Next month we will visit a totally different genre from what we have been used to! The book is Childhood's End by Arthur C. Clark and though the vehicle used in telling the story is Science Fiction, it actually raises a lot of philosophical questions about the future of humanity.
In the near future, enormous silver spaceships appear without warning over mankind’s largest cities. They belong to the Overlords, an alien race far superior to humanity in technological development—and their purpose is to dominate the Earth. Their demands, however, are surprisingly beneficial—end war, poverty, and cruelty. Their presence, rather than signaling the end of humanity, ushers in a golden age—or so it seems.
