On the Beach, Nevil Shute — 1 Comment

  1. I read this novel when I was in my late teens, then again decades later. I couldn’t understand the calm way the characters went on with with what was left of their daily lives. Now I realise that they must have gone through the other stages before reaching acceptance. When I read about Putin’s threats in the newspapers and Iran’s determination, I wish I hadn’t reread it.
