9780140285536: The Day of the Triffids (Essential Penguin)

The triffids are a monstrous species of stinging plant; they walk, they talk, they dominate the world. The narrator of this novel wakes up in hospital to find that, by missing the end of the world, he has survived to witness a new world. But the new world that awaits him is fantastic and horrific.

Review:

* I had forgotten just how real this 1951 classic seems - and am impressed by how eerily relevant it now appears. The Observer * ...read by Alex Jennings, the clear-cut narration lends itself well to Bill's creeping sense of doom. The Bookseller * Jennings carries all the characters with consummate skill. audiobooksreview.co.uk * Remains fresh and disturbing in an entirely unexpected way. The Guardian
