Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Yes, I read it after my friends told me about seeing the movie. Though I was but a young teenager, I thought it was a good story. Don't remember how well written it was, as it's been about 45 years since I read it.
Wyndham wasn't a bad writer, although some of his later books (The Midwich Cuckoos, the Chrysalids) were better. I think the book was definitely better than the movie. The characters were far more developed and ambivalent.
And of course, The Midwich Cuckoos became The Village of the Damned.
