4.0 out of 5 stars What happened when the Tripods came?, 26 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: When the Tripods Came (Mass Market Paperback)
I remember years ago watching the tv series of the Tripods on tv and being totally engrossed - I was horrified when it seemed to disappear off the screen without a resolution to the story. Years later, I now know that the series was discontinued - why, I'll never understand - it was fantastic viewing and a great story.

It's been great to be able to get hold of the original books that inspired that tv series, and I'm starting with the prequel When The Tripods Came. This story is written from the perspective of Laurie, a teenager in the late twentieth century, who, with his friend Andy, are among the first to see the first Tripod which arrives in England. Simultaneous events occur around the world, and then the Tripods seem to be destroyed - but have they found what they were looking for? And could they come back? (Well, we know they do! But that doesn't detract from the fun of reading about it.)

This is pitched at a level of reading of younger readers, but for those who have fond memories of the Tripods and want to revisit their story, this is still a great fun read. Looking forward to getting on to the trilogy now.
