Against the Fall of Night By Arthur C. Clarke

In the 10-billion-year-old city of Diaspar, no children are born—ever. Alvin is the last. And his insatiable curiosity about the outside world—which the ancient histories say has been destroyed—leads him on a quest to discover humanity’s true past. This novel asks compelling questions about the future of the human race—and the role of technology in it.
