Bill Masen works with triffids—animalistic plants with poisonous venom, wicked stingers, and the ability to move around on three "legs." Hospitalized when he succumbs to triffid venom in a lab accident, Masen misses seeing a world-changing night—a quirk of fate may just save his life. Strongly influenced by H.G. Wells' The War of the Worlds, Wyndham's post-apocalyptic novel displays some similarities to Wells' seminal sci-fi work. Yet, it remains an enduring classic in its own right, bursting with imagination and startling inventiveness. Read by Alex Jennings—a renowned British stage, television, and radio actor.

THE DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS
A truly scary classic of a world at war with incomprehensible forces. A must read book and, a must see movie.
--Fred Dodnick, Vice President, Director of Trade ProductionFrom the Inside Flap:
The night the sky broke out in mysterious green flashes, all but a few people on Earth were blinded. The world went mad. Ordinary folk became animals, turning on one another in terror and desperation. Bill Masen was one of a handful who struggled to preserve a shred of civilization amidst the chaos. But chaos soon became the least of mankind's problems. Walking plants were appearing -- plants that fed on the bodies of their human prey. The triffids had arrived, and it was up to Bill Masen to stop them!
