Summary
The Day of the Triffids is perhaps the most famous catastrophe novel of the twentieth century, and its startling imagery of desolate streets and lurching, lethal plant life retains its power to haunt today. Divided by blindness and societal breakdown, humanity is at the mercy of the carnivorous Triffids. This full-cast drama is based on the classic post-war "science fantasy" novel which made John Wyndham famous and whose appeal endures to this day
