the day

summary ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Nevil Shute

One rainy night Peter Moran is driving across the Sussex countryside When he stops to give a lift This is one of Nevil Shute s earlier works written in 1928 and even with his early writings you can see his uniue story telling style The story is set during this time frame between the wars and there were many interesting bits of history assuming he was using a true perspective that I really wasn t all the knowledgeable about For one is the tension between England and Soviet Russia the story involves Russian spying on English military facilities As well at one point the main character Peter Moran must enlist the assistance of Italians to help a friend from the Communists and he asks for the help of the Fascists interesting that they might be considered an ally considering the events of WWII The story is typical Nevil Shute telling the story of a man relatively mild and even keeled who is put in a situation that forces him to make decisions that become heroic even though he doesn t feel them to be heroic I love the way Shute lays out his stories introduces his characters introduces concepts of patriotism or heroism without preaching but at the same time making you think about what they are and what they mean He is a story teller one of the best and it was enjoyable to read one of his early ones and see how his style developed as he came to write my favourites of his later works
