9781906147754: The Kraken Wakes

Wyndham's stunning tale of an alien emergence from the depths of the ocean

 From the author of Day of the Triffids comes another terrifying masterpiece of extraterrestrial invasion and humanity's efforts to blight it. Following a journalist couple from the beginning of the invasion, where meteors fall from the sky, to the conflict between both creatures and the different countries of the human world, the sociological issues raised are scarily relevant in today's world. This audio version brings a new level to the drama and horror of one of Wyndham's most accomplished novels. Unabridged.

About the Author:

John Wyndham (1903–1969) was an acclaimed sci-fi author whose works were often set in a post-apocalyptic 1950s England. His novels include The Chrysalids and The Day of the Triffids.

From AudioFile:

One hesitates to blame global warming on aliens, but maybe John Wyndham is onto something in his 1953 science-fiction classic, which features a world environmental disaster. Eerie fireballs drop from the sky, creating impenetrable fogs, melting ice caps, and seemingly intelligent ship-eating creatures who emerge from the ocean depths (the Kraken). Playing journalists Mike and Phyllis Watson, Jonathan Cake and Saira Todd have a wonderful time narrating this tale of British pluck and ingenuity. From the sounds of first contact with the mysterious aliens to the wails of lost souls drowning in the rising tides, the nonstop action is deftly enhanced with music and sound effects. The result is a robust cautionary adventure reminiscent in style, pace, and theme to Wyndham's best-known work, THE DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS.
