Summary

On the Isle of Wight, a colony of survivors wakes to a world plunged into darkness. Before long, the triffids, thought safely out of the way on the mainland, attack....
In John Wyndham’s classic best seller The Day of the Triffids the world has been overwhelmed by killer plants. As the novel ends, Wyndham’s narrator scientist Bill Masen is escaping, with his wife and four-year-old son, to the Isle of Wight where a small colony of survivors is holding out. Simon Clark’s sequel picks up the story 25 years on.
The survivors are safe, for the time being at least, on their island, where they have continued efforts to combat the triffids, while also striving in various ways to build a new civilization. Elsewhere in the world, similar colonies cling to survival, while the triffids persist in their attempts to destroy humanity.
One morning Bill Masen’s son, David, now grown up, wakes to a world plunged into darkness. Now, the triffids have an advantage over humanity.

I so wanted this to be great...

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

To those who are still wary of meteor showers I could not recommend this story because this is all it is, a story and not a great one.

What will your next listen be?

Probably a better alternate history book.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The father and son conversation about the human races future if when machinery Etc can no longer be maintained.

Was The Night of the Triffids worth the listening time?

As a story yes, as a relivant sequel, no. But lovers of the original would be tempted by its title.

Any additional comments?

Just too many fortunate events for our lead character to survive!
A poor spin off. Now I've listened to it, it would be difficult not to imagine any other evolution pathway. I'll just stick with the original.

a little unsatisfying

This book builds upon Day of the Triffids well but takes a more human oriented approach while the first book was more oriented toward the overall situation in the world and the growing trouble with Triffids. I found this book ended surprisingly soon and was a little unsatisfying in that way. It does progress through the story of Triffids however
