Overview on the entire book

The first thing a have to say about this book is that I really like it. Even more then I liked the triffids and I’m looking forward to read more books from this marvellous writer. I hope that this book will someday be brought out on video.

The most important subject in this book is about the shortcomings of ourselves and our society. In this book it says that the “old people” (which are us) have come the an end by a nuclear war.

The difference between one an the other is also very important in this book. Specifically, there is a “norm”. If you do not resemble it, you are a blasphemie. You will be abandoned or even killed.

Someone sees that they all ride towards the bush where Petra is, and start to ask questions. After that two of them get arrested and under torture one of the two discovers David, Rosalind and Petra. Then the chase begins to arrest them all so they can’t take Waknuk. It is also then that Petra for the first time contacts the New Sealand women. It is a race...
