Description
Information
In peaceful, placid Midwich, the entire child-bearing female population becomes pregnant overnight. Born with strong survival instincts and a monstrous will, the Children subdue the villagers into an uneasy alliance. When a violent incident occurs, the social and moral fabric of the village disintegrates and a battle for survival begins which threatens the very existence of mankind. An immediate hit, The Midwich Cuckoos was later filmed as Village of the Damned. Wyndham's other best-selling novels include The Day of the Triffids and The Chrysalids, and have established him as one of the most widely read science fiction writers of the English-speaking world.
'Exciting, unsettling and technically brilliant.'
