If you are looking for epic Amazon fight scenes this is NOT the book for you. I was expecting fierce female warriors to be fighting each other for control over land and the male population. But this was not the case. I would have added much more action to much village life and not enough war life.
She is able to paint amazing picture with just her voice. I was truly able to see this strange futuristic time.
disappointment.... not what i was expecting. But not an awful book. It was well written.
Out of her comfort zone I think, but well done. A story that captures your imagination and makes you wonder, "what if?" Hardest part to read is about the dogs, but Laurie King always puts a bit of and edge in her novels. Glad I read it.
I'm a bibliophile since early childhood. Love speculative fiction, odd premises, mystery novels that teach about different places and times.
Speculative fiction about a world where men have become fragile and rare, and women run the world out of necessity. It's a bit sprawling, but it's a good read. The dogs might well be the best part of it in some ways. It covers the complexity of the male/female spectrum, in some interesting concepts. Not a great book, but a good read.
