This is a great story about a (somewhat) utopian society, "Women's Country" and the secrets that occur to keep it that way. Makes me wonder; is a society so "utopian" if half of its population is kept in the dark? When some of the characters travel away from "Women's Country", they find that the outside world is quite different. This book always keeps me up late reading! (I've read it four times).

Laura Croteau, July 20, 2007 (view all comments by Laura Croteau)
Arresting, emotionally engaging, sometimes disturbing, and entirely too believable - this book has all the qualities necessary to a good futuristic dystopia, and it will make you wonder about the here and now. While there is definitely an element of the feminist about this fiction, men and women alike will enjoy Tepper's meticulous and surprising plotting, and the interesting methods she uses to build suspense and tension. That's the thing about this author - somehow Tepper manages to acheive literary quality without losing that get-lost-in-it-good-read aspect that keeps me, for one, coming back for more.
