A generation after the triffid invasion depicted in John Wyndham's THE DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS, a cloud blocking the sun plunges the Earth into darkness. David Masen, son of the triffid expert who helped establish a colony of survivors on the Isle of Wight, crash-lands while on an investigative flight. He soon learns of new threats from both the fast-evolving triffids and the warlike city of New York. Reading this first-person account, Stephen Pacey gives Masen a gentleman's grace, maintaining a sense of fun as the hero delves into questions of morality, scientific mystery, and father-son relationships. He also makes the old-fashioned language of the novel seem natural. J.A.S. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 02/ JAN 03]
