Insidious alien invasion of a small English village,
This review is from: The Midwich Cuckoos (Mass Market Paperback)
A very well-written piece of sci-fi. John Wyndham has achieved a beautifully realised feeling of tension and an ominous foreboding as the book progresses, particularly after the mention of the fate of the Children of Gizhinsk towards the end. What I particularly find remarkable about this novel is that Wyndham has the ability to make the reader totally aware of the confused and mixed emotions of Midwich's inhabitants after the "birth" of the Children and I find the book all the more better for it.
A classic piece of sci-fi that deserves a place in the bookshelf of any sci-fi fan.
