Childhood’s End by Arthur C. Clark (1953)

end.jpgWhat happens to humanity when alien Overlords take over Earth and eliminate both war and poverty?  Sounds like Utopia, right?  But not everyone agrees.  Without challenge and strife does mankind stop progressing?

And what if after 100 years of alien control, humanity discovers the Overlords have a long-game no one could have imagined?

Childhood’s End was Arthur C. Clark’s first successful science fiction novel and is considered by many to be his best novel.  I read this in my 8th grade reading class, and couldn’t put it down!

Middle School Reading Level, 226 pages, Published in 1953.
