As John stumbles through the empty, quiet country, he is confronted by the challenges of survival, fear and maintaining his sanity. And as his journey continues, John is forced to confront a shocking episode from his past, and he begins to realise that he may not be alone on Earth after all... This is an absolute treat for fans of sci-fi or speculative fiction in the grand tradition of writers such as H.G. Wells. Adapted for the screen in 1985 and highly sought-after ever since, The Quiet Earth is now belatedly being viewed as a classic.
