At Laragh on Saturday night the men would get together in the store office after tea and commence the serious business of the week, which was drinking rum.

This to me was typical Nevil Shute t. hough definitely no complaining as tis is what I have come to expect from Shute. From a very early on in the book it was obvious as to what the outcome was going to be and the story unfolded as per Shute writing I have read many of his books now but find that some of his books are just story telling whereas I find his earlier books, The Far Country, A Town Like Alice, Around The Bend, The Trustee From The Toolroom and the chequer board were books I initially read and each book while following a very enjoyable direction were very similar but non the less enjoyable for that, However after that it seemed he tried to resurrect these emotions but they just turned inot a rehash of earlier novels.If you are a Shute Fan you will enjoy this book but if it is a first reading of Shute you may find it disapointing.

I am a great fan of Mr. Shute starting with Pastoral which, being a European warrior of WWII, brings back so many memories. His writing is such in all of his novels as to get your immediate attention at the very start of your reading. My wife used to complain about many of her books that it took so long "to get into it" - not so with Nevil Shute. In "Beyond The Black Stump" he weaves a fascinating story of a particular part of Australia revealing the enormity of its wide spaces of land and the diversity of the people who live there. I think he goes a bit far in trying to portray the land of his story as America a hundred years ago and I was saddened by the dead end nature of his romances in this book as it was also in "An Old Captivity". I feel this one (romance) was obviously structured so that he could develop this interesting contrast between the old and the new world. As an American, I found no fault with his depiction of Hazel - it sounds like a lovely American town with lovely people. So we have flaws. I think Mollie would have worked out just fine but it's pretty clear he didn't want it to go that way - it's contrived from the beginning but then that's what authors are supposed to do. Ned Burr

I was rereading this for something like the fourth time. It is a vivid picture of life on the huge ranches in the Arid Australian Outback,
wrapped around a love story of a couple of very sensible people who end up doing the right thing when the chips are down. What is particularly interesting about this book is how it contrasts the modern (for 1950s) American West view of "the frontier" with the very real frontier life in the Outback.

Nevil Shute, as usual, provides a crew of marvellously portrayed characters throughout. He is one of my lifetime favorite authors. He shows, over and over again, rather ordinary people rising to very unordinary challenges with grace and true generosity of soul.

Much of his work is now being republished, and a whole new generation can get to know him.

One of Nevil Shute’s best reads. Very touching and in depth story by a great story teller. I will be reading it again.

Loving the Vintage Series by this author. Would recommend it to everyone, no sex, no violence, just a darn good read. Nevil Shute has me in the palm of his hand, am reading my way through his publications.

One of my favorite Shutes. An American geological engineer from a wealthy Oregon family goes to Australia to suss out an oil well location. Meets the white daughter of a large wealthy interracial Australian sheep-raising family. He takes her to Oregon to see how things will get along before they get married, and then the fireworks begin.

Love everything mr Shute has written. Narration is also spot on
Neville Shute is a vintage writer that is very knowledgable and this book has a great grasp of the cultural differences between Australia and the USA . It also highlights the racial perceptions of US citizens in the 1960's
