Synopsis

2021 MARKS THE 70th ANNIVERSARY OF THE DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS, THE MOST FAMOUS CATASTROPHE NOVEL OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY

'When a day that you happen to know is Wednesday starts off by sounding like Sunday, there is something seriously wrong somewhere.'

When a freak cosmic event renders most of the Earth's population blind, Bill Masen - one of the lucky few to keep his sight - finds himself trapped in a London jammed with sightless mobs who prey on those who can still see. But another menace stalks blind and sighted alike. With nobody to stop them the Triffids - walking carnivorous plants with lethal stingers - rise up as humanity stumbles and falls . . .

With its startling imagery of desolate streets and lurching, The Day of the Triffid's lethal plant life retains its power to haunt today.

'One of those books that haunts you for the rest of your life' Sunday Times

'Has captivated readers for over half a century' Guardian
