I haven't read that one. But don't judge an author by one single book, you should look at his overall works.

Maybe he was sick while writing it :wink:

When I was younger, I was an avid reader of John Wyndham (Day of the Triffids et al). At that time, he was definitely my favorite - I made a point of searching for his books, even trying different book stores and libraries when my local ones didn't have them. Sadly, I ran out of Wyndham books to read, so I haven't read anything by him recently. I should probably dig them out again though, because they were really good reads.

Not sure who my current favorite would be... I tend to read quite a variety, so not much really sticks out at any one time. I'll have to think about it.
