    1. If science fiction themes can be distinguished as "science fiction as character" (Star Trek), "science fiction as background" (Star Wars), "science fiction as trigger" (ET), "science fiction as story" (The Matrix), then The Breeds of Man definitely falls into the "science fiction as story" theme. It falls squarely between hard and soft sci-fi. The science isn't as plausible as say, "Deep Impact," but far more believable than say "Starship Troopers." The story plunges you into a world where the A [...]

    2. If you are looking for a fast-paced tale of a near possible future, The Breeds of Man is not the book for you. But, if you are looking for a story with good character development and an interesting storyline, this may be right up your alley. This story just kind of rolls along and there is not a lot of action. But what you will find is a story that makes you think about what is in store for us in the near future.I was interested in the characters and what was going to happen to them, but I wasn' [...]

    3. Another book off my to-be-read shelf. I doubt it's available anywhere, and it's definitely dated, but the premise - the cure for an AIDS pandemic creates an interesting form of sterility, and how the "new" homo sapiens lives and eventually interacts with the "old" - is interesting and well done. A quick read with some food for thought.

    4. MAD SCIENCE creates a new subspecies of human who change sex every month starting at puberty! Yet nothing very interesting comes of this. They have to keep their existence a secret from the outside world, blah blah same old thing. Most of the plot is ludicrously implausible. Do not recommend.

    5. For some reason this book took me about 4 months to read. I kept reading other books in the middle of it. Despite of that, I really enjoyed the book. I love science fiction, but much of it is bad. This book is good.

    6. An odd mix of 50's and 80's style sci-fi, with a dated background, and the occasional "sex sells right?" moment. The basic premise is interesting, (I won't give it away here) but almost wasn't enough to save the book. Barely a three.

    7. MAD SCIENCE creates a new subspecies of human who change sex every month starting at puberty! Yet nothing very interesting comes of this. They have to keep their existence a secret from the outside world, blah blah same old thing. Most of the plot is ludicrously implausible. Do not recommend.

    8. I have never read any of Busby's other books, although I am familiar with his name. This book was published in 1988, but wears well. The premise of society's problem of women being unable to have more than one child with the same man was an interesting one, and the solution was even more so.
