Book Review: The Children of Men by P.D. James

The Children of Men
Children of Men* by P.D. James

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Loved the movie, hated the book. It spent so little time discussing the fact there is an actual pregnant woman, the first one in 25 years, and too much time with characters arguing over the same things over and over again. It’s like the pregnant woman is just an aside to the story of the fall of civilization, instead of her being the hope for the future. I was very disappointed. Very rare for me to dislike a book so much compared to the movie, but there it is. It would have been so much more interesting if the book had been told from her point of view.
