In the sleepy English village of Midwich, a mysterious silver object appears and ll the inhabitants fall unconscious. A day later the object is gone and everyone awakens unharmed - except that all the women in the village are discovered to be pregnant. The resultant children of Midwich do not belong to their parents- all are blond, all are golden-eyed. They grow up too fast and all their minds exhibit frightening abilities that give them control over others. This beings them into conflict with the villagers just as a chilling realization dawns on the world outside. . . The Midwich Cuckoos is the classic tales of aliens in our midst, exploring how we respond when confronted by those who are innately superior to us in every conceivable way. 'Exciting, unsettling and technically brilliant' - Spectator

A book composed almost entirely of dialogue; gets off to a slow start and ends far too abruptly.
