    Book Ì The Kraken Wakes Ê Mass Market Paperback ´ John wyndham The Kraken WakesI will probably always nod to Wyndham's Day of the Triffids as a crowning piece of SF but The Kraken Wakes takes on a very similar tone albeit very different problemsThe two both have a heavy focus on science and rationality in the face of unfathomable problems Triffids had mass blindness turning most of humanity into meat for ambulatory plants while Kraken shows us just how lame we are against deep ocean dwelling aliens despite nukes especially when the icebergs melt I especially loved the full logical exploration of options possibilities and solutions but humanity

    Book Ì The Kraken Wakes Ê Mass Market Paperback ´ John wyndham The Kraken WakesEvery time I review a John Wyndham I can not resist defending him against the “Cosy Catastrophe” label foisted upon him by Brian Aldiss The allegation is that Wyndham tends to write books where the middle class white protagonist is not much inconvenienced by the catastrophe affecting the general populace He just holes up somewhere nice smoking his cigars until it is all over I have always felt this is unfair as his central characters get into plenty of scrapes in the books I readHaving said that the first half of The Kraken Wakes really does seem to justify this denunciation It starts off very cosy and shuffles along amiably

    Book Ì The Kraken Wakes Ê Mass Market Paperback ´ John wyndham The Kraken WakesThere's a law of nature still waiting to be discovered which states that the probability of a tune or a bit of bad poetry getting stuck in your head is in inverse proportion to the uality of the piece in uestion I read this book almost 40 years ago and every now and then the following piece of doggerel resurfaces and annoys my conscious mind Oh I'm burning my brains in the back roomAlmost setting my cortex alightTo find a new thing to go crack boomAnd blow up a xenobathite Isn't it just horrible? You'd hope that the person who made it up would be grabbed by a slimy marine monster's tentacles dragged screaming to the water and slowly drowned But who says there's no justice? That's exactly what happens

  • Jonathan Terrington

    Book Ì The Kraken Wakes Ê Mass Market Paperback ´ John wyndham The Kraken Wakes The Kraken Wakes is probably the most different of John Wyndham's still read novels Which perhaps helped me to recognise what makes him stand out in the field of sci fi He's a brilliant combiner of elements of both horror and sci fi to create a chillingly realistic novels with intelligent thoughts and ideas behind them While he may take inspiration from Verne and Wells he refers to them within his actual novels in clever metalinguistic intertextual devices he writes works which are original in their entirety and fascinating That said The Kraken Wakes is probably not the best place to begin reading any of Wyndham's novels I'd start with The Chrysalids The Midwich Cuckoos or The Day of the TriffidsPerhaps the most surprisin

    Book Ì The Kraken Wakes Ê Mass Market Paperback ´ John wyndham The Kraken WakesOnce again a lesson in down beat sci fi writing Something lands on Earth from space crashing into the depths of the oceans and 'doing something we can't see' but can only imagineWe drop nukes on them and they come up to take us bit by bit The sea levels riseand we're probably doomedSound familiar? WAR OF THE WORLDS meets AN INCONVENIENT TRUTHand its 50 years oldCorking and grown up My favourite Wyndham novel but only by a tickle over DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS

    Book Ì The Kraken Wakes Ê Mass Market Paperback ´ John wyndham The Kraken WakesIt was Brian Aldiss that accused John Wyndham of writing cosy catastrophes but there is nothing cosy about the catastrophe depicted hereSome form of alien beings arrive from space and settle in our deepest oceans and even though they cannot exist in the low pressure environment of the surface and we can't exist in their high pressure environment at the bottom of the oceans it soon becomes clear that the two cannot cohabit the earth

    Book Ì The Kraken Wakes Ê Mass Market Paperback ´ John wyndham The Kraken WakesAnother John Wyndham invasion story28 February 2013 Have you ever read a couple of books by an author that are simply so brilliant that whenever you see a book written by that author you grab it expecting that it will be brilliant as well and then when you read it it just gets nowhere near your expectations? That happened to me with this book It is not that it is a bad book by no means but after reading Day of the Triffids and The Chrysalids I had such a high expectation with John Wyndham'
