Synopsis

The most famous catastrophe novel of the twentieth century, John Wyndham’s The Day of the Triffids, published as a Penguin Essential for the first time. ‘When a day that you happen to know is Wednesday starts off by sounding like Sunday, there is something seriously wrong somewhere.’ When a freak cosmic event renders most of the Earth’s population blind, Bill Masen – one of the lucky few to keep his sight – finds himself trapped in a London jammed with sightless mobs who prey on those who can still see. But another menace stalks blind and sighted alike. With nobody to stop them the Triffids – walking carnivorous plants with lethal stingers – rise up as humanity stumbles and falls…


I remember watching a fabulous TV version of this a few years back staring Eddie Izzard (having googled it apparently it was all the way back in 2009!). At the time I thought, I bet this is a great book. Did I read it? Nope.

It appeals to the dystopian science fan in me so I look forward to this making its way up my TBR list.
