WORLD'S END

There is nothing conspicuously new in this story of two inconspicuous Londoners and their fight against social unrest, unemployment, the menace of war -- but there is sympathy, reality, at times acute perception in the presentation. One shares the thoughts and emotions and convictions of the characters. The story is a triangle, created because of the husband's resentment and inferiority in the face of his unemployment and his wife's employment. The denouement with his gesture of reestablishing his faith in himself is a bit melodramatic. The value of the story lies mainly in the author's success in making unspectacular people and events come alive.
