The car, a chilly little open roadster, drew away from the dim bulk of the dance hall. It accelerated with a crescendo of noise quite disproportionate to its performance and made off down the sea front, its one masked headlamp showing a feeble glimmer in the utter darkness. Presently it took a turning through the park towards the town. The horse that’s coming to tow us home. Otherwise you lose a finger. There was a light rain falling. In the darkness beneath the flapping fabric of the hood she stared at him.

Talk about Landfall

What a delight to discover a previously unknown novel by a long-dead favorite author! One of Shute's earliest efforts (1940) at a romantic action story, "Landfall" will appeal to all devotees of this beloved author. The book is not perfect. Great chunks of storyline are omitted or skipped over, notably his omission of any description of what the central character was working on at the time of his climactic catastrophe. In addition the "hero" is off-stage during the last third of the book, leaving the reader frustrated about the process of his recovery from injuries and earlier injustice or the progress of the "heroine's" social transformation. Nonetheless, "Landfall" has added enormously to my enjoyment of an uneventful winter reading season. Unlike most Shute, the central character, an RAF pilot, has a great sense of humor. He is really funny and one of my favorite Shute people. And although Shute's style of writing was still in the process of development, it was like meeting an old friend to suddenly encounter paragraphs that were so "classic Shute" that one wanted to reach out and give him a hug. I cannot say that a reader who doesn't know this beloved writer would have found this a gripping tale. There have been so many like it since its 1940 publication. But if you share my affection for Nevil Shute, don't miss it.!
Typical Nevel Shute. A master story teller with the ability to take you to another time and place and make you feel like you've really been there. I would recommend any of his books.
Terrific story well written absorbing, the character's can be well visualized . The class differences is covered so well
Shute could describe scrubbing out a tub and make you wish you were there. Each page pulls you to the next and after a while you sit back and think 'what have I actually been reading here'. You realize that much of it is ordinary details of someone's day and you loved it. Then he ramps up the action and you feel this book is going to end much too soon. Although there is the odd one that I haven't enjoyed this one was right up to strength.
Fine story, classic n s. But (and this was really disappointing) the actual physical book is a scanned text recognition book, with no effort to clean up the typeface or to format the book. Hard to read.
Well-written investigative-type book with a technical issue at the center. Neil Shute is unusual in writing books from an engineering standpoint but for a general interest audience.
WW II violence at a distance.
Along with TRUSTEE FROM THE TOOLROOM or NO HIGHWAY, this book could be a gift for your scientist or engineer who likes light reading.
Beware, though—It's not a video-game style plot or fantasy.
Nevil Shute lived in a time of world strife and engineering break throughs. His story gives us a glimpse of life during WWII and the challenges facing the young people in the war and on the side lines. While not of the style of a Tom Clancy, his stories do keep your interest and generate a deisre to keep reading until the book is finished. A most enjoyable book.
Classic Neville Shute novel but. a very poor edition. Typeface is too small to read and looks wrong on the page; too much white. And the blurb on the back cover gives away the whole plot, destroying the suspense.
