In the end I had to turn to the Index for information about Lanaldo. I found it on the map then. It was one of a dozen very small towns up in the hills, rather more behind Ventimiglia than Mentone. That map was on too small a scale. I had taken on the job of re-arranging the library one winter, so that I knew my way about

Nevil Shute Norway was born on 17 January 1899 in Ealing, London. After attending the Dragon School and Shrewsbury School, he studied Engineering Science at Balliol College, Oxford. He worked as an aeronautical engineer and published his first novel, Marazan, in 1926. In 1931 he married Frances Mary Heaton and they went on to have two daughters.

So Disdained is Nevil Shute’s second book, written in 1927 whilst he was working on the gigantic R100 Airship at Howden, Yorkshire. He was the airship’s mathematician/chief calculator, working during the day with the great engineer, Barnes Wallis. For relaxation, Shute started writing novels during the evenings.

Nevil Shute Norway (17 January 1899 – 12 January 1960) was an English novelist and aeronautical engineer who spent his later years in Australia. He used his full name in his engineering career and Nevil Shute as his pen name to protect his engineering career from inferences by his employers (Vickers) or fellow engineers that he was not a serious person or from potential negative publicity in connection with his novels, which included On the Beach and A Town Like Alice.

One of my favorite authors' finest novels! Who might we meet as we drive the road home? Someone we knew when in the Service of our country only five years earlier during the War? In the days of post war England, espionage was a serious matter! Now, to be re-acquainted one dark stormy night with a former pilot who is now attempting to abandon a powerful aeroplane under suspicious reasons & on the land of this Agents' employer, is serious matter. To whom do the Agents' loyalties lie & under what instincts might determine the direction of those choices as the suspense unfolds? The story is woven masterfully by one who lived through those times, served his country with distinction and left the gift of his narration for us to enjoy.

While I enjoyed "So Disdained," there were a number of instances where I was so annoyed by the main character's poor decisions, I almost wanted to look away from the page (just as I feel when a TV character is about to humiliate himself). The protagonist seemed too intelligent to get himself into such a mess; indeed, he seemed to put himself at risk out of sheer boredom and lack of imagination. There were surely other ways to assist his friend that would not perpetuate a disaster (or amount to treason). The book - and its "hero" - lack the character development shown in later works by a more mature Shute.

My husband and I both love Nevil Shute's novels. We have been trying to get as many as we can, and since I was totally unfamiliar with the title I ordered it--just to see. We both found it an absorbing story, well-written and thoughtful. it is not so polished as his later novels, but it has the same strengths: characters who are basically good people, though flawed; people who struggle to do what is right in their view; people who are true to their values. I think it is a worthwhile read.

Although an early work, this is one of Shute's better works; in my humble opinion, anyway.
I read every one of his books many years ago while I was at boarding school; escapism at it's best. However, I think this was either not published in the series by Penguin or I somehow overlooked it. Either way, I'm glad I found it!
A must-read for any Shute fan.

Can't beat a Nevil Shute book, gripping, suspenseful, I can't put him down. This one is another example of a well researched book, if you're up for a bit of adventure and no sex or bad lan guage, Shute's your man.

As the author's note tells us, this was the second book that he had published. It is a good enough story, but clearly his style and ability for linking the different elements of his story was still under development. It does not have that "can't put it down" quality that his later books have. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys stories of this part of the 20th century where the differences in the British social classes was still evident.

I like this book and it is written in a sort of old-fashioned English novel way. The story was very interesting and unexpected because I take today's technology for granted. A good read on a plane (well, maybe not..).
Have read all Neville Shute books, some two or three times. He is my favorite author.
