A dystopian trilogy?

Is there a four-part film adaptation on the way?


#3

I read something about it either being a film series or made for tv movies?


#4

So… Nancy Kress’s Beggars in Spain but they sleep. Thanks muchly,


#5

Pity about the changes in cover design.


#6

That’s a really popular plot device, but it’s really not how evolution works.

I read the first one of these. It was decent.

The series starts off well, but bottoms out in a pool of tired mutants…er…“brilliants are people too and deserve love and respect” tropes beat to death by the X-Men since the 1960s. Also, the final book is filled with genetic supermen with plans and strategies unworthy of 3rd graders playing Risk. Clearly meant as a pitch for movies or a TV series. I hope Hollywood spends its money elsewhere.
