Matthew is a normal 11-year-old boy living with his parents and little sister in Surrey. He's too old and sensible to have an imaginary friend really. Yet when Matthew's parents keep finding him talking and arguing with a strange presence whom Matthew calls Chocky, that's what they believe it must be at first. But Chocky is oddly sinister, and keeps asking Matthew all sorts of complicated questions about the world and making him behave in unusual and erratic ways. Then Matthew suddenly does something heroic, well beyond his capabilities; the media become interested and the interest in Matthew widens. His parents refer him to a psychologist. Who is Chocky? And what could he or she want with their son?

    " Cute stuff - well thought out as usual "

    " a short, smart science-fiction novel, that still works after 45 years "

    " The premise of Chocky sounded rather curious, and i really enjoyed it. Seeing Matthew's relationship with Chocky from a third person's point of view was as frustrating as it was interesting. Not having insight into how the two really communicated, and Matthew being unable to articulate everything satisfactorily was useful in keeping threat of Chocky unknown: Whether it was real or imaginary, whether they were friend or foe. But ultimately it also left me so many unanswered questions, so many unfulfilled emotions. I wanted to know more. "

    " I always enjoy a John Wyndham. This is one I haven't re-read much so it was pretty fresh in the mind (whereas Day of the Triffids and Chrysalids are multiple re-reads). Very well-put-together and well-written; would recommend. Not entirely 100% sure about the portrayal of the mother, mind; not entirely right-on I feel. "

    " -This is a story of a boy, Matthew, who is visited by a being named Chocky. This being teachers Matthew about physics and science. As he learns, he runs into problems with the people in his life. This was an amazing audiobook. It was performed by BBC, and was like watching a movie in my head. "

    " My favourite John Wyndham novel. Very thought provoking and could not put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kenneth Shaw | 12/16/2013

    " This is a sweet book and mature take on alien contact. Steven Spielberg has held an option on this for a long time and I hope he gets it made if only to bring John Wyndham to new readers. "

    " great wee book. it's a short read but a compelling one "

    " A very unusual book and very interesting to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally | 6/9/2013

    " I'm a huge John Wyndham fan and this is another excellent reason to love his work. I adore his eerie, earthbound sci-fi. 'Chocky' is short but rich. I couldn't put it down and was never sure where it was going. A must for Wyndham fans and sci-fi fans alike. "

    " it was ok.....very well written "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian Robbins | 4/15/2013

    " Wyndham writes good, straight-forward stories well. Characters, plot & action are never complicated, but he creates a satisfying piece. I enjoyed a good relax with this one. "

    " It is official... I love John Wyndham! "

    " John Wyndham's 1968 novel is a classic of the genre. My dialogue with my alien friend continues to this day. Just don't tell the authorities... "
