    " Nevil Shute is a great story teller. Greatly enjoyed this story of oil exploration in Australia - similar to what is happening in North Dakota now. A modern western set in Australia. "

He used his full name, Nevil Shute Norway, in his engineering career, and Nevil Shute as his pen name to protect his engineering career from any potential negative publicity in connection with his novels. He is most well-known for his novels On the Beach, a novel about post–nuclear war which is taught in high schools around the country and which was twice made into a movie, and A Town Like Alice, which was filmed as well as serialized for Australian television and dramatized for BBC radio, winning a Sony Award in 1998.
