This review is from: The Day of the Triffids (Paperback)
ONly just remembered the series, but decided to pick up the book not long after War of The Worlds - which it alwasy gets compared to. I found them different - Triffids seemed more about the collapse of society, and the problems thrown up by the Triffids rather than thier actual 'taking over' of the plants. Wyndham's skill ies in just having The Triffids skulking in the periphery, always there, adding to the woes of the poor, in-fighting human survivors.
A great book; a classic example of reserved but chilling british sci-fi.
