Comments

The author's best-known work, a catastrophe novel about Londoners stricken with blindness due to a cosmic phenomenon, and wave of large, intelligent, carnivorous plants taking over the city. An attractive copy of a science fiction highspot, making all of the important lists, and basis for several film adaptations.
