Eleanor, November 28, 2006 (view all comments by Eleanor)
I read this recently, and I think it's impossible to come away from a book like this unaffected. Shute's post-apocalyptic novel will make readers seriously consider the effects of nuclear war. It might seem like an outdated concept, but it's not. This is a remarkably human book, portraying people who know that in a matter of months they will be dead of radiation poisoning, and are waiting for the inevitable. Some try to deny it as best they can, but they all come to accept it out of necessity. Deeply moving.
