Children of Time

Thibault’s Score: 5/5
Sometimes, you come across a book that is so good that you recommend it to everyone that you know - however, in cases where that book is fiction, describing why it needs to be read without spoiling the plot can be difficult. Children of Time was recommended to me by my wife Katarina, who has great taste in science fiction.
It is a story about evolutionary biology, the end of man, and the rise of a new intelligent species. The story manages to grab your attention and remain fast paced, despite happening over the course of several millennia.
I will not say more, out of fear of spoiling the surprises that you will encounter. When embarking on this great literary journey.
Let me say this: it is likely the best science fiction book that I have ever read.
Most of my articles are book reviews, but I also write about many other topics.
