    One thought on “Stephen Morris”

    1. Terrific adventures stories about the early days of aviation, and how the question of livelihood can affect romance right from his first works, Mr Shute showed his calibre that makes him figure among the first ranks of gifted story-tellers.

    2. An enjoyable early work of Shute's. Not really his best plot-wise, but good escapism. It did make me want to be a pilot in the 20's.

    3. Stephen Morris was Nevil Shute's first literary effort in the form of a work of fiction. It is actually described as a novella due to its relatively short length of just over 100 pages. However, it is more accurately the first half of duel novellae, in that it is continued in the companion short novel called Pilotage. Stephen Morris, the character, in Stephen Morris the novella is young man who came out of World War I as quite a good pilot and who wants to break into the technical part of the av [...]

    4. "Stephen Morris" and "Pilotage" are two of Nevil Shute's first attempts at novels, and were not published until after his death. The two manuscripts were edited very lightly and published together as a single narrative the following year. Considering that these were first novels, they are surprisingly good. There's some roughness in the characters' development and dialog, and the background information of time and place are sketchy. But that's to be expected in an early work.As I read this one I [...]

    5. These two novellas are about young pilots in the early days of flying and young love. Stephen Morris breaks his engagement with Helen, the love of his life because he needs to get a job to support her. He joins a flying company, but it's not an easy way to make a good living. He meets Rawdon who is manufacturing planes, and joins his design team and becomes the test pilot. He thinks Helen has married someone else, but still dreams about her. In Pilotage, Denniston plans to go to China to work in [...]

    6. Set right after WWI in England with the financial slump after the war. I enjoyed just the right touch of mathematics in the book about the beginnings of aeroplane design and flying, as well as some excellent human interest (both friendships and romance) and some lovely descriptions of the countryside and the coast. The second part of the book 'Pilotage' dealt with sailing and boats as well as flying, with most of the same characters as in the first half, and again a proper and interesting propor [...]

    7. This is the 1961 Lancer Books edition (73-435). It has 224 pages. Cover price was 60 cents. In the Foreward, Thayer Hobson details how the two stories were some of Nevil Shute's first attempts at writing. They were not published prior to his death in 1960 however. Stephen Morris and Pilotage are a bit unwieldy compared to Slide Rule and other, later works but everything that made Shute one of the most well-read and popular authors of his day is still in full evidence.Snag a copy where you can. D [...]

    8. I'm not a big aviation buff but I did enjoy reading this book about a young man, the titular Stephen Morris, who makes a risky career decision and ends up on the front lines of the burgeoning aviation industry in Great Britain. I think the only reason that I was able to stick with the book was that Shute doesn't go into a lot of mechanical details and has an interesting story supporting the book.

    9. Compared with many of his other books I found this somewhat dry and prodictable. The action was drawn out and the descriptions tedious. Having said all that I stuck with it and was rewarded by the final chapters of each story. This was his first book and it is perhapes difficult to assess in view of his later works.

    10. I usually love Nevil Shute, but this one didn't really do much for me. It lacked his usual twist it ended up being more of a set of bland love stories.
