Classic Book

by ris227 on May 6, 2011

I had never read this novel, nor watched the movie. The story, written years ago, could be from now. The book is timeless. I have read many of Nevil Shute's books, but this one really stands out & I will never forget it.

Very good novel. Had me thinking about what could have happened in a nuclear global war.
