The Shore of Women | [Pamela Sargent]

The Shore of Women

Women rule the world in this suspenseful love story set in a post-nuclear future. Having expelled men from their vast walled cities to a lower-class wilderness, the women in this futuristic universe dictate policy and chart the future through control of scientific and technological advances. Among their laws are the rules for reproductive engagement, an act now viewed as a means of procreation rather than an act of love.

Publisher's Summary

Women rule the world in this suspenseful love story set in a post-nuclear future. Having expelled men from their vast walled cities to a lower-class wilderness, the women in this futuristic universe dictate policy and chart the future through control of scientific and technological advances. Among their laws are the rules for reproductive engagement, an act now viewed as a means of procreation rather than an act of love. In this rigidly defined environment, a chance meeting between a woman exiled from the female world and a wilderness man triggers a series of feelings, actions, and events that ultimately threaten the fabric of the women's constricted society. Trying to evade the ever-threatening female forces and the savage wilderness men, the two lovers struggle to find a safe haven and reconcile the teachings of their upbringings with their newly awakened feelings.

    "Gripping narration in Audible format"
    What made the experience of listening to The Shore of Women the most enjoyable?

    The voices of the actors make listening to this book as good as a film. The characters had rich texture revealed by adept narration of Sargent's engaging text.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The first person perspectives of Arvil as he struggles with radical change of his surroundings, his faith and ultimately in his very understanding of the workings of the universe, make the story a true adventure.


    What about Stephen Largay and Sarah Ellis ’s performance did you like?

    The performances are first rate. Largay produces an array of voices that vividly depict the wild world outside the walls of the city. He brings to life the gruff, the arrogant, and the meek among the men that Arvil encounters. The voice brings out Arvil's frailty and his wonder at the changes around him. Sara Ellis's portrayal of Birana contrasts sharply with Largay's earthy overtones. She brings a crisper and more sterile tone to her voice, which brings to life the sterility of life within the city walls.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    On the first day, I listened for hours - on the way to work and then back again...then I played the story through my phone in my breast pocket around the house all evening as I cleaned the house, so I could listen more.


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to listening to more of Largay's work.
