Read full description of the books Trustee from the Toolroom:Oh my, I did like this. It is light, but cute and fun and will make you smile. I certainly do recommend it.
So what is this about? On the surface it is about a Mr. Ordinary, an unpretentious little guy, but he is honest and hardworking. He is kind. He is happy with little. He doesn't need a big fancy house or a flashy job or fancy clothes. It is an adventure story too. Travel on airplanes and boats - a trip that you would not imagine!
There is a peculiar characteristic to this book. The details. Nevil Shute was an aeronautics engineer. You can tell. The book is filled with detailed descriptions of machines and mechanical gadgets - for airplanes, for boats, for lumber mills. Parts of machines - coil winders and plate fittings and gear boxes and hydraulic jacks and roller chains and sprockets and lathes and heat transfer gizmos and…. I don't know what all these things are but they sure make the story told feel thoroughly authentic. Yet you are not confused. You do understand what is going one through all the jumble of details.
So do all the details bore you? No, because the message conveyed is about people. The message conveyed is so simple and so obvious, but one we often forget. The scenarios drawn are not believable, but they will make you smile.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Frank Muller. He reads pretty darn quickly. He lavishly impersonates; let's say exaggerates the different characters. The Scott sounds very Scottish, the American very American, the women sweet, the dumb guys sounds a bit like a moron. Still this is all kind of appropriate because it makes you smile even more. It is funny because Jack, the one who is supposed to be so stupid....well, is he really? The book andthe narration will make you smile. The two fit each other.
This book is fun. The story is cute. I guarantee it will put a smile on your face. Do you need to smile? Go read it!
