A bit of all of themThis is a straightforward and somewhat leisurely story that touches on very deep and difficult themes mostly indirectly but explicitly in the last quarterTypical English IdyllMidwich is a sleepy English village in the late 1950s One day everyone in the village blacks out They awake apparently unharmed only to discover that all the fertile women are pregnant but the children they give birth to are not like other human children and turn out to have extraordinary and disturbing powersIt starts off by establishing the uneventful normality of the village With dawning awareness of what has happened most people indulge in denial and eventually a degree of acceptance The abnormal becomes normal and things get stranger stillWomenThe big flaw of this book is its neglect of female characters es
