The Chrysalids - John Wyndham

I love, sci-fi, it is one of my favourite genres over all media, and therefore, classic sci-fi reads are high up on my “Must get to at some point in my life” list, so when I was looking for something a bit more classic to read after finishing a teen dystopia (I enjoyed it, but it didn’t add anything new to the genre), I thought this would be the perfect choice. 299 more words

Book Review: The Midwich Cuckoos- John Wyndham
