Nat is the one individual who assesses the crisis with realism.The failure of human beings to face reality is the overarching theme of one tale after another.

Nothing like the movie and really terrifying: a great piece of writing. One gets the feeling that the movie was toned down from the book, as it could have created a Cold War like panic as a worst case scenario! The other stories in this book are rather less engrossing, but on the whole it was an entertaining read.My wife rates Du Maurie

Du Maurier's tale is very different from Hitchcock's movie but still retains the terror and suspense that delivers shock, after shock. It is focussed on one man and his attempts to keep his family safe when the birds strike, again and again. There is no one to help them and the way the
