Publisher's Summary

In the sleepy English village of Midwich, a mysterious silver object appears and all 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 blonde, all are golden eyed. They grow up too fast, and their minds exhibit frightening abilities that give them control over others and brings them into conflict with the villagers just as a chilling realization dawns on the world outside.

The Midwich Cuckoos is the classic tale of aliens in our midst, exploring how we respond when confronted by those who are innately superior to us in every conceivable way.

    "Excellent"

    Great story excellent narration. One very small niggle. When the vicar is portrayed, I could not help but picture the vicar from curse of the wererabbit. A very small point and certainly did not detract from a highly enjoyable audiobook.

    "A great classic"

    Having missed this book first time round thought it was a good idea to read it the audible way. Well narrated with a story that doesn't really date.
