Review: The Chequer Board Set a few years after WWII, The Chequer Board traces the lives of four men and how their viewpoints on race relations change after the war. It is a surprisingly modern book and added to my respect for Nevil Shute.
Review: The Chequer Board Learning that he only has a year to live, John Turner sets out on a quest to find three men that he met in a hospital during the war. Along the way he learns of compassion, tolerance, and second chances.
Review: The Chequer Board Nevil Shute writes what he knows, which is a lot. Reading novels from the 40s and 50s is so nice, no modern crap...
Review: The Chequer Board Loved this!
Review: The Chequer Board This is my first Shute book and it was not what I expected. Not an exciting or twisting g tale but by the end you're well embedded in the life of the main character and I'm surprised to say I was sorry to come to the end.
Review: The Chequer Board An enjoyable read - wasn't an all-time favourite and would like to have given this a 3 1/2 as I enjoyed reading it but it wasn't something that gripped and compelled me to read at every opportunity.
