Miranda Reynolds has lost her home, her job and her husband – all thanks to an economic collapse that has brought America to its knees.
The shops are empty; the streets no longer safe. Miranda and her daughter Emma have nowhere left to turn.
There is one final hope, a self-sufficient haven for women who want to live a life free from men. Femlandia.
For Miranda, the secluded Femlandia is a last resort. Life outside the gates is fraught with danger, but there’s something just as sinister going on within.
Welcome to Femlandia… It’s no place like home.
I love a dystopian book and the authors other books, so when my partner bought me this for Valentine’s Day I couldn’t wait to get stuck in.
Overall I really enjoyed this one. It’s scarily realistic and the writing style gripping.
There are quite a lot of hard hitting topics in this one with quite a few shocking revelations.
I’ve given this one a 4/5 as I was slightly disappointed by the ending and the epilogue. I don’t want to say too much and give anything away.
If you enjoy dystopian fiction, give this one a go.
Yes, Dalcher is trying to out Atwood, Atwood with these books. Sadly, there are a few things that are a touch far fetched in her books, and there’s no humor anywhere. Not sure I want to read more of her novels.
