rating: 3 of 5 stars
I give this book 3 1/2 stars. The plot was compelling, the concept intriguing. It follows a man through 10 months of his life in a world where mankind has lost the ability to reproduce. There is not a fertile man in the world, and the youngest people are now twenty-five. James' imaginings of the impact of worldwide infertility are well-realized and believable.
I took the rating down from four stars because James' sentences are quite convoluted and she gets really bogged down in descriptions. In the midst of the climax of the book, she has a paragraph taking up most of a page which describes the trees around a lake. No thanks.
