Something about this author's calm, deliberate style creates unexpected excitement... we are warmed by the justice and sheer pleasure of it * Independent * Nevil Shute made me yearn for a faithful, plodding, Shute-type of man. I imagined us trekking across the Australian outback, finding a run-down hamlet, and then transforming it together until death or flood parted us * The Times *
