    The local fisheries and oyster beds are still thriving. Sal discovers that Richard has spread the secret of the beach when she picks up the map he drew for Zeph and Sammy. And I am uneasy about Dwight's refusal to see that Connecticut and his family have been destroyed. However powerful, On the Beach is not perfect.

    Osborne takes his suicide pill while sitting in his beloved racing car. Survivor's guilt, of course, and a coping mechanism that lets him, the active male, go out and confront the nasty world. An American submarine pulls into the nearest port, captained by Dwight Towers. Thanks for all of your support! Now fully aware of what Sal is willing to do to protect the beach, they decide to spike the food for the party and escape on the raft that the doomed backpackers used.

    The few remaining healthy members struggle to nurse the sick residents back to health. With hope that someone has survived in the contaminated regions, one of the last American nuclear submarines, USS Scorpion, placed by its captain, Commander Dwight Towers, under Australian naval command, On the Beach book ordered to sail north from its port of refuge in Melbourne Australia's southernmost major mainland city to contact whoever is sending the signal. Due to Christo's grave wounds, he requires Jed's presence in the camp, because only Jed has the medical knowledge to tend to him. Richard, having never liked Bugs' arrogant nature, instigates a heated argument with him in front of the whole group, which leads to a division of the community into several cliques. Christo chooses to stay, not wanting to go near the water after his encounter with the shark. But the two diverge quite drastically in their approaches, each as devastating by implication.

My favorite on the list is by Charlaine Harris. He subsequently spends his time sitting in a dug-out hole on the beach and not talking to anyone, barely accepting food and water.

Palpable despair makes the book unforgettable, if only in what it says about us as a race. Main characters[ edit ] Richard — a young English traveller and the main narrator of the novel.

When Mary Holmes becomes very ill, Peter administers a lethal injection to their daughter. Shute brings it off. First, while a secret is On the Beach book piece of On the Beach book that we bury, it can quickly become the prevailing force shaping our identity and governing our actions in the world.

His heroes tended to be middle class: solicitors, doctors, accountants, bank managers, engineers. Pieter M.

Synopsis 1 Summaries Vicenarian Richard travels to Thailand and finds himself in possession of a On the Beach book map. They are friends with Moira Davidson, a young woman who seems bent on drinking herself into oblivion. Events take a turn for the worse when Richard is chosen to accompany Sal to the mainland to acquire supplies, where Richard is inadvertently reunited with the American surfers who are preparing to go to the beach with two girls.

By chance, Keaty and Jed end up working new jobs in the same building, although for different companies; similar to how they both happened to stay in the same guest house years before they first met at the beach. There were a lot of wrong turns along the way, literally, as we made it our mission to try each and every road that seemed promising.

Many of the stories are introduced by a narrator who is not a character in the story. By the early s, the stability of American urban domestic life had been under threat for years. At one point, however, he makes it clear to Moira that he knows his family is almost certainly dead, and he asks her if she thinks he is insane for acting as if they were still alive.

Time flies, both for the readers and the characters, and after the experience both won't be the same. The farmers threaten all of them with guns, as they believe the beach dwellers invited the recent arrivals.

Notably, the novel does not portray any form of nuclear winter. Gregorio — Spanish; member of Richard's fishing detail.

The prevalence of the ocean in this story is not simply atmospheric; it is central to the symbolism. Where there is a romantic element, sex is referred to only obliquely. When they first arrive on the island, they come across an enormous marijuana plantation guarded by local farmers armed with AK assault rifles, where they barely manage to evade detection.

After a brief stop at Pearl Harborthe remaining submariners return to Australia to live out what little time they have left. It has been a year and one month since their departure from Thailand, and Richard has returned home to England.

This is an exciting debut novel, dark and sinister, but also funny and laced with exciting cultural references. The cannabis farmers — A small group of Thai farmers armed with assault rifles, who live and maintain a large illegal cannabis field on the far side of the island, presumably exporting it to the mainland for sale.
