Thought provoking but not for the squemish
on May 31, 2011
Interesting book, the ending is not at all what I expected.
This book is not for the squemish, the opening scene has the cops hunting down illegal children and shooting them. They catch upto one of the runaway mothers and surround her, she holds out her baby saying its just a doll not real and they shoot it. The graphic deaths in this book especially of children is a bit much.
Is it thought provoking though, could this really happen? The government is corrupt and has most the population branwashed, they decalre that you need a license to be a parent with no way qualify to get the license all the children become illegals and are shot on sight. Schools are closed and burned down, hospital maturnity wards closed down, daycares closed up, etc.
The only ones that can get a license are the elite that are in the government, they are trying to create a race of supreme humans and rid the world of common humans. Kind of like what Hitler tried to do.
I won't spoil the ending for you all but it is not what I expected at all.
Overall a good read but lot of violence and graphic death scenes.
