Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Samuel West

Science Fiction • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1951

The first few seconds of THE DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS announce excellence in the form of an unusually clear recording of a marvelously cultivated voice reading a well-crafted text. The listener's engagement is immediate and effortless. The thoughtful, understated story of how the few survivors of a mysterious cataclysm cope with their changed world seems to tell itself without an intermediary performer. One might expect a work of science fiction that is more than 40 years old to seem dated; this one does not. Fine writing flawlessly projected-- this is what we hope for every time we load a new tape.
