The End of It : A Novel (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The End of It: A Novel On this night in February the troopship worked through the wilderness of sea alone. Worked hard, heaving and rolling. Inside they waited, silent, hanging on, in fear. God what a sea. Where was the land? Had the world all turned to water? A big fast liner with no escort, no convoy, hurry ing with no lights into darkness. To them inside it was as if the sea had tilted high up to touch the sky, as if the world would turn over. A sea? - it was more like a ﬂood. The Flood. Alone now, no one else on the earth. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
