A great story

I liked the writing style - direct, factual, correct. It lends an air of authority to a novel about a serious event in an English village. This is a great story, a wonderful premise as with much of his work. You can feel yourself drifting into some spooky sixties tv serialisation, wondering all the time where it is all going to lead.

I had not read any Wyndham for many years. I'm glad I went back for more. A master of science fiction not complicated by the box ticking correctness that affects so much art these days. This is a slice of old England, under threat from invasion and approached with typical British properness. Bravo!
