This essay will discuss the novel The Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham and an opinion on the novel The novel begins as Bill wakes up Bill knows something isnt right Things are too quiet The hectic bustling commuter noises of a normal Wednesday morning arent working their way through his window The nurses who attend to recently operated upon eyes have yet to show signs of themselves In a panic by his blindness Bill decides to tear the bandages from his eyes so that he can finally see what has happened It is not a good sight He soon discovers that the entire population of the hospital of London and most likely the entire world has gone blind On the previous night the Earth passed through the tail of a comet It was to cause such a green light that almost everyone went out to watch unfortunately it was the last thing they would ever see This blindness almost causes society to crumble Among the few remaining individuals that could see Bill finds himself between groups who want to use the sighted in order work for and feed the blind and those who want to leave London and rebuild society with the little resources they still have Surrounded all this chaos and death Bill soon realizes that theres another threat facing people which are the triffids A species of plants the carrion triffids soon begin to take advantage of humanitys misfortune and Bill begins to worry that the more fit triffids might soon be the ones to inherit the Earth Its tough trying to get someone to read The Day of the Triffids You start telling them about it and at first theyre interested by the opening theyll get into the idea of the world going blind and then you bring in the giant man eating plants and youve lost them Its even worse if they remember the cheesy movie based on
