Chocky by John Wyndham

John Wyndham
Chocky

This is such a clever author with his ability to make the most outlandish idea seem believable to the extent a tiny thought enters your head that this could possibly happen if notice wasn't taken at a certain time or certain mistakes were left uncorrected, etc.

This is such a clever author with his ability to make the most outlandish idea seem believable to the extent a tiny thought enters your head that this could possibly happen if notice wasn’t taken at a certain time or certain mistakes were left uncorrected, etc.  

This story is about aliens occupying the heads of children and communicating with them in order to assess various civilisations. 

I like the way it was written in the first person, as this makes you feel you are privy to the character’s thoughts, and also adds to the feeling of (possible!) reality.  It’s a very clever and engrossing and totally gripping book, and one that leaves a little germ of ‘what if?’ in your head after you’ve finished it.

I remember seeing this serialised on TV when a child and still distinctly remember how terrified I was, a brave choice for children’s TV.
