Journal Entry 1 by wingbookfrogsterwing from Edinburgh, Scotland United Kingdom on Monday, November 27, 2017

10 out of 10

This is one of the best books I've read in a long time. A great idea, brilliantly executed. Although it is being compared to the Handmaid's Tale, it's not really the same at all, other than in it's awesomeness!

Thank you for the book. This is on a lot of wishlists so I imagine I will pass it on with another tag.

Really thought-provoking and disturbing read.

That was fun, a book that read as a Netflix series. The novel is more action than character based in my opinion. I just read the Handmaid's tale a month ago, these novels are like yin and yang to each other.

I still have Femke's address I think, I will contact here.

Update 11/08/2018

One of the best books I’ve read in a long time. I finished it a few weeks ago and recommended it to several people. Like others have said: it reads like a Netflix series.
What if women suddenly develop the ability to physically hurt or kill other people by shooting electricity from their body. What if women become the physically dominant gender over night? A story that starts off with setting this straight and taking revenge on people (men) that perhaps deserved it, but soon escalates, leaving a bitter taste after you finish the book. Bitter, because a lot of the events that are described (rape, terrorism, suppression...) occur in our world, yet the only thing that is altered in the book is the sex of the dominant gender.

Book is with me, thank you Femke85 for sending it my way. I'll do my best to read it before our monthly parisian meetup so that I can give to Florence.71

A very interesting read indeed. A novel, sure, but the non-subnatural events do exist in the actual world. Unfortunately. Whether it's this way round or the other way round. Thank you Lamilla for offering this Ray.

I will pass it on to Florence tomorrow night, at our Parisian meetup.
