Day of the Triffids Part One: Darkness falls on London! The Curiously Specific Book Club

We’re back in London, discovering the places and context for John Wyndham’s legendary dystopian tale The Day of the Triffids. Our hero, Bill Masen, has woken up in a London hospital to a world in which everything has changed – almost everyone has become blind overnight, and the plants which Bill helped to breed, the triffids, have begun to prey on the newly vulnerable humans. But where is the hospital Bill wakes up in? And where does he end up taking shelter in central London? And why do pubs play such an important role?
