This novel, in the category of apocalyptic fiction, is the story of humankind when all men become sterile and life is ending. Franklyn-Robbins does a partially voiced rendition of the male characters; his women's voices are not at all differentiated. The main voice does not mesh with the portrait of the main character, Theodore Faron, and narrator of the story. The characterizations are hard to tell apart, making the novel difficult to understand. An occasional lapse of voice between characters is not up to Recorded Books' usual standards. It's hard to tell whether the narrator spoiled the book or the book is just not right for the narrator's voice. E.F. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR 94]
