Amazed its not been made into a film yet.

I love this book, and its my favourite of all the John Wyndhams, but strangely is not very well known. It raises a lot of great questions about the science and beauty industry. Plus of course the key question: what would you do to stay young? I dont want to give anything away, but this is a great, thought provoking book that has aged well, and if anything seems more relevant today. Its only a short leap of the imagination, so suits those who dont like implausible books. Well worth a read even if you dont normally enjoy science fixtion at all.
