    " I find with older books people often think, well, this has been done or this isn't very sophisticated, yet this was very ultra-modern, even scandalous and cool in its time and still holds up. The movie versions were cheesy granted. There are lots of interesting themes and somehow you feel for the 'children' as well as the humans. Wyndham always delivers a good sci-fi/horror mix. "

    " A little slow though I think this was caused by my own perceptions of what the story would be. I haven't seen the film but like when I read Breakfast at Tiffiny's, I had the visual anchor so wasn't prepared for the style in which this book was written. Creepy stuff though and I love that it was the anti War of the Worlds. Also one of my favourite things in John Wyndham books is when a character so clearly speaks for the author, it's always the character I agree with the most and I take great pleasure in imagining the satisfaction Mr Wyndham must have felt getting all this stuff of his chest.
