Description

The classic postapocalyptic thriller with ';all the reality of a vividly realized nightmare' (The Times, London).

Triffids are odd, interesting little plants that grow in everyone's garden. Triffids are no more than mere curiositiesuntil an event occurs that alters human life forever.

What seems to be a spectacular meteor shower turns into a bizarre, green inferno that blinds everyone and renders humankind helpless. What follows is even stranger: spores from the inferno cause the triffids to suddenly take on a life of their own. They become large, crawling vegetation, with the ability to uproot and roam about the country, attacking humans and inflicting pain and agony.

William Masen somehow managed to escape being blinded in the inferno, and now after leaving the hospital, he is one of the few survivors who can see. And he may be the only one who can save his species from chaos and eventual extinction...

With more than a million copies sold, The Day of the Triffids is a landmark of speculative fiction, and ';an outstanding and entertaining novel' (Library Journal).

';A thoroughly English apocalypse, it rivals H.G. Wells in conveying how the everyday invaded by the alien would feel. No wonder Stephen King admires Wyndham so much.' Ramsey Campbell, author of The Overnight

';One of my all-time favorite novels. It's absolutely convincing, full of little telling details, and that sweet, warm sensation of horror and mystery.' Joe R.Lansdale, author of Edge of Dark Water
