Ooh I love John Wyndham's books! The Chrysalids is my favourite (love the idea of telepathy etc) but like them all. Can't do 6pm though - is there a podcast?

I read that, long ago. Saw the film, too.

It's Consider Her Ways that's really got the feminist interest. You can read it on the computer:

If I'm remembering it right, there's a fairly admirable marriage between the narrator and his wife in The Kraken Wakes, too.

The Chrysalids is my favourite too - I love a bit of post-apocalyptic stuff, especially when people make up myths about what the apocalypse was
