John Wyndham's classic tale of monsters from the deep, alien invasion, and ecological disaster comes alive in this full-cast BBC radio dramatisation.

At first, the fireballs seemed to be nothing more than a dazzling display of lights in the sky, plunging into the deepest oceans and disappearing without trace. But when ships started sinking inexplicably and the sea-lanes became impassable, it seemed that the world was facing a threat of unprecedented proportions. Download and start listening now!

    " Brilliant book, certainly one of his best (of which there are numerous). "

    " It was interesting as a 50's sci Fi genere pick... however it was rather melodramatic and predictable. It would have made a fun cheesy movie flick, but I probably wouldn't have finished it if I hadn't been out of fresh books on hand. meh. "

    " I love John Wyndham. "The Kraken Wakes", is in my opinion, his finest work... "

    " Sao glad I saw this title on a must read list. I truly wish this had been a required reading back in high school. It has a slightly weak ending. But it is understandable. I really enjoyed the portrayal of the two main characters "

    " Vegetables gone motile and murderous in probably the first man-made ecological disaster novel. Reads well, like a contemporary novel without the stick-up-your-ass Briticisms, as good as The Chrysalids. Suitable for teens. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 4/15/2010

    " Classic sci fi, quite a gloomy view of the end of civilization, due to invasion. Not as powerful as War of the Worlds, or as enduring, but still a good book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 4/13/2010

    " "Find a nice, self sufficient hilltop, and fortify it". Advice to live a life by from my all time favourite piece of speculative fiction. I re-read every few years and it seems to grow more prescient each time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greg | 1/16/2010

    " I love this book. Which is a little suprising considering there's really only one scene that blows me over. This rest of the book is like a tsunami of exposition. "
