Woodsmith & 'The Triffids'

Benefitz Betty's picture

"When a day that you happen to know is a Wednesday starts off sounding like a Sunday, there is something seriously wrong somewhere."  Wyndham P1, 1951

"The Day of the Triffids is a post-apocalyptic genre piece pure and simple. Written in 1951 by British author John Wyndham the book tells the story of Bill Masen who, after waking up blindfolded in hospital and discovering everyone in the hospital has been blinded after viewing a spectacular meteor shower the night before, stumbles out of his room and into London."
