Superb book, just finished it. Heat

Looks interesting, cheers op!

Yes thank you

I read this a while ago. Utterly fascinating sci-fi. Wonderfully imagined and written. Absolutely worth buying.

I bought it when it was this price previously. Really enjoyed it. Thrilling and thought provoking. You can't go wrong for 99p

Great book, worth buying even at full price. Heat.

But is it about children? I have to admit I judge books by their covers and titles. I am liking this cover! I’m not liking the name. Children of Men was good though so I’m trying not to hate it but really, if I’m honest, which I am, I hate the title.

A great book that keeps you guessing to the end; not only that, you cannot choose between wanting the humans to win, or their adversaries; the story makes you empathise so much with both sides.

LOVED this book. Bought it last time it was on offer for 99p. Absolute bargain.

Very good sci fi. Straddles the line between soft, fantastical sci fi and hard sci fi really well. Some fascinating sections and quite a neat, pleasing ending too actually.

I’m going to have to actually do my own research, amn’t I? The previous post is off putting, I like hard sci fi and military sci fi and fantasy but not soft sci fi ‘cause that’s for wimps

Didn't really like it 3/10

It's 99p - take a risk !

For what it's worth - I've been a sci-fi fan for a very long time and this brought something new to the table. And it's more figuratively about children than literally. Well worth 99p in my opinion.

I LOVED IT

It's not about children, although there are some children in it.

It's about the end of the world, end of the human race, it has space ships which can travel for hundreds of years while the crew sleep and the ships AI goes a bit mental and somewhere out there is a new planet which the humans want to make their own but something else is evolving there already and is not going to give up without a fight....

Cheers OP

Thanks for this ,heated and purchased!

I borrowed this from the library a couple of weeks ago and was absolutely glued to it, so much so I finished in four days. Since then I noticed it was 99p on Amazon and have told every work colleague with a Kindle to give it a try at this price, it's probably my favourite read this year.
My partner is reading my library copy at the moment although I'm not so sure she's as infatuated with it as I was.
