Childhood's End is a science fiction novel by Arthur C. Clarke, first published in 1953. The novel tells the story of Earth's transformation under the guidance of mysterious extraterrestrial beings known as the Overlords. These beings usher in a golden age of peace and prosperity, but as humanity reaches new heights of technological and spiritual evolution, they begin to question the true intentions of their alien benefactors. As the Overlords' ultimate plan is revealed, it forces humanity to confront profound existential questions about the nature of existence and the fate of their species. Childhood's End is a thought-provoking exploration of themes such as transcendence, evolution, and the potential consequences of humanity's pursuit of knowledge and power.
