Cuckoos lay eggs in other bird's nests. The clutch that was fathered on the quiet little village of Midwich, one night in September, proved to possess a monstrous will of its own. It promised to make the human race look as dated as the dinosaur.

This is a different edition to the picture shown above. It's an old Penguin (1967), but in excellent condition.

This was superb. I loved Day of the Triffids and this was even better. It's a short book at just over 200 pages but there's a lot of story packed in there. I was gripped right to the end.

Read it and you'll soon see why it deserves its place on the 1001 list.

As this is on the 1001-library's wish list I'm going to donate it.

Received today. Thank you so much for sending this to me. It is next up on my TBR (as soon as I'm done reading my current book). When I'm finished I will make available to the 1001-library again. 


Journal Entry 6 by Heaven150 at Edmonton, Alberta Canada on Thursday, June 10, 2010

8 out of 10

Fabulous little story. Short book (just over 200 pages), but very well written. Moves along at a very nice place, sucks you in and keeps you there. Found parts of it chilling. I think the most chilling thing is that it seems believable. I could actually imagine a small town "infested" with children with the ability to control others. Highly recommended.

Is now available again through the 1001-library.

Received today, along with some great stamps for my mom's collection. Thank you!

Part of flewry's 1001-library VBB (round 2).

I love how the oddities of the site have put this book under "nonfiction"...

This book has been weeded from the 1001-library due to lack of circulation: first I need to FIND it, but once I do it will probably hit the road. This is not a reflection on the book, but on my urgent need to downsize and my lack of unlimited space. :(
