      If I were God, he said, and I were forced to pick a time to deprive the human race of the magic power of fertility and creation, I think that time would be now Following the accidental explosion of an atomic plant in Mississippi, it appears that all males are now sterile Since Mississippi blew up, no babies have been conceived anywhere on earth, so far as we can find out Oopsy daisy That can t be good.Oh, but wait a minute a baby girl is born in New York state, and the father is one Homer Adam, [...]

    2. Aurora on said:

      This is almost the same plot as Children of Men, done as comedy in the 40 s Yeah After a nuclear accident, every dude in the world is sterilized Except for one dude, a Mr Adam, who was at the bottom of a lead mine at the time So the whole world goes crazy for this guy, and the government or less takes him prisoner for the purposes of gasp artificial insemination So it s interesting, and sort of fun, the somewhat unpredictable mixture of ideas that we consider completely old fashioned and ones t [...]

      This was the first book I checked out as a twelve year old armed with a brand new adult library card A novel about the only fertile man left in the world after a horrible nuclear accident titillated my adolescent imagination I reread it sixty years later to see if it was still funny Author Pat Frank s background was as a journalist this is evident in his sparse and direct writing style Frank s far better known novel is Alas Babylon which is also apocalyptic The story is an excellent send up of b [...]

    4. Amy Freeman on said:

      For being published so long ago, this book felt very relevant It gave me a lot to think about throughout The reason I am rating it three stars instead of four or five though, is because I found myself skimming to get through some explanations Too, although it was an easy reader, I had trouble staying interested so it took me a couple days to finish All in all this book gave me sci fi, romance, and suspense fixes all while leading my thoughts to other books about apocalyptic situations and dystop [...]

    5. Richard on said:

      A farcical romp through the worlds of self perpetuating bureaucracy, bloated government, bumbling civil servants, half baked principles underlying eugenics, quaint sexism and the frailties of a flawed mankind A fast and simple read delivering an amateur s ham handed satirical view of the New Deal and World War II military management Read it if you haven t much of anything else available to kill time in a bus station,

    6. Carolyn F. on said:

      I read this book over 20 years ago Mr Adam is the only male who is able to have babies and he s bombarded with women looking for a hook up I remember it was kind of depressing but not a bad book.

    7. Craig Pittman on said:

      The apocalypse has never seemed so wacky as in this book, the very first novel by Florida born author Pat Frank, best known for his post apocalyptic classic Alas, Babylon Written and published in 1946, when Hiroshima and Nagasaki were a fresh memory, this savage satire is based on a very simple premise An accident at a nuclear bomb plant in Mississippi has wiped that state off the map and also sent radiation around the world, sterilizing every single male except one Gawky, red haired Homer Adam, [...]

    8. Andrew on said:

      I found a first edition of this book for sale at an antiques mall Critics from several newspapers loved this book, to judge from the back cover Fresh and startling comedy High grade humor sophisticated, urbane gloriously funny You ll enjoy every page Today, the plot seems hackneyed An accident at a nuclear power plant leaves every male but one on Earth sterile without, somehow, killing anyone other than half the population of Mississippi Incidentally, nobody really missed Mississippi People felt [...]

    9. Julie on said:

      In this science fiction satire written in 1946, we find Mr Adam as the only man left in the world with the ability to sire children after a atomic plant explosion He is whisked away to Washington to assist in impregnating women but the politicians leave him disgusted and he does the only thing he can think of to prevent him from being the only fertile man around I think this story has held up pretty well and while not a perfect novel, I found it pretty entertaining.

    10. Valerie Kerwin on said:

      Mildly interesting but probably good for the time it was written.

    11. Bob Keeney on said:

      Hated this story so much I didn t finish it I can count on one hand the number of books I ve done that too.

    12. Sean Rubbo on said:

      I read Alas, Babylon in 9th grade english class and really enjoyed it I recently rediscovered Pat Frank and had no idea he wrote several atomic age novels warning about the perils of it.This was written in 1946 right after the bomb was dropped It supposes a nuclear accident has sterilized all the men in the world except one Mr Homer Adam What follows is an almost farcical look at the bureaucracy of what might happen Reminded of Gogol s Dead Souls in that way The characters aren t too deep, neith [...]

    13. Nicholas on said:

      A classic sci fi novel looking at something new and actually or potentially dangerous , imagining what could go wrong, and exploring the world in which that happened Pat Frank wrote with a remarkable understanding of the implications of a suddenly sterile world from a business and political viewpoint Socially, while much the sexism of that era is very evident all women want children, for instance there is a good amount of progressive thinking in the way women are written Women in this world are [...]

