1953: Out Of The Deeps by John Wyndham
July 17, 2008
This book was released in Europe as The Kraken Wakes. A better title would’ve been The Reader Sleeps. It’s essentially the story of sea monsters attacking the world told through a series of press conferences, newspaper articles, breakfast table conversations and…even this…terse synopsis…is making me….drowsy.
On a scale of deep-sea maladies ranging from an earache to the bends, this book is: mild swimmer’s itch.
