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 . . .

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.
