Halfway, The End of Men

This is a really, really interesting book. It’s a first novel, too. WOW.

As the Plague has killed off most men, the US Army is circulating calls for volunteers.

Faith, whose husband (deceased) was a soldier, is one of the first to sign up.

A Plague That Kills Only Men

Self admits, the plot did seem a little far-fetched when she first heard it, but Christina Sweeney-Baird explains why about halfway through, and it is not completely out of left field.

Lucy, who’d only been a midwife for fifteen months when the Plague hit: “Of the two-hundred eighty-four boys I’ve helped to deliver in the last six months, twenty-nine have survived.”

Readers attend a live birth on p. 209, and everyone in the delivery room (including this reader) is painfully holding her breath until the determination of sex is made.

Sentence of the Day, 2nd Wednesday of September 2021

Almost every man in Moscow has died but Mikhail.

The End of Men, p. 182

And Mikhail, unfortunately, is a wife beater. Almost every day, his victimized wife goes to the Cathedral of Christ the Savior and prays for her husband’s imminent demise. But God does not hear her prayers.

Stay safe, dear blog readers. Stay safe.
