Book 4: The Children of Men by P.D. James

  • This location is shown only to members

In August, we’ll be discussing The Children of Men by P.D. James, a dystopian novel set in England in the year 2021. The Children of Men demonstrates the results of mass infertility and a society that is steadily depopulating. There is a 2006 film adaptation of the novel, with the same title, that I would recommend everyone to watch for this meetup. If anyone would like to think of some questions and discussion points for this book, please write a comment below.

To add, I will be collecting $1 from each participant at the meet which will go towards the $15 monthly administration cost. Any contribution above $15 will be saved until our Christmas meet for drinks and/or food for all survivors!

    This has nothing to do with Children of Men, but if you get a chance, go see Snowpiercer. Sure, it has a few plot holes, but it's a crazy train ride into a frozen dystopian future, with its share of WTF moments!

      I will keep my eyes open Leonie so that I can say Hi. We are also going to the Pub around the corner in Elgin Street after if you want to come for a drink. There are a few from the Science Fiction group going.
