Beyond James' trademark, impeccable observations and her novel's studied tone, The Children of Men is, at it's heart, a post-apocalyptic novel. Since 1995, no one has given birth to a child, worldwide. Science is at a loss for an explanation. Historian Theodore Faron witnesses the quickening decay of institutions and rejects his previous life for a new role as a revolutionary. At the same time, he struggles to deal with tragedy in his past. Inner and outer conflicts mesh wonderfully in James' most talented hands. Adapted into a brilliant 2006 film.
