Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Bill Masen works with triffids—animalistic plants with poisonous venom, wicked stingers, and the ability to move around on three "legs." Hospitalized when he succumbs to triffid venom in a lab accident, Masen misses seeing a world-changing night—a quirk of fate may just save his life. Strongly influenced by H.G. Wells' The War of the Worlds, Wyndham's post-apocalyptic novel displays some similarities to Wells' seminal sci-fi work. Yet, it remains an enduring classic in its own right, bursting with imagination and startling inventiveness. Read by Alex Jennings—a renowned British stage, television, and radio actor.
