The Children of Men

The Children of Men
by P. D. James.

Amazing book, in the tradition of Orwell's 1984 and Waugh's When the Kissing had to Stop.

See the movie before reading the book! The movie is more vivid and fast-paced than the book. The book is very thoughtful and helps you mull over and argue with some of the ways it was interpreted in the film.

They both show ways that society falls apart. They explore what happens to society when it has no future.

Interesting to compare some aspects of the book and the movie:
