Every time I review a John Wyndham I can not resist defending him against the Cosy Catastrophe label foisted upon him by Brian Aldiss The allegation is that Wyndham tends to write books where the middle class white protagonist is not much inconvenienced by the catastrophe affecting the general populace He just holes up somewhere nice smoking his cigars until it is all over I have always felt this is unfair as his central characters get into plenty of scrapes in the books I readHaving said that the first half of The Kraken Wakes really does seem to justify this denunciation It starts off very cosy and shuffles along amiably until all hell breaks loose in the novel s second half The basic storyline is that some mysterious fireballs from outer space fall into deep oceans and soon ships start disappearing in the middle of their voyage The word alien is not used in this book but yeah bloody aliens are at it again On the whole The Kraken Wakes reminds me a little bit of Wells The War of the Worlds in that some aliens show up start decimating mankind with their weird death machines then view spoilerbugger off hide spoiler
