Summary

Humans were forced to leave Earth when the pollution became a threat. Mankind could no longer live on the planet. They traveled 189 light years to their new home they named Horizon. When they left Earth they abandoned much and over the years they grew, developed, and matured. A long time in humanities' future they returned to Earth and found something else living there.

Any additional comments?

Expanded from two earlier shorter stories, Progeny's Children recounts the evolution of what is left behind on earth when it's human survivors abandoned the planet they had rendered uninhabitable and what happens when their descendants return.

The production is excellent, and Christopher Allport is able to convey robotic voices without becoming unpleasant to the ear then, seamlessly switch to more human dialogue. No easy task, and he makes the futuristic world feel much more realistic because of it.
This is an excellent story, thought provoking and exciting without constant confrontation of a military type. It looks into the nature of society and upbringing and changes that could be made for the better of humankind.

My one major criticism is the over use of repetition in explaining parts of what has gone before, especially as I tend to listen to books over several consecutive hours. However, even this could be helpful if heard in short bursts.

Ray Jay Perrault is a modern classic-style science fiction writer of great talent and insight. All of his stories are well worth reading and this Audible production enhances the already absorbing and enjoyable book.

Progeny's children

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The story was great and took a few twists and turns with some surprises, both good and evil. The author combined two of his previous short stories into this full length book. Great scifi book
