Round the Bend is a 1951 novel by Nevil Shute. It tells the story of Constantine "Connie" Shaklin, an aircraft engineer who founds a new religion transcending existing religions based on the merit of good work. It deals with racism, including the White Australia policy, and also with the importance of private enterprise.
But Nevil Shute is not a difficult author to read and I am sure my friends would enjoy this book.
Finished reading Nevil Shute's "Round the Bend" the other day finally. Round the Bend is based largely in the middle east, in settings I hadn't heard of and aspects of cultures I was not particularly familiar with. It's taken a while and I haven't always been in the mood to read it but it is a fine piece of work overall. What originally drew me to it was the aviation aspect and the romantic, adventurous notion of someone setting up an airline in a foreign land in the time period. There are an abundance of details about characters and places, maybe slightly too much for my taste at times. However I've learned about aspects of another time and of another world from reading it.
JAMES ELROY FLECKER MAJOR HEREWARD was adamant that Connie had to leave the Persian Gulf. He said that I could see the Resident if I liked, but it was obvious that they had made their minds up.
JAMES ELROY FLECKER MAJOR HEREWARD was adamant that Connie had to leave the Persian Gulf de it pretty clear, too, that if they had any trouble with me they’d kick me out too. They didn’t seem to have a lot of use for any of us, and yet, I think we’d done a useful job while we were there. Perhaps it would have been better if I’d gone into the officers’ mess, as I could have done long before.
