The Day of the Triffids

My Rating: 5/5
This book is scary enough to make me weary and fear before stepping out of my house next time. Perhaps I am going to imagine interceptions with imaginary Triffids each time I do .. which I am sure would be highly inconvenient and not just for me. I cannot think of a higher compliment to pay to this classic science fiction novel .. it has created some very memorable carnivorous "plants" Triffids which debilitate their prey(humans) by injecting poison and then feeding on their flesh. They are smart plants .. which evolve with experience and can grow in any soil, climate .. Imagine the likelihood of escaping such agents of murder - more potent than any biological weapon or virus - should they ever be released into our sphere.
A supernatural event turns most of the humans blind .. the few survivors not only have the onus to take care of these blind but also should navigate a world that is festering with "strange" plants named Triffids which are murderous and have all the time to wait for their prey .. for a few years people group in settlements and manage a life of hard work and fighting off the triffids .. but towards the end the path forward for humanity is forked into two ways .. which one is more likely to thrive and give raise to a new generation and better results?
Loved this book!!
Written in the 1950's parts of this book were a bit dated, but I am glad I finally got around to reading it.
Los trífidos son plantas grotescas y peligrosas, cultivadas originalmente por su valioso aceite. Mientras lo permiten las condiciones del mundo esas plantas son económicamente útiles. Pero un desastre universal y repentino destruye esas condiciones y los trífidos se transforman en una terrible y activa amenaza para el hombre.
Classic sci-fi tale of monster plants.

When a freak cosmic event renders most of the Earth's population blind, Bill Masen is one of the lucky few to retain his sight. The London he walks is crammed with groups of men and women needing help, some ready to prey on those who can still see. But another menace stalks blind and sighted alike. With nobody to stop their spread the Triffids, mobile plants with lethal stingers and carnivorous appetites, seem set to take control. 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.
