Richard Hannay finds a corpse in his flat, and becomes involved in a plot by spies to precipitate war and subvert British naval power. The resourceful victim of a manhunt, he is pursued by both the police and the ruthless conspirators. The Thirty-Nine Steps is a seminal chase thriller, rapid and vivid. It has been widely influential and frequently dramatised: the film directed by Alfred Hitchcock became a screen classic.

    " Despite its alleged importance in setting the template for various kinds of adventure fiction, I thought this was a tedious yarn with an irksomely smug central character. "

    " I really loved this when I was about 12. It seems a bit non-PC now, but for old times' sake ... "

    " Maybe because I have seen three or four film versions, but there was not much tension for me while reading the book. Still three stars. The book is well written and now - at last - I know the real ending. "

    " I bought this book when I saw the play on Broadway several years ago. It is a fast and active read, fun and well written. I'd like to read more by Buchan. "

    " pretty exciting but the ending didnt match all the buildup. I was kinds of surprised at the abrupt ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Evangeline | 6/7/2011

    " I'm not usually a fan of political thrillers, but I enjoyed this one. I found it to be exciting and suspenseful.

    3.5 stars, but deserves to be rounded up rather than down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teryl | 5/28/2011

    " One of my favourite books of all time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon | 5/21/2011

    " One of the first books in the spy genre, and it's a neat one. Reads like a contemporary book despite being written in 1914. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danielroffle | 5/20/2011

    " Yeah it's a bit repetitive, but it did introduce the expression "my hat!" as a sign of amazement to my vocabulary, and there are plenty of lolsome Dreaded Hun moments too. "
