    Paperbackç Wild Harbour eBook ì wild ebok, harbour download, Wild Harbour eBook35 stars An interesting novel that becomes a gripping read for the last third of the book The book was first published in 1936 The novel is set in the Scottish highlands in 1944 A couple Hugh and Terry decide to retreat from their home to the remote Scottish highlands preferring to live with nature rather than be involved with fighting that has erupted Whilst not detailed the reader is given to believe that world disorder has occurred For some months Hugh and Terry learn to survive in the wilderness and become content with their chosen lifestyle however things change when men with rifles appear close to their cave home Hugh’s pacifism is confronted with an encroaching war

    Paperbackç Wild Harbour eBook ì wild ebok, harbour download, Wild Harbour eBookAn alternative to bone spursWhen it looks as though war is inevitable Hugh and his wife Terry decide that he will not fight – that killing is wrong especially when the reasons for it seem so obscure So they decide to flee into the wild highland country of the north of Scotland making their home in a cave to wait the conflict out Hugh knows how to hunt and poach while Terry has a full range of country skills in preparing and preserving food so they are better euipped than most to survive But in the distance they can hear the guns of war and they seem to be coming nearerThis is issued as part of the British Library’s Science Fiction Classics series but it doesn’t seem to me to sit comfortably there First published in 1936 and set in a then future of 1944 I suppose it’s that speculative element that allows it to be categorised as science fiction but in reality it’s of a survival adventure with the bulk of the book being a man versus nature story

    Paperbackç Wild Harbour eBook ì wild ebok, harbour download, Wild Harbour eBookNOTE to readers Skip the introduction to this edition until you've read the novel Also my reflections below may contain spoilersAlthough I've never seen Wild Harbour mentioned in any list of science fiction it really belongs to the genre of post apocalyptic stories Ian MacPherson imagined the next war that was obviously looming in 1936 bringing the total collapse of society as the in

    Paperbackç Wild Harbour eBook ì wild ebok, harbour download, Wild Harbour eBookI had next to no information about this book when I picked it up apart from it being on the 1001 list Its theme came as a surprise I have to admire the anticipation factor put into it I felt the emphasis was too much on the couple's relationship and feelings even if it was not mushy in any way and too little on the social and cultural impact of their historical turn point A good read all in all but I'd have gone for a little pragmatism

    Paperbackç Wild Harbour eBook ì wild ebok, harbour download, Wild Harbour eBookStarted out like Swiss Family Robinson set in the Scottish highlands and then took a very dark turn into an exploration of the barely hidden brute lurking inside the civilized human and the lengths to which frightened humans will go This was on a best books about humans in the wilderness list but I was expecting a conventional struggle to live in harmony with the land narrative Unsettling and relentless

    Paperbackç Wild Harbour eBook ì wild ebok, harbour download, Wild Harbour eBookAn enjoyable tale told mostly in the wilds of the Scottish highlands with a husband and wife doing their best to survive in a cave after anticipating civilisation's collapse in town centres The second I've read in the British Library's Science Fiction Classics series which include useful introductions providing context to mid century authors that might otherwise have fallen into obscurity

    Paperbackç Wild Harbour eBook ì wild ebok, harbour download, Wild Harbour eBookThis was one of the most haunting books I have ever read The setting in the Highlands of Scotland adds to the general feeling of oppression and futility felt by the main characters and reader

    Paperbackç Wild Harbour eBook ì wild ebok, harbour download, Wild Harbour eBookThe central character of this novel is a perfect illustration of P G Wodehouse’s famous saying that it is never hard to differentiate a Scotsman with a grievance from a ray of sunshine Hugh is such an unrelentingly miserable dour git that it is a wonder why his long suffering and saintly wife puts up with him He does freuently tell her how much he loves her in hangdog lachrymose fashion but then almost immediately reverts to type as an evil tempered Jeremiah who is convinced like Private Fraser in Dad’s Army “we’re all doomed” You can almost see him rolling his eye

    Paperbackç Wild Harbour eBook ì wild ebok, harbour download, Wild Harbour eBookGiven that I like a good outdoorsy survival story I thought for sure that I would like Ian MacPherson's Wild Harbour but it really didn't appeal to me It's interesting from a historical perspective as it was written in 1936 and predicted a major world war was coming the survival story itself wasn't all that enjoyableThe novel follows Terry and Hugh a couple who decide to head to the hills and live in a cave instead of allowing Hugh to be drafted to fight in the war The big problem with this book definitely lies with the characters who were m
