"The Day of the Triffids" by John Wyndham (1951) - REVIEW

Goodday and welcome to
"The B.B. Weekly Review"

SPOILER ALERT: This review may contain some slight spoilers.
Review: "The Day of the Triffids" by John Wyndham is a strangely moving novel. It is also very encouraging as you see normal people continue to persevere even after the near destruction of the human race. It is very true to life and compelling. Such a devestated and diffferent world is hard to imagine, but Wyndham makes it appear very real and (in a strange way) almost desirable.
The book follows the life and struggles of a man who can see in a world where everyone is suddenly blind and man-killing plants roam freely, causing mass destruction and chaos. Survival becomes a daily struggle and hard moral choices must be made. *Spoiler: It is very "fantastic" throughout, until you realize that the reason for the destrction is due to humanities rising knowledge and increased weapons research: self inflicted destruction of humanity.*
I enjoyed every minute of this book as my husband and I read it out loud.

 My Rating: 5/5
