    Genetic mutation has devastated the world. In the bleak, primitive society that has emerged from its ruins, any sign of deviation is ruthlessy hunted out and destroyed. David lies in fear of discovery, for he is a part of a secret group of children who are able to communicate with each other by transferring thought-shapes into each other's minds. As they grow older they feel increasingly isolated. Then one of them marries a 'norm' - with terrifying consequences.

    St. Amand says: "We need a sequel!"
    "The Chrysalids - An new perspective on evolution"

    Story
    Would you listen to The Chrysalids again? Why?

    It is an interesting and enjoyable listen/read. It takes on the idea of evolution and religion, in a fictional setting. Not only does it entertain, it also makes the listener/reader think.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like Sophie. There's a feeling of care I have for her from the beginning and I feel sorry for her.


    What about Robert Powell’s performance did you like?

    He was understandable. His character voices were fitting.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I although I think I ended up doing it in 2.
