Waterstones Says

In a world facing human extinction and ruled by a despot, Theo Faren’s life is turned around by a chance encounter with a young woman and a group of dissenters in this haunting, timeless dystopian tale from P.D. James.

The year is 2021.

No child has been born for twenty-five years.

The human race faces extinction.

Under the despotic rule of Xan Lyppiat, the Warden of England, the old are despairing and the young cruel. Theo Faren, a cousin of the Warden, lives a solitary life in this ominous atmosphere. That is, until a chance encounter with a young woman leads him into contact with a group of dissenters. Suddenly his life is changed irrevocably as he faces agonising choices which could affect the future of mankind.

“My first PD James and it did not disappoint”

One of the most cleverly written pieces of fiction I have ever read. PD James has a way of evoking the feeling/atmosphere of the nation without having to explicitly say anything - just amazing.

Shame the film ruined... More
