In the English village of Midwich, a silver object appears and all the inhabitants fall ... more
unconscious. A day later the object is gone and everyone awakens unharmed - except that all the women in the village are pregnant. This book offers a tale of aliens, exploring how we respond when confronted by those who are innately superior to us in every way.
Driving back from a weekend in London, Richard and Janet are surprised to find the village ... more
of Midwich sealed off. There are no birds singing, the air seems thick and there is a strange sort of music. It soon becomes clear that there is an invisible wall around the village, and everyone within the perimeter is unconscious.
