  1. David David says:

    A handful of short stories, of various quality The one where we spend most of our time inside the head of an older man with his young wartime bride, well, maybe it just doesn t translate well The ship which worked so hard to stay afloat reminds me of his other works It was interesting but not too memorable The stories were pleasant I don t regret reading them, but I wouldn t make extreme efforts to seek them out Unless I missed something.


  2. Andrew Herbert Andrew Herbert says:

    Monsarrat is an inconsistent story teller This book embodies that The first titular story is quite good Dramatic and different from other WW2 British naval stories The second story was poor Perhaps we are too removed from that time The last story was excellent and unique.

    I needed an engrossing paperback for the 2007 Thanksgiving train ride so I grabbed this one, a relic of my teenage interest in World War II England The title story there are three novellas in the book is highly engrossing, the tale of a torpedoed ship limping back to port with most of the crew killed the second, Leave Cancelled, is interesting mostly as a dated attempt at getting inside a moment in a new marriage, written in the second person from husband to wife the third, Heavy Rescue, I needed an engrossing paperback for the 2007 Thanksgiving train ride so I grabbed this one, a relic of my teenage interest in World War II England The title story there are three novellas in the book is highly engrossing, the tale of a torpedoed ship limping back to port with most of the crew killed the second, Leave Cancelled, is interesting mostly as a dated attempt at getting inside a moment in a new marriage, written in the second person from husband to wife the third, Heavy Rescue, is an interesting account of life in London at the start of the Blitz as told from the point of view of an out of work WWI veteran who finds new meaning in training to rescue bombing victims Monsarrat is an accomplished writer if you like this sort of subject matter

    An interesting book very fast read and enjoyable set during world war two Spoiler Alert The ship gets attacked by a German U boat Its an interesting book if you are into reading about ships captains or things happening during war and a story of survival I could see Tom Hanks doing this if it was to be a movie as the captain of course after all he has already been captain phillips and sully so why not this british guy
