    Finished The Children of Men and it is one of those rare cases where I actually thought the film was better.

    The first half of the novel is a combination of world building and diary entries. I didn't really care for the protagonist's diary entries about growing up with his cousin. The world is very much an Orwellian dystopia, albeit without the ability to have children.

    The second half of the novel was where the film drew inspiration (someone becoming pregnant and them being on the run). It was a VERY good read for that half.

      Thanks for the input. I may someday get around to reading it.
