4.0 out of 5 stars Love Nevil Shute Books, June 1, 2012
This review is from: The Breaking Wave (Vintage International) (Kindle Edition)
I have read quite a bit by Nevil Shute. His heroes are decent, real, serious, interesting, and human. I found this title after some serious hunting. I had read almost everything else he has written. I like how he weaves post-war England and the Australian country farms into his writing. The only reason I did not give this one 5 stars is because JP has such a hard slog. It was a bit depressing. Hard to have such a powerful story without her ordeals, though. I recommend The Pied Piper by Shute. Fantastic story. Read it immediately after this one and it will perk you up.
