Triffid Love

Ok. I'm really tired, and have had a busy two weeks, and I'm struggling just to finish work and living things, so blog posting will be short. More to come, because I'm super excited about what my Dad is doing right now. But as a short in-betweener, I'll say that I just finished John Wyndham's The Day of the Triffids. In addition to all the brilliant Soviet-hating, oil-crisis-fearing, civilisation-is-bringing-horrible-things-upon-itself (including satellite warfare and biological terrorism), look-we-can-rebuild-humanity-but-even-better stuff going on, it's just an entertaining science fiction read. The type you know makes a great cheesy 60s/70s sci-fi film (and it did...). AND it had a great book cover.
