Response to lagomorph777 (Original post)

6. As a teen, I read the novel and was taken by its descripton of people facing their fates.

The scenarios in which the characters found themselves saddened me when I read the book. Over the years, particularly when debates about nuclear arsenals have made the news, I have thought back about the haunting vision which Nevil Shute gave us.
