The Chrysalids by John Wyndham: review

I love John Wyndham - I always have done. He was a great favourite at my prep school, where I read Chocky, The Midwich Cuckoos and The Chrysalids with a sort of strange pang: one wanted these bizarre things to happen, even though they were frightening. They are very powerful commentaries, as well as being thrillers – although of course I didn't notice that at the time. Anyway, here's a link to my review of The Chrysalids in today's Observer.
