The word 'intresting' is often used when trying to be kind, and still give an opinion,my opinion of this book is the same. I did, in all honesty, find certain parts of the book to be fascinating and thought provoking. However, I was deeply disturbed by the author's view of society,and by the way that he thinks - the evidence being the story in the book itself. I was horrified at the ending, and repulsed by so many of the points made by the book. I found the entire read extreemly, almost intinctively disturbing.

Being forced to read this book, I thought it stank. I mean, who wants to read a book about aliens, opps i mean Overlords, taking over the earth and turning the children into robots who cannot think for themselves. A lot the the book was confusing and just weird to read. The indivisuaily of the Overlords and the children is taken away. You can't tell one Overords from another and the children have no human capabilities. They aren't even human anymore don't get to lead a normal life. And the fact that Clarke is questioning Christianity is just wrong. You can't write a book that goes against one faith. Why didn't Clarke write about Buddism or something else?
