Keith Stewart, a retiring and ingenious engineer, could not have been happier in his little house in the shabby London suburb of Ealing. There he invented the mini-motor, the six-volt generator, and the tiny Congreve clock. Then a chain of events sweeps him into deep waters and leads him to his happiest discovery yet.

    " One of my favorite books of all time. The most uplifting, inspiring, admirable "everyday" hero that I can recall in literature. "

    " I think that's enough Nevil Shute for me. This book was a good story, considering I don't know anything about (nor care to learn anything about) sailing, model making/engineering, or the lumber industry. And I actually find those things boring. So bravo, Nevil Shute, for getting me interested in a story that had pretty much no way in for me. Except maybe the idea that people who love what they do can be satisfied with a small life and the chance to keep doing what they love. Or that you don't know the effects you're having on people, and being kind can result in kindness done to you in circumspect, unpredictable ways. So be good at what you do, and share that with others. I can get behind that. But still no real likeable women characters. They sometimes get to drive the plot forward, but mostly not. They're helpless or funny or tragic, but always a sideline. Sigh. "

    " A nice quiet little book with heart. They don't write books like this anymore or at least not often. "

    " Little know Shute. I listened to it in a Blackstone Audio, read with sonorous voice. Great detail, the main character with his little model engine, parlaying that into air trips around the world. "
