Summary So Disdained

So Disdained Summary Ò 104 review ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ✓ Nevil Shute One rainy night Peter Moran is driving across the Sussex countryside When he stops to give a lift. From the preface And then none shall be unto them so odious and disdained as the traitours who have solde their countrie to a straunger and forsaken their faith and obedience contrarie to nature or religion and contrarie to that humane and general honour not onely of Christians but of heathen and irreligious nations who have always sustained what labour soever and embraced even death itself for their countrie prince and commonwealth Sir Walter Raleigh I m not sure what it is but when I read one of Nevil Shute s novels I find them so engaging Like chocolates once started it is hard to stop until the box is empty until the novel endsThis was his second published novel and was written in 1928 In a sense it is a Good Samaritan story and the narrator Peter Moran comes upon a pilot who crash landed is ill with malaria and so he takes him in Peter Moran is the agent for a Lord s estate in Sussex and his home is a small house on the estate He isn t even sure himself why he feels compelled to help Maurice Lenden aside from the fact that they were both pilots during WWIIt is fascinating to me that this novel predicts a break with Russia that didn t come to fruition until decades later It is prescient in depicting political and social incidents and attitudes that end up being all too real in future decadesThis book has a couple of fascinating flying seuences It also has a tough and scenic description of a hike through mountainous terrain in Italy I also enjoyed the characterization of Sheila and of Molly Mary who is Maurice Lenden s wife Considering the story is placed early in the 20th Century these women are strong capable and independentI thoroughly enjoyed reading this story and once again look forward to reading of Nevil Shute s gripping novels in the months ahead

So Disdained

So Disdained Summary Ò 104 review ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ✓ Nevil Shute Orps Moran's loyalty is tested as he agrees to help his friend even though he has acted treasonabl. One of Shute s earliest books written before he had really settled in to his style It has the fussiness that one expects from him without the saving grace of a rattling good story He fails to bring out the relationships between his characters in a clear manner eg his relationship with Shiela doesn t seem real and it s never made clear why he decided not to blow the whistle on Lenden at the start Several incidents test the reader s willingness to suspend disbelief showing Shute s lack of experience the ease with which he is able to hide the airplane the convenient presence on a country estate of a skilled airplane mechanic just when he needs one the sudden unexplained appearance of Stenning to save the situation at the end the willingness of the Fascisti to help him when it was not in their economic interest to do soAll in all a book that would appleal only to dedicated fans of Nevil ShuteNote Like several of Shute s books this one was published elsewhere under a different title The Mysterious Aviator

So Disdained Summary Ò 104 review ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ✓ Nevil Shute To a bedraggled pedestrian he is amazed to discover an old wartime comrade from the Royal Flying C. I was an ardent Nevil Shute fan as a teenager Still am I plan to read all his books again So Disdained is Nevil Shute s second book written in 1927 whilst he was working on the gigantic R100 Airship at Howden Yorkshire He was the airship s mathematicianchief calculator working during the day with the great engineer Barnes Wallis For relaxation Shute started writing novels during the evenings It paid off with him later becoming the most popular author in the world for a time It is interesting to observe his writing craft develop Reading this book reminds me of watching a very English 1940 s black and white film and it seems structured that way The characters are a bit thin and there is a series of improbable coincidences But I suppose we should remind ourselves that coincidences are perfectly acceptable in art Shute tends to depict the Fascisti as the good guys in Italy as they were fighting the Communists Communism was stirring in Britain at the time and some mistakenly thought Fascism was the antidote not realizing it was just another head of the same socialist two headed rabid dog Shute portrays the overall decency of the English gentlemen of the 1920 s era with their sense of fair play An enjoyable easy read
