Childhood's End/YMMV

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • Uncanny Valley: The faces of the new generation, which resembles the type of 'average face' created by compositing many photos together and is even more expressionless than a corpse.
  • Values Dissonance: The book was written when feminism was in its early stages, so there are a few jarringly sexist things with the men running the show and Jean only acclimating to New Athens when she learns to appreciate the kitchen.
    • However, it attempts to challenge racism, making "nigger" a polite description no more taboo than "republican".
