A classic - long overdue.

Childhood's End - Arthur C. Clarke

Just as humanity is set to open up space the ships of the Overlords appear in the sky above the major cities in the world. But what are their intentions?


At the beginning of their reign, they bring peace and prosperity to Earth. Everybody has everything they need, can do what they want, go where they want. With interesting results. And how long can this last?

Quite thought provoking and very well written.
