I found 'The Day of the Triffids" a great read, easy to follow with a awsome storyline. Giant, man eating, walking plants roaming the earth while the human population has been blinded by a strange meteor shower. It was a storyline that had me hooked from the start. The story never actually finishes leaving space for your own imagination to create an ending. i would suggest this book to anyone that enjoys science fiction and related genres.

Following the introduction of a blindness epidemic brought on, supposedly, by the appearance of a meteor shower, England and the entire world are now at the mercy of the triffids, plants created through genetic engineering that have helped humankind profit off of them until mutations in the species caused them to become undesirable. More of a cozy catastrophe than a post-apocalyptic novel, The Day of the Triffids is amazingly written by John Wyndham, one of the greatest authors England has ever produced and this novel showcases his skills brilliantly. A wonderful find for science fiction fans and horror fans alike.

Written in the early days of science fiction, Day of the Triffids suffers from lack of editing. Wyndham's final conclusion, that helping people should be weighed against self-interest, especially if those people are blind, is something I ultimately disagree with. Still, Triffids is a unique book and worth reading.

A very fast read, well-written book. At times it can get confusing, but it all came together in the end.
