The Day Of The Triffids

Even at the end you wanted more. It is a thrilling story about the triffids and completely different from the film of the same name. At times you are on the edge of your chair and want to fast forward but can't because you will miss vital parts of the story!! Fantastic read.

its an unlikely premise, zombie plants take over when an err something makes virtually everyone blind. However its no less likely than many sci fi premises and it does a reasonable job of societal breakdown, small group under attack. This a pleasing 1968 bbc radio version.
