But another menace stalks blind and sighted alike., With nobody to stop their spread the Triffids, mobile plants with lethal stingers and carnivorous appetites, seem set to take control.The Day of the Triffids is perhaps the most famous catastrophe novel of the twentieth century and its startling imagery of desolate streets and lurching, lethal plant life retains its power to haunt today.

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)

Book Description:

The post-apocalyptic British sci-fi classic.
