There were lots of things I liked about this book, but it wasn‘t unputdownable. I felt the plot was meandering in places.

This was Book 6 from #MountTBR.

DivineDiana At least your working on the TBR! 🙂 5mo

I finished Incarceron last night (Wow!) and am going to start this one that I picked up at the #BNbookhaul. This book is the winner of the James Tiptree, Jr. award, for exploring and expanding gender.

Bookladylinda I think I saw this book at the book store today. 🤔 5mo

Just started reading this book and the story is good but I‘m not enjoying the narration. I hope it gets better because it really has potential.

RaimeyGallant Good to know. :) And welcome to Litsy! #LitsyWelcomeWagon Some of us put together Litsy tips to help new Littens navigate the site. It's the link in my bio on my page in case you need it. Or if you prefer how-to videos, @chelleo put some together at the link in her bio. @LitsyWelcomeWagon 13mo

Latest charity shop find, £1.75!

I've heard this is a particularly good book, with a really interesting concept - according to the blurb, a virus wipes out all the men on the planet leaving just females, with males thought to be extinct until the main character River meets one.

Anyone read this before?

This book had such an interesting concept - a matriarchy after a virus wipes out men - but unfortunately it wasn't fully realised. The world felt half built and too reminiscent of a patriarchal world. And a lot of the concepts felt a little stereotypical and clichéd. I enjoyed the read but it wasn't particularly original or thought-provoking.

I just finished 'Who runs the World?' by Virginia Bergin. It's a story about a future without men. Fifteen year old River hasn't thought about men and women until she finds Mason, a runaway boy. At first boys were represented as the evil guys and Bergin repeatedly showed this with the words 'Man. Men. Murder. Guns. War. Kill'. But after a while River discovers the truth about the male gender. I enjoyed the book but it didn't have this wow moment.

'She is miles from home.
She feels no fear.
Why would she? There are no predators. No such thing as ghosts.
Fear belongs to another time. It lives on only in the memories of others.
She feels no fear at all.
Not even when she sees it: the body lying in the middle of the road.' Who Runs The World?, Virginia Bergin. 💞 #booklover #feminist #books #booklove
