Requim for a wren by Nevil Shute
There were no civilian boats or yachts afloat upon the south coast at that tume, but the river was full of landing craft, box-like, grey, painted things of steel with ramps to let down at the bow, with diesel engines thumping away inside them to charge batteries as they lay moored bow and stern to the buoys, with white ensigns drooping at the stern, with bored ratings fishing over the side and staring at us as we threaded our way past.
I love how that sentence paints a picture so nicely. At first I struggled to get into this book but now I am really enjoying it. I have read "A town like Alice" by this author previously and really liked so I thought I would give another one of his a try. It is not the most "exciting" book but it is has a nice flow to it and it is interesting - showing a very different time realistically (or so I believe).
