Although dated in some respects, this is a book which will haunt you for the rest of your life. it covers so many aspects and makes you re think things. Although a defining disaster Novel this book is still relavant 52 years later (It was published in 1952)
I will not go into the plot of the book which has been aptly described by other reviewers here but will say that it is a Novel that everyone should read at least once in their life. If you are a Sci Fi buff you will love it. If you love the beauty of the English Language you will adore it also. In short, something for everyone!. Enjoy"!!
The remainder of the story follows the last surviving humans; they must cooperate to escape and start a life safe from the now dominant creatures on Earth.
Overall, a thought-provoking ending to an exciting and original (at the time) book. Highly recommended.
Everything else was okay with this product.

Well written and a story that will keep you in suspense. Recommended.
This interesting book by English science-fiction author John Wyndham (1903-69) is a true classic of the genre. I enjoyed the monstrous triffids, which were well designed, and I enjoyed the way the story moved from horror to the social commentary of characters deciding how to live in such a new and different world, and back again – which gave the book a philosophical feel, while at the same time staying quite entertaining from beginning to end.
This is a very interesting and entertaining book, one that I am very glad I read. If you want to read a great work of science-fiction, then I highly recommend that you get this great book!
