John Wyndham, eccezionale narratore di fantascienza, mancava da qualche tempo nella nostra collana, ma chi ha letto le sue precedenti opere: Le Onde del Sahara, Avventura su Marte, L'Orrenda Invasione, il Risveglio dell'Abisso, non può averlo dimenticato, e si tufferà con rinnovato piacere nelle pagine de I Trasfigurati. Gli altri, ne apprezzeranno lo stile scarno e immediato, il vigore delle immagini, la poesia delle vicende da lui raccontate, e si appassioneranno a questa sua nuova opera, lasciandosi trasportare in un mondo di logica favola dove il fantastico e l'umano sono tanto abilmente fusi, che alla fine del libro l'unica realtà possibile sembra quella raccontata da Wyndham, e pare di trovarsi per errore in un mondo che non è, del tutto, quello descritto dall'autore. "E Dio creò l'uomo a Sua immagine e somiglianza". Dalla presuntuosa interpretazione di questa frase biblica nasce il dramma di Sophie, la tragedia di Anne e Katherine, la storia di David e Rosalind e Petra, la speranza per Michael e Deborah. Dalla penna di Wyndham, che qui dimostra ancora una volta di aver raggiunto vera maturità di scrittore, sgorga spontanea e viva la condanna per una umanità orgogliosa e pazza, la pietà per i miseri, l'amara consapevolezza per la sorte degli umani.

Science fiction for me is always a fairly hit or miss affair. I have tried H G Wells and not really been that impressed, so when I saw this book I thought I would give it a try but the expectations were fairly low. I couldn't have been more wrong.

The Chrysalids is set in the future following what can only be assumed as some sort of nuclear holocaust. Society has reverted back to one controlled by religion when both the Bible and a newly mantra dictates the lives of everyday people. Although life has managed to survive the radiation, it is not without difficulties and people are now living in an almost middle ages existence with minimal technological advances. The biggest issue faced in the effect of the radiation, which continually creates 'mutants' whereby plants and animals deviate from the norm, this can be from something as simple as an extra toe to gargantuan abnormalities. Anything found to differ is shunned by society and either destroyed or exiled. A group of children soon learn that being different is life threatening and must hide their 'abnormality' - a telepathic ability to communicate with each other over distances. How long can this secret be kept, and what are the consequences of its exposure.

I loved this book, and it really was so much more than your run of the mill scifi, the plot was realistic and the prose so well written you can see why this is earning the status classic. Real life issues are not glossed over and the story is as much a study of religion and eugenics as it is of a futuristic planet. It seems as fresh today as any other book released despite being written in 1955. ( )

So many modern themes, if you really consider the impact of genetic testing and consequences of that. ( )
  Vividrogers | Dec 20, 2020 |
A group of telepathic children grow up in a post apocalyptic society where genetic purity and the eradication of mutants are primary values.

Well paced picture of David becoming more aware of the nature of his society and the danger he is in as he grows up. ( )

An interesting novel because it envisions a post-apocalyptic world--presumably the apocalypse was a nuclear war, there were many such books written in the mid to late 1950s that is both devastated and also healing. The story follows a group of youngsters through early adulthood; outwardly, they are "standard" humans but they are all linked by telepathy, which is discovered eventually, leading to conflict. Wyndham offers hope, but the bearer of that hope is also a fatalist who believes that all things, good as well as bad, pass in time. ( )

Wyndham lumbers his characters with some verbose, pompous speeches about human nature, but his points are still interesting and as relevant today as when he wrote the book in 1955. It's also a ripping adventure.

When I was quite small I would sometimes dream of a city -- which was strange because it began before I even knew what a city was.

There was the power of gods in the hands of children, we know: but were they MAD children, all of them quite mad?
The essential quality of life is living; the essential quality of living is change; change is evolution: and we are part of it.
No one would dream of mentioning [childbirth] openly until the inspector should have called to issue his certificate that it was a human baby in the true image. Should it unhappily turn out to violate the image and thus be ineligible for a certificate, everyone would continue to be unaware of it, and the whole regrettable incident would be deemed not to have occurred.
