I am a massive fan of Shute ever since reading 'On the Beach' a number of years ago. Since then I have worked my way through most of his catalogue and always enjoyed the softness of his works and captivating storylines. I suppose it had to happen one day, but this is the first of his books I really just couldn't get into.

The book follows Johnny Pascoe, a brilliant pilot who has has crashed his plane in an attempt to rescue a sick girl in a remote Australian location. He is seriously ill and although being looked after by the girls mother if a real doctor does not get to see him it is obvious he has little time left. An old pupil of Johnny's by the name of Ronnie Clark offers to fly a doctor to the site in the hope of providing treatment, but hampered by bad weather and a landing strip no better than a small clearing it is much harder than imagined. Whilst waiting for the doctor and in between attempts Ronnie stays at the Johnny's home where he is able to look at the ailing pilots belongings and build a picture in his mind of the life he has led. By way of a series of dreams Ronnie lives through some of the major events and lost loves of Johnny's youth and allows the reader to understand the events that have shaped the man.

Where I enjoyed the almost supernatural element shown on 'In the Wet' here I felt it really distracted me. The book seemingly drifted from Johnny's life to Ronnie's with no warning which made it really difficult at time to know who was speaking. I am sure this must have been quite an innovative way of writing at the time, but I just found it annoying. I suppose if I had to sum up the book I would say that as an introduction to Shute it may be worth starting elsewhere, as if this was my first novel by the author it would have also been my last, and I would have missed out on some brilliant stories.

Ronnie Clarke is a captain, flying for Australian Continental Airways in the 1950's, when he learns of an air accident in a remote area in Tasmania. The pilot, Johnnie Pascoe has suffered serious head and needs urgent medical assistance. Ronnie decides to go to his aid, as Johnnie Pascoe had taught him to fly in England, in the 1930's and they had meet irregularly over the ensuing years and held a deep respect and affection for each other.
The plan is for Ronnie to fly a local doctor in, however two successive attempts fail due to bad weather and Ronnie is forced to take rest in Johnnie's own home. When he sleeps in Johnnie's bed, he dreams vividly of Johnnie's life. In this way, the reader learns Johnnie's story, a tragic one and Ronnie becomes more determined to reach him. A young nurse arrives, volunteering to join the mission, but what is her connection to Johnnie?
Once again, I found this a very satisfying read. He presents an intriguing tale and depicts a time past when there was a gentlemanly restraint and respect in men's affection for women. I find my annual read of one of his book soothes the senses in these modern times. Yes, women are portrayed as the weaker sex to be protected but there is always the balance of a woman who dares to be different and in this case, one who becomes a pilot in the 1930's. ( )

Six-word review: Pilot's life passes before friend's eyes.

Extended review:

Oddly titled novel of aviation and doomed romance, with more than a touch of what we'd now call "magic realism," something I've seen in other Shute novels: one consciousness sliding into another to reveal a hidden narrative. Here it occurs through the medium of dreams and the effect of environmental proximity. The author achieves a nice balance between the plausible and the impossible.

Shute's fascination with the mechanical, and especially with aircraft and piloting, takes central focus as every event somehow wraps itself around that core. Even though I have no particular knowledge of this field, other than the lore that comes through culture and fiction, I could feel the way the subject gripped him and dominated his story. Some of his fervor was contagious enough to hold my attention even after it began to wear on me.

The story itself is one of personal drama, love and loss, and eventual reconciliation with life as it is. The predictable ending is nonetheless moving and in its own way satisfying.

I chose this novel because it is one of the few Shutes that are available at my library and just about the last one that I hadn't already read. I still fail to see the significance of the title, a line from a poem by Rupert Brooke, which by the marketing practices of today would signal an entirely different type of reading matter. If it weren't for the author's name, I would never have touched a book with a sentimental-sounding title like this.

I'm giving it only three stars because the technical content does overwhelm the story, but it's still a good Shute treatment of unknown private lives that run deep. ( )

Review That supreme storyteller, Nevil Shute The Times Shute was a brilliant storyteller and terrific example for any writer Express Nevil Shute made me yearn for a faithful, plodding, Shute-type of man. I imagined us trekking across the Australian outback, finding a run-down hamlet, and then transforming it together until death or flood parted us The Times Product Description John Pascoe, a retired military flyer and commercial pilot, has crashed on a remote Tasmania mountain while attempting a rescue. Another pilot and friend, Ronnie Clark, volunteers to rescue the injured flyer. Through strange dreams that appear to Clark we glimpse Pascoe's past family life with its secrets. ( )

When colour goes home into the eyes,
And lights that shine are shut again
With dancing girls and sweet birds' cries
Behind the gateways of the brain;
And that no-place which gave them birth, hall close
The rainbow and the rose:-

Still may Time hold some golden space
Where I'll unpack that scented store
Of song and flower and sky and face,
And count, and touch, as a mother, who
Has watched her children all the rich day through,
Sits, quiet-handed, in the fading light,
When children sleep, ere night

John Pascoe must have created something like a record for a pilot in civil aviation, because he went on flying a DC-6B across the Pacific from Sydney to Vancouver as a senior captain of AusCan Airways till he was sixty years old.
