3 stars
The human race has become infertile, and the last generation to be born is now adult. Civilization itself is crumbling as suicide and despair become commonplace. Oxford historian Theodore Faron, apathetic toward a future without a future, spends most of his time reminiscing. Then he is approached by Julian, a bright, attractive woman who wants him to help get her an audience with the cousin, the powerful Warden of England. She and her band of unlikely revolutionaries may just awaken his desire to live. . . and they may also hold the key to survival for the human race.
Generally I liked the book. It seemed to be a little light on the details of the basic storyline. It read more like a short story. Nine times out of ten the book is much better than the movie interpretation. But this may be that one of ten where the movie was better than the book. The movie supplies more details and feels more fleshed out than the book. An example of this would be the difference between the way immigration is handled in the book as opposed to the movie. The book glosses over the overall treatment of the subject, but the movie is much more specific in the way immigrants were treated. All in all I liked the book, but loved the movie.

I'm going to try to break this down for you a little more.

4. In the empty "comment" box at the bottom, paste your review. (Put your cursor in the comment box, right click, select Paste.)

Does that help?
