Childhood's End

This novel tells the tale of the last generation of mankind on Earth. All man's development in space and travel are stopped by alien "overlords" who take over Earth, establishing a benevolent dictatorship which eliminates poverty, ignorance and disease. This golden age ends abruptly as the overlords bend to the will of a superior intelligence which demands Earth's destruction.

This may seem like a nerdy book but I read it in school and fell in love. I normally don't like "alien" books but this one was just so different then the typical scifi books you imagine.

Why can't the overlords show themselves when they first come to earth?

Well that's the whole point of the book.

You have to read this book! It's a classic

Read it and tell me what you think! I would love to discuss this book with you!

I give this book
