I am in two minds over this book however. I found it quite slow to get into and couldn't completely work out what was going on at first. There was some sort of economic crash leading to a post apocalyptic world but there are no details... The story is told by Miranda who along with her sixteen year old daughter Emma, is struggling to find food and survive. I found some of the scenes a bit disturbing to read at the start and one was particularly horrific.
Once I got to about a third of the way through the book I was gripped and couldn't put it down however. Miranda and Emma arrive at Femlandia, a commune founded on the hatred of men, purely for women. The community has huge electric barbed wire fences surrounding it but was this to keep people out or to keep the women inside? I was racing through the pages at this point. Was it really the idealic place that it seemed? What were the women hiding? There was clearly something sinister going on!
Although there is a clear resolution which I liked I found the ending slightly disappointing, a bit too predictable and slightly rushed.
Overall I loved the premise of the book but I found it didn't quite deliver in the same way as the previous two novels. I love Christina Dalcher's original ideas though so will definitely read her next book!
Rating 3.5 stars
I love how Dalcher gets to the point, but still leaves me questioning the issues raised in each of her books.
