The Children Of Men

Surprise Today - We have a guest reviewer - my husband, Joe, read this one and I asked him to give a review. So here it is: The Children of Men by P.D. James.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book. The story was set about twenty or so years in the future and focused on a major dilemma for the human race. For some
unknown reason the entire human race became infertile and no one on earth was capable of producing children. The author effectively communicates the
distress that would be caused if one knew their species was about to become extinct. The author spends a considerable amount of time discussing the diminishing influence of Christianity and seems to attribute the infertility
problem with the lack of a moral center. I enjoyed the story and would
love to see a sequel written.
