John Wyndham

I am a big fan of Johns since reading triffids in high school. This is a short book at 153 pages. Its seems like a short story was good enough to expand. I suppose that is how most SciFi books work. It has a great central concept and then explores that, well paced and a nice arc. This is from the perspective of the Dad and has some good insights into the boy. The Mum is a bit 2 dimensions and patronised, making the Dad a bit unrelatable, that might be because of the age of the book. Loved the SciFi concepts and an easy read.
