Firstly, wow.

Begins as a first-encounter type of science-fiction that proceeds to thwart every possible pre-conceived notion experienced readers might have developed. “Childhood’s End” is altogether about the final hours of mankind, the evolution of humanity to the next stage and its subsumption, as one of many sentient races, into an unknowable collective consciousness. Part paraphysics, part para astrology and part pure, undiluted genius, this is possibly the best science-fiction novel I’ve ever read.
