    Make sure you have your Mask and Flame Thrower Ready!

    This book was finished in record time for me. I read it in three days, which a book of this size would be a week. I like to take my time and absorb the book, but this just grabbed and and ran away!

    The plot is very unqiue and very life like, if large man eating plants can be life like. I don't know what training Wyndham had, but he got the human condition spot on. I ws kind of surprised that the Triffids did not have such a more pronounced roll in most of the book. Only in the beginning and end of the book, but it was just enough to keep you going on.

    This book changed everything for me

    After reading this book as a teenager it changed how I viewed the entire world. It made me realize all the things I took for granted and all the things that someday I/we may have to do with out. It made me wonder just how we would evolve regardless of what caused the changes. John Wyndham was a genius! Read anything you can get your hands on by him.

    Personally, I think of this book every single time I look at my sunflowers!

    Way better than Stephen King!

    Day of the Triffids captures your imagination without all the ridiculous sex and violence so prevalent in todays literature. Appropriate for ages 10 and up.

    Fantastic!

    The only thing more amazing than this book is the fact that it was written so long ago. The author must have been able to see into our Monsanto future. Creepy! A must read for sure.
