Unique Sci-Fi writer
am 4. März 2017
John Wyndham wrote several unique Sci-Fi books, made into movies good, bad r ugly. That is how I found Him through several of the films one of which is "The Day of the Triffids."
I find the writing unique and intriguing. At first H.G. Wells appeared to write that way but later you can see his politics creeping through. John Wyndham may have an agenda as he describes human nature in this book but it enhances and does not overwhelm the story.
The story is of course a, "what would you do in a situation", which is pretty much the end of the world as we know it. The book has a more plausible story than the movies. It is more economical than terrestrial as displayed in the movies.
Readers may have a wide range of what they like or dislike about the story but all agree on the author as well worth reading.
Wyndham also wrote "The Midwich cuckoos." Another end of world scenario.
Just a warning do not leave this book anywhere near your house plants.
