Book reviews, interviews, columns, and musings. September Brian Nicholson fiction Chocky by John Wyndham "Used to be that my head was haunted," goes a line from a Pixies song I first encountered out of context and have since hung onto as its own phrase, even after eventually hearing the complete song and not remembering the rest of it. Chocky written by John Wyndham is a rather short novel dealing with the drama surrounding a family’s encounter with an alien presence.

Feb 17,  · Chocky (Penguin Modern Classics) Kindle Edition by Chocky is an alien presence who chooses eleven-year-old Matthew to communicate with about the possible re-colonization of the Earth by his species. Wyndham's greatest trick is perhaps to convince his reader that they are not reading science fiction at all, but a perfectly plausible account /5(61). The Chocky-trauma seemed to be mending – though I felt less sure of that So I contented myself with a simple ‘yes’, and let Mary go on telling me in as sympathetic a way as possible how wrong I had been to perceive subtle complexities in what had, after all, turned out to be just a rather more developed, and certainly more troublesome 4/5(32).

I create fun and informative printed paper 5/5(3). Chocky explained that ‘millions’ was a gross overstatement. Conditions varied with the type of intelligent life-form, of course, but here there was a number of qualifications that had to be fulfilled. First, the subject had to have the type of mind that was susceptible to her 4/5(32).
