User Review  - jerry-book - LibraryThing

On the Beach by Shute was a much better treatment of this theme. Here we have a nuclear end of the world with the survivors being an American Destroyer and a Russian sub. They search for Eden and find it in the South Pacific and then it is blown up for inane reasons. Read full review
