This review is from: The Children of Men (Paperback)
A nightmarish vision of a world in which man have become infertile, and the last child born 25 years ago, this is in some ways far away from James' crime fiction. The religious undertones well known from her crime, is here, though.
James shows us a world without hope, without motivation and compassion, with state-sanctioned (not to say demanded) eutanasia and with mindless violence. She also describes some of the practical problems of such a world.
Not mind-boggling, but a low-key sci-fi that should be of interest to readers of Orwell, Huxley, Burgess and others.
