The ending definitely picked up, with the threat being all too real, but for the most part I was just hoping for more.

I was a bit confused by the jumping back in time to tell us about the triffids, but recovered and was able to move on. The perfect example of what Orwell called the “good-bad book. I just felt the style very dry and overly descriptive – but then again this was the 50s. Overall this was an enjoyable Wyndham though, and I’m definitely going to still continue making my way through his bibliography. Our protagonist, Bill, is lucky enough to still have his sight, and he quickly teams up with Josella and together This novel is equal parts silly, unrealistic and interesting.

I could feel the terror of it – the terror of walking on a knife’s edge and falling – and keep falling. I trifiud the atmosphere of loss and dread was conveyed very well, and the story was exciting and well paced. The Day of the Triffids is exactly such a book.

At the end of the audiobook, the character dialogue just fades out and you’re not even sure if that’s the end of the story. This book’s portrayal of blindness is frightening. After trying a number of careers, including farming, law, commercial art and advertising, he started writing short stories in The gender roles are creakily antiquated, the tone bourgeoi The perfect example of what Orwell called the “good-bad book.

But it isn’t given a lot of thought. Because women love being made into slaves.


Den trifidů — Reader Q&A

Why had it happen? Triffids are carnivorous, except they kill people first with a poisonous sting, then eat them when they are fully dead. The worst, or most jarring, part of it is the highly dubious display of sexual poitics, moreso for being delivered apparently without irony.

Trivia About The Day of the Tr This novel is equal parts silly, unrealistic and interesting. 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.

The story is narrated in the first person by Bill Masen, a young biologist in charge of growing triffids, a new species developed by Soviet Russia under great secrecy which later spread all over the world while a plane carrying a box of stolen seeds was shot down. When Bill Masen wakes in the hospital to discover that everyone around him has gone blind overnight, he rightly assumes the world has ended. Does it have to be human? The premise is great – after strange lights in the sky one night render almost the entire population blind, Bill Masen one of the few people left with sight has to try and navigate a rapidly deteriorating world while trying to keep the Triffids at bay – carnivorous walking plants with a deadly sting that have taken over the world.

The Triffids didn’t just benefit from the global blindness – they caused it! Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. 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. Honestly, I feel like it wouldn’t take much for me to a let go of my human side.

And when the whole world goes blind, well the triffids wake up, ready to kill and feast.


Wyndham shows us a number of small groups of people, and their miniature new societies, exposing and challenging their assumptions about which of society’s rules are trifiduu important ones to survival. However, losing their sight is only the first of their problems.

I thoroughly enjoyed the coming chapters as well, though. Wyndham was quite keen on destroying civilisation in his novels – in trifiru Chrysalids nuclear war has wiped out most of the population. The difference being that this is the original.

In fact, unless in the trifkdu of a skilled a Post-apocalyptic fiction, now, has come of age. Lots of ellipses, random bouts of datedness, some awkward dialogue The world is in a state of panic, and those precious few who still have their sight intact are much sought after.

Parts of the story became political, which annoyed me. I see why it became a classic and how it influenced many later sci fi books. Post-apocalyptic fiction, now, has come of age. Sometimes, it was hard to visualize the world and in that respect, it would have been better if I had read the book rather than listen to the audiobook.

The world ended five minutes ago, bro. The gender roles are creakily antiquated, the tone bourgeois-genteel, and I can’t stress enough that the depiction of blindness is deeply offensive.

And I haven’t yet read about rtifidu pl The beginning of the end is a strange thing for me. Pretty good s science fiction.

What would happen if we missed a step?
