"The most shocking fiction I have read in years. What is shocking about it is both the idea and the sheer imaginative brilliance with which Mr. Shute brings it off."
THE SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
They are the last generation, the innocent victims of an accidental war, living out their last days, making do with what they have, hoping for a miracle. As the deadly rain moves ever closer, the world as we know it winds toward an inevitable end....
On the beach
Have read the book and seen the movie, amazing story stays with you long after finishing the book.
I had to read this book for my señor year in high school and I just loved it. Rather than being a normal book with a plot and climax it focused on trying to emotionally show you why we as humans must learn to live together; and how are unimportant feuds will bring the end to all of human creations and culture. *Spoiler Alert* Rather than end with a typical story book ending Shute wants the reader to know that if this happens there will be no saving us it will be our inevitable demise. Great book!
Dull and boring
Very flat characters, some in denial others just alcoholics. Very stupid ending you could predict from the text on the purchase page. Save your money.
