Shute, Nevil: On the Beach. V2. 5 Apr 2011

The most evocative novel on the aftermath of a nuclear war - The Times
Still incredibly moving after nearly half a century - Economist
Timely and ironic..an indelibly sad ending that leaves you tearful and disturbed - Los Angeles Times

After the war is over, a radioactive cloud begins to sweep southwards on the winds, gradually poisoning everything in its path. An American submarine captain is among the survivors left sheltering in Australia, preparing with the locals for the inevitable. Despite his memories of his wife, he becomes close to a young woman struggling to accept the harsh realities of their situation. Then a faint Morse code signal is picked up, transmitting from the United States and the submarine must set sail through the bleak ocean to search for signs of life.

Delighted to see Nevil Shute's work appearing here on Mobile Read. I'm looking forward to re-reading more of this excellent writer's books.

I'm still seeing a lot of apostrophes missing from contractions: Ill, Im, etc. It's no big deal for me to correct them for myself, but I thought someone might like to know. Still quite a few scannos and weird line breaks, as well, but it's definitely a nice start.

Thank you so much - I am thrilled to see those two Nevil Shute books on here, especially On The Beach. I have all his books in ancient paperback, I can't bear to get rid of them until I have replacements. I do hope there will be more, I especially look forward to In The Wet appearing.

Thanks again

Ren

Thanks Harry. I shan't be sharing them around and I have the paperbacks.
