Free download The Chrysalids 100 S mutants But as David and Rosalind grow older it becomes difficult to conceal their differences from the village elders Soon they face a choice wait for eventual discovery or flee to the terrifying and mutable Badlan. It is certainly easy to classify John Wyndham s The Chrysalids as old school YA fiction from before YA fiction needed a label but it offers than your average after school special between covers in that it treats the reader as an intelligent and reasonable person and that while there is a touch of the 50s to the book it was certainly way ahead of it s timeDavid Strorm is the only living son of a patriarch of an ultra religious post apocalyptic community Faced a level of mutation in the their farming stock both plants and animals the community has twisted the christian faith into a fundamentalist view that any variation is a sin against god and must be burnt This is handled by the community and by appointed inspectors A few plants that don t uite grow to perfection and a whole crop is burnt to the ground While this may have helped a little curb the proliferation of any mutagens that may be harmful to humans it has certainly held back any natural selection processes Unfortunately the rules do not end at the farm Any human born not in god s image is not certified by the inspectors and is taken hushed up and forgotten There is also an unspoken rule that a female who produces offspring three times that do not get certified is taken away and uite possibly treated like the livestock that also do not produce It is a frightening and terror filled community one that brings back memories of Atwood s A Handmaid s Tale So everyone in this community has a stamp of approval that they fit the image of god in all their looks But what happens if there is a variation that an inspector cannot see David learns from an early age that he can communicate with a small group of others telepathically This small group of children band together in their fear and strategise to hide their differences in fear for their lives But all is changed when people notice their strange behaviour when one of their kind is hurt and they come to their rescue with no seemingly way of knowing that the person was injuredAt a guess I have probably read The Chrysalids about a dozen times Mostly in my teens as I worked my way through whatever John Wyndhams I could find in my local and school libraries after discovering The Day of the Triffids So any John Wyndham is a comfort read for me A mix of good sturdy SF with nostalgia Truthfully this book probably deserves a 4 star rating but it means a lot to me It was the Wyndham that made me that much confident as a teen who did not fit in It introduced me to religious fundamentalism And it also made it OK to be a daydreamer I think all the John Wyndhams that I read as a teen have made me a better person in the long run I certainly wouldn t be the same person had I not read and loved them

Summary The ChrysalidsThe Chrysalids

Free download The Chrysalids 100 First published in 1955 The Chrysalids is a post nuclear story of genetic mutation in a devastated world which tells of the lengths the intolerant will go to to keep themselves pureDavid Strorm's father doesn't approv. Imagine a world where a little deviation from the norm in physical appearance means burning and banishment because you are far from what God created Why there are imperfections when we know perfect exists God creates perfect humans plants and animals so no deviations have the right to live in the world They re the work of Devil A world where people have to give away their loved ones because God has not made them perfect These deviations or imperfections are known as offenses and blasphemies Plants animals fell in to first category while the humans found themselves in the latter David is born into this world with the power of telepathy No one is able to detect this and thus he managed to survive in this cruel world First he was happy that his mutation did not affect his appearance but as he grew he understood the repercussion of getting caught Then things took a turn for worse and he along with two others embarks on journey to the distant land It is easy to imagine how this apoplectic setting could have created controversies at the time of its release because after all only a decade earlier the world had suffered World War II and the horrors were still fresh But what appalled me most is that even after five decades nothing has changed and people are still trying to overpower each other still committing heinous crime against each other in the name of religion and superiority Definitely one of the better Dystopia that I have read Highly recommended
