KIRKUS REVIEW

Report repeated from page 666 of the November 1st bulletin, as follows: ""*After reading this little horror you will toss your innocent geranium out the window. The triffids are gigantic plants, mysteriously arrived on earth, which take up their roots and walk, searching for men to kill. A terrible celestial incident, which permanently blinds the majority of people on earth, helps the belligerent blossoms in their work. William Mason, escaping blindness, teams up with a beautiful (sighted) girl and after mishaps and separations in a decaying and depopulated world starts a colony with other pioneers as the triffids an wistfully against the fences. Fast, readable and triffid-ly chilling.
