The Thirty-nine Steps

by John Buchan

43 ratings, 18 reviews

Richard Hannay’s boredom is soon relieved when the resourceful engineer is caught up in a web of secret codes, spies, and murder on the eve of WWI. This exciting action-adventure story was the inspiration for Alfred Hitchcock’s 1939 classic film of the same name. John Buchan (1875-1940) was Governor General of Canada and a popular novelist. Although condemned by some for anti-Semitic dialog in The Thirty-Nine Steps, his character’s sentiments do not represent the view of the author who was identified in Hitler’s Sonderfahndungsliste (special search list) as a “Jewish sympathiser.”

Excellent book, first of a series of three. Catches ones interest from first paragraph ... difficult to stop listening to. Reader did a wonderful job. Highly recommend, both men & women.
