      PDF The Possessors PDF Ê ï mdeparenpar.co possessors mobile, The Possessors MOBIAnother interesting and well written book from this author He's well worth reading if you like apocalyptic novels and early science fiction I suppose some people would find his interactions between men and women very old fashioned almost unreadable but I uite like them for that very reason it's amusing to see how times have changed In Christopher's books the men sit together in huddles discussing problems whilst keeping anything unpleasant from the little ladies who are relegated to getting some food prepared or looking after the children But they are delicate and are always wearing rather flimsy clothing so can't really do much of any use In this novel a group of holidaying English people are trapped in a ski lodge in the Alps by an avalanche The shift of snow uncovers something evil that came to Earth many millions of years before but waited patiently until it could possess a new species I love books with a tiny cast of characters

      PDF The Possessors PDF Ê ï mdeparenpar.co possessors mobile, The Possessors MOBIComing with a rave recommendation from big time SF fan Kingsley Amis on the cover this 1965 novel by John “Death of Grass” Christopher Sam Youd is a uietly compelling take on the “alien bodysnatchers” template proof that you don’t necessarily need Big Ideas to make a SF story work just good old fashioned storytelling talent Beginning with an italicised prologue from the perspective of a doomed alien race wherein we learn that these spectral beings who reuire living flesh and blood hosts to supp

    6. Graham Graham says:

      PDF The Possessors PDF Ê ï mdeparenpar.co possessors mobile, The Possessors MOBIJohn Christopher the author responsible for the exemplary apocalypse novel THE DEATH OF GRASS here tries his hand at a briefer and straightforward sci fi thriller clearly indebted to INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS That's a plus for me because I find the whole sub genre to be thoroughly unnerving best brought to life in the 1978 film version of the Jack Finney which just so happens to be my favourite movie of all timeThis tale's set in the Swiss Alps where a dozen or so Brits are practising their skiing Unfortunately for them an alien lifeform dormant in the snow is thawed and latches on to one of their number familiar shenanigans ensue It does feel like there's a lot of padding here in the form of endless characterisation with the leads discussing their woes and spending a lot of time boozing but I didn't have much of a problem with this material as it's still readable The sci fi aspects are kept minimal which is right

      PDF The Possessors PDF Ê ï mdeparenpar.co possessors mobile, The Possessors MOBIBy far the best of the three Christopher books I've read recently Whilst this continues to suffer the almost Victorian attitudes toward the female characters the plot is perfectly paced The gradual abduction of members of the holidaying party is well handled and even until the end I could not decide who was going to survive or if anyone was going to survive

      PDF The Possessors PDF Ê ï mdeparenpar.co possessors mobile, The Possessors MOBIIn the 1950s and 1960s John Christopher was in the vanguard of British SF writers specializing in realistic post apocalyptic thrillers contributing such classics as “The Death Of Grass” and “The World in Winter” “The Possessors” is something of a departure for Christopher although technically SF the book uses some classic horror tropes as a group of people snowed in at a ski lodge must confront an unseen enemy There is nothing particularly new here but the book does benefit from subtle characterization sure plotting and some well constructed unexpected shocks422 Home and under the weather during the Easter Break I took this down to check something about another Sam Youd AKA John Christopher book listed at the back flipped through it an