    14. Silvia Reinisch on said:

      The plot sounded interesting enough, so I decided to read the novel However, although I really liked the idea of the human race facing mass extinction due to its inability to reproduce, the execution was rather poor especially the character development The individuals in the story are interesting but lack depth and color The story is written as a rather matter of fact recalling of events In Pat Frank s defense, let s say that this style is a reflection of the protagonist s profession he s a jour [...]

    15. Adam on said:

      Completely absurd, trigger ridden this one not for today s faint of heart , trashy novel from just one year after The War the big one for Americans, that is For all its ve qualities it s still better written than The Martian, but not as good a story.General idea Accident at a nuclear power plant makes all Earth s men sterile except one Women commit suicide in droves being unable to fulfill their natural duty Men have a field day Mr Adam, the sole fertile man, is whisked away to DC and lost in ad [...]

    16. Sean Randall on said:

      I found myself chuckling at spots This book at once had a great old feel about it without feeling like a typical work of the era, a clever thing to pull off Lighthearted in tone and with a great deal to recommend it for any fan of the period, there s plenty to enjoy tropes of the time included of course The married relationship is particularly delightful, and there s just something about the writing of a newspaperman that you just can t find in a modern book, no matter how hard you try.

    17. Huntleybrinkley on said:

      I think I m in a reading slump This book was meh for me It felt dated, which it obviously was, but without any redeeming nostalgia to push me through The story of the last virile man alive after a nuclear accident is mostly a little weird with some echoes of certain governmental disputes over who controls what, but there s not enough here to really grab a person But I m giving it 3 stars since it should have been a much quicker read which probably would have enhanced the enjoyment I need somethi [...]

    18. Leslie Ferrari on said:

      Another novel,written in the post WWII era and featuring a nuclear accident The author, Pat Frank was a journalist and government consultant In this book, virtually all males in the world become sterile I find it informative that all the popular fiction from the time frame feature the nuclear industry Obviously this was on everyone s mind Of amusement to me, my home town of Bowie, Maryland is mentioned as the main character visits Bowie for the opening of the racing season.

    19. Laura on said:

      Pat Frank s famous book, Alas Babylon, was my apocalyptic dystopian gateway book So this title with a plot like a sedate, gender reversed Children of Men, featuring a childlessness pandemic and a sole surviving non sterile man seemed like a good bet.I could almost forgive the occasional non PC or offhandedly sexist 40s era clunkiness since it s merely a product of its time But follow it up with long boring sections on government committee organization Nah Didn t finish.

    20. Patrick Krasniewski on said:

      A relic of the atomic age, first published in 1946, this book is about an accidental atomic explosion that sterilizes every man on earth but one, Mr Homer Adam It s of a comedy and satire of the bureaucracy of government, than an actual warning about the dangers atomic power it was a mildly funny read.This is the first novel by Pat Frank who would later write Alas Babylon , which is one of the earliest post apocalyptic novels about nuclear war.

    21. Tyler Harris on said:

      I think what I liked best about this book is how specific it was to the time period Had it been written in today s world, I believe it would have been a completely different story That being said, it was a very intriguing quick read and I enjoyed just about all of it The ending was not what I had hoped for, but I have to bring the time into consideration and how many stories needed to end I d love to read novels like this one.

    22. Matt Stevens on said:

      Good little book Definitely relevant even now as the proliferation of nuclear weapons continues Gives a good look into the insanity that is government My only gripe would be if all males would become sterilized, all male animals would as well, in theory The repopulation of humans would take a Back seat to the food shortage of protein that would result.

    23. Rae on said:

      A satirical science fiction work written just after World War 2 Frank is also the author of Alas, Babylon and both of the novels deal with the physical and social side effects of radiation Because the story is now dated, it has an almost campy feel to it not unlike what I felt while reading The Manchurian Candidate.

    24. Stephen on said:

      As a nostalgic trip to another era of science fiction its worth a read if you re into that kind of thing though it pales almost to invisibility compared to his better known and better written Alas, Babylon.

    25. Mark Flores on said:

      It s a relatively short read about the last man who has the capability to have to procreate.

    26. Dawn H. on said:

      Following a nuclear mishap all men but one are left sterile The government wants him, women want him This book, written in 1946, was an enjoyable satirical read.

    27. Aaron on said:

      Interesting premise Dated, of course, from 1946 only 48 states for example , but a fun, quick read.

    28. Karin on said:

      This is a sci fi book from the 1940s A nuclear explosion has sterilized all men and it s up to Steve Smith, journalist, to fix the problem.
