There’s something strangely fascinating in watching the world unravel. One day triidu strange light appears on the sky trifjdu maybe a comet? The Bowie Book Club: But only because I am an overly religious prude!

Bill is naturally uncomfortable with the idea, but nowhere near as uncomfortable as he should be. The genre is at its best or purest when the characters struggle against, but eventually succumb to, their inevitable destruction. I review regularly at brightbeautifulthings.

Den Trifidů

I don’t know what my deal is with these post-apocalyptic yarns. The Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham. How can we build a new life? The worst, or most jarring, part of it is the highly dubious display of sexual poitics, mo You know, I was going to give this a two, but it really started to grow on me.

The beginning of the end is a strange thing for me. This was my third Wyndham book, and although I preferred it to The Chrysalidsit didn’t come close to the enjoyment I felt reading The Midwich Cuckoos sadly. It sounds an exciting premise and I’ll give Wyndham credit – it’s visionary bio-warfare stuff. The book resembles nothing so much as the modern zombie film, in terms of threat and range of characters. I could feel the terror of it – the terror of walking on a knife’s edge and falling – and keep falling.

This novel is equal parts silly, unrealistic and interesting. I know it was a short novel but I feel it could have been shorter. Our protagonist, Bill, is lucky enough to still have his sight, and he quickly teams up with Josella and together they try to navigate this new reality. I was right there, smack in the middle of a post apocalyptic disaster.

Return to Book Page. Killer plants that can walk? I listened to the audiobook, which is a full cast dramatization complete with weird psychedelic music. The people retaining their sight are quite a bit more levelheaded than one would expect for the apocalypse, and they work more or less systematically through the problems of survival.

The story is narrated in the first person by Bill Masen, a young biologist in charge of growing triffids, a new species developed by Soviet Russia under great secrecy which later spread all over the world while a plane carrying a box of stolen seeds was shot down.

Wyndham is an engaging writer but this is pretty silly stuff.

It really isn’t anymore. As the story progressed, the writing didn’t dance as much. With far less focus on the walking cannibalistic plants than the popular memory retains, this story is the antithesis of World War Z: It showed its age, as everything eventually does I guess. Others attempt to steal the triffids for commercial gain. My husband saw me reading it and remembered seeing the movie. Three and a half stars.

What can Deh do about it? In fact, unless in the hands of a skilled author, it can very well become cliche. It is surely the best sci-fi thriller I’ve read since I first discovered Wells’s The War of the Worlds, the crucial precursor with which this novel is constantly striving to surpass. The sexism is equally hard to swallow. However, losing their sight is only the first of their problems.

And I want you to sleep with other women too. Most of them have scarcely been blind for more than a day or two, they have no idea whether the condition is permanent, and Wyndham seems oblivious to the fact that the blind can live fully trigidu and happy lives.

After trying a number of careers, including farming, law, commercial art and advertising, he started writing short stories in But parts of this really dragged, and it was nearly the end of the book before things got truly ominous.

Also, there was always the danger of a lethal war, much more terrible than the previous two, where the survival of humanity was not an option. As Bill and a few other remaining sighted people struggle to survive and escape the city, they realize that the triffids—walking, chittering plants with a lethal sting—are the real threat.

I was struck by the way Wyndham interwove ideas with the plot, but then realized that was the way it was done in most of the s sci fi I have read. This time civilisation is destroyed by a bunch of genetically engineered plants!

Though the opening is one that has seen recreated many times, it was is very, very effective in this book.
