Excerpt:
P.D. James has a great writing style. As far as literary and grammatical elements go, I have no qualms. However, the pace of the novel and character developments, both painfully slow at times, as well as the resolution of the story all move into this grey area for me. I can honestly say that I will not reread this book, and unless you are ridiculously into the whole dystopian novel which doesn’t really seem like a dystopian novel thing, I probably wouldn’t recommend this book to you either. However, If you do like the ultra dystopian setting you may enjoy the film more than the book, as the film is much more dystopian-esque (disclaimer: I thoroughly hated the film, even more than I disliked the book)

This is a great book. P. D. James has clearly displayed that she can suceed at anything she turns her hand to. i even found myself enjoying this novel even more than some of the Dalgliesh books.
There is one word that can describe this book. That word is............Lovely...........mainly because it is. The plot is, perhaps somewhat simple, but that just makes for an easier read. and it does start fairly slowly. But it is lovely. Aside from being a futuristic novel, it is also a very tender lovestory. One of the things that make this book great is the fact that it is a nice old fashioned story. Some of the ideas Ms James had are now, clearly not correct, but could well have been. everything she has written is the product of a very logical mind and, if things had gone differently, none of them are beyond the bounds of our imaginations. Some of the things she writes even seem comical compared to now. Which, whilst probably not intentional, does add flavour to the story. There is also good, adventure, intirgue, action, etc.
Well done, I would reccomend this to one and all as proof of Ms James title as one of the best writer's the world has ever seen. I shall savour every one of her novels, because i only expect there to be two, possibly three, more, because, let's face it people, she won't be around for ever, enjoy her while you can!!!!

I liked the movie, but the book is MUCH better and not for the usual reasons . I found the story in the book to be much richer, there were just much more "stuff" in it. The book spent much more time on the description of the Omegan's which is central to the story, and the ending was MUCH better.

This is one of those books that makes you think. The first two chapters took me forever to read because after each paragraph, I'd set the book down and just contemplate the premise of this book: what if, suddenly, no more babies were born? Definitely worth reading.
