Hardcoverpages. Too much end of the world. The book resembles nothing so much as the modern zombie film, in terms of threat and range of characters. The creatures are more of a set-up to explore the psychological and social turmoil of a culture on a precarious cliff with little hope of survival.

Go find your woman while I mansplain to Ms. Wyndham was quite keen on destroying civilisation in his novels – in the Chrysalids nuclear war has wiped out most of the population. Lots of ellipses, random bouts of datedness, some triifdu dialogue Actually, this The most enlightening point tdifidu this novel is when a small group of survivors are trying to figure out what to do next.

When you think of Day of the Triffids, where does your mind go to? I trifidy to say the beginning really sets a tone. Still, an enjoyable, quick read for SF lovers. Because women love being made into slaves.

Den Trifidů

After a summary of their history, they barely feature in the first half of the novel, and when they do occur they are deliberately played down as an immediate threat.

I wanted to crawl under my bed. Ddn there won’t be any moral ambiguity about your leaving them. I also really like that it has not been changed as some publishers dothe language and spelling are of a different time.


Den Trifidů by John Wyndham (3 star ratings)

This book I think this might have been one of the later Wyndham novels, because it has incident, which makes it easier to read than, say The Kraken Wakes, where civilisation is destroyed by some nasty creatures who live in the deepest parts of the ocean but probably arrived from space.

Walking plants and blindness. You also hear dden screaming when a triffid attacks them and then you know they’re dead. The Days of the Triffids [Nov 5, ].

Written init is in some ways like a 19th century novel. I guess that is why so many creators copy it. If I recall, it was under their link for “Hidden Gems”. I don’t know what my deal is with these post-apocalyptic yarns. This one is very insightful, but less theoretical and obtuse than The Road. I remember the love, but not where I was at when I read them.

After serving in the civil Service and the Army during the war, he went back to writing. Xen we get a lot of unbelievable romance and regular survival story. Back then this was, I think, immensely groundbreaking and this novel helped pave the way for a lot of the apocalypse, survival fiction we have now.

Triffids are carnivorous, except they kill people first with a poisonous sting, then eat them when they are fully dead.

In fact, unless in the hands of a skilled author, it can very well become cliche. This is a good post-apocalyptic thriller that became very influential to the science fiction writers who followed.

They really only come into play as an explicitly malign perhaps even malevolent force in the final 30 or so pages, but since the reader has been clued in by the very title of the book, there is a remorseless inevitability to their gradual rise and ultimate control of the situation.


But this is complicated by the slow ascendancy of the triffids who, finally free from captivity, holds the advantage over a largely blind population – an advantage enhanced by their increased numbers. The triffids are actually a relatively minor plot point.

Den trifidů — Reader Q&A

Would I rather walk around blind and get eaten by a plant or do the day-glo shuffle in a nuclear holocaust? We never got concrete answers. Most people in the world have gone suddenly blind! Alien-like exotic plants that grow to about seven feet tall but what’s more, these plants can uproot themselves and kill with their poisonous stingers.

I did like the ending, even though it was rather rushed, but I’m pretty I drn won’t be picking up Night of the Triffi I liked how this started-there was more humor in the writing when the main character was crankily telling about his stay in the hospital. I also felt that Wyndham struggled to delineate the concepts of “sex” or “partnering” and “marriage” – his characters often confusing those concepts and using them interchangeably, despite their supposed beliefs about breeding up the population.

I was upset at points in the story with the characters and some of the choice they made. And when the whole world goes blind, well the triffids wake up, ready to kill and feast.

Moreover, this demon was invisible:
