So I’ve finished the Chrysalids and Day of the Triffids. Although I remember reading the Chrysalids and loving it, I think there must have been a lot that I didn’t pick up on at the time – perhaps I was too young. I won’t go into detail because it is such a good book – if you like that sort of thing, you should definitely read it.
The Day of the Triffids was good but perhaps a bit more patchy than the Chrysalids. The beginning was fantastic but I found the ending far less interesting.
