The Children of Men

I have been interested in this book when I first saw the trailer of the movie years ago. It seemed interesting. It was the world several years from now and no one was able to have children anymore. However, a woman eventually gets pregnant. I don't know the details of the movie, but the book takes place in 2021 and the last child was born in 1995.

From the trailer it seemed that the movie would be more action packed than the book was. The book was very slow moving and I didn't really feel like it expounded much. I guess I wanted more background and details about the way society was.

This book is not appropriate for Relief Society Book Club. It almost made it, but then within the last few pages they started cussing.

Try reading Original Sin by PD James. I really liked it!
