As you would expect from John Wyndham another excellent story that seems
quite well thought out. Since the novel is quite short (too short really) the
brief summary on the back gives almost all the plot away so don’t read it. Just
sit back and read the novel as it unfolds. In case like me you need to know
what the books basic premise is I will say that it is an expedition to an
island in order to create a new society.
