Book Review: Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham - Reviewed by Sheepcoate (18 Feb 2012)
A all time classic apocalyptic book featuring giant man eating plants is worth a read by anyone.
Ofcourse I have heard of the story and watched many a re-make on TV, but the book despite its age, still manages to leave you spell bound and drawn in to the authors creativity.
There were some flaws as far as physics and dynamics of the triffids but overall very entertaining. The plot follows Bill Masen you awakes from the hospital after being temporarily, blinded fortunately he misses a meteor shower which renders most of the entire population blind. They are therefore left at the mercy of the Triffids.
Highly entertaining and recommended read.
