Top ten world-ending novels

Justin Cronin is the author of the trilogy: The Passage, The Twelve, and The City of Mirrors. One of his ten top world-ending novels, as shared at the B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy blog:
Children of Men, by P.D. James.

Somewhat different from the (excellent) movie—no spectacular action set pieces here—but a probing, deeply British story of a slow-motion apocalypse in which humanity loses the ability to reproduce.
