Thank you @randomhouse for the gifted copy of The Farm! Perfectly timed for some summer reading, available May 7th, this story of a fictional retreat where women are paid handsomely to be surrogates is full of juicy moral dilemmas to ponder. One might say there were a few too many issues, and characters, thrown in... Full review: http://www.bornandreadinchicago.com/2019/05/the-farm-by-joanne-ramos-arc-review....

The novel touched on several important issues, told through numerous characters. Every issue was broadly touched and every character had almost an equal part in the story, losing the impact I was hoping for.

I loved the premise, and truly, this book had a lot of potential. I just felt something lacked. I honestly wanted to love this book that I‘d shout out to the world to read it now. But it didn‘t have that impact on me.

Good Premise, but-

The book makes a statement, however little growth for the main character. She doesn‘t triumph in her struggles. If you are looking for that kind of development you won‘t get it here. Jane is the same person in the end as she was when her story begins. Caution is her gain.

The author describes her work as a “window” into the life of an immigrant. She explores the lengths they will go through for that “American Dream”.

I keep seeing people say this was a good idea but it wasn't executed very well. I think it was executed excellently. It's not really dystopian as it was only a relatively small group of people involved in the farm, and for all we know something like this could be happening right now. I thought it was more a satirical social commentary about how we view one another and the disparities between those who serve and those who are served. Book club rec

Tons of potential but the execution fell completely flat for me. The suspense of the story climax was, well, anticlimactic, and I never connected to the characters or their experiences. I'm really bummed it just didn't deliver!

Mowen036 I agree!! If it was just a little longer or the story lines were a little more developed. It felt like a different version of Nine Perfect Strangers. A book that I also didn‘t like. 2w
kyraleseberg @Mowen036 Completely agree. The story was vaguely creepy but certainly not the dystopian novel it was advertised to be. And that ending! It felt too abrupt with the time jump and was just super frustrating! It honestly felt like an early draft where the story hasn't been fully realized yet. 2w

The Farm is a place where surrogates (hosts) live. These hosts, most often immigrants, are paid a great deal of money by wealthy people to produce a healthy child. The Farm is a beautiful place, with organic food, private trainers, & daily massages. Sounds like heaven until the hosts realize that for the whole pregnancy, they are trapped where their every move.

Yes, this could have been an amazing book but it fell flat for me.

This pregnant Mama is delighted. A newly released novel and some super cute Mother‘s Day cupcakes plus chocolate milk!
This novel is fits well into the theme of Mother‘s Day AND being pregnant! The Farm by Joanne Ramos sounds kinda insane. It‘s about a Farm for down and out pregnant women having babies for the wealthy.

BookBumming Synopsis; Nestled in New York‘s Hudson Valley is a luxury retreat boasting every amenity: organic meals, personal fitness trainers, daily massages—and all of it for free. In fact, you‘re paid big money to stay here—more than you‘ve ever dreamed of. The catch? 2w
BookBumming For nine months, you cannot leave the grounds, your movements are monitored, and you are cut off from your former life while you dedicate yourself to the task of producing the perfect baby. For someone else. 2w
BookBumming Jane, an immigrant from the Philippines, is in desperate search of a better future when she commits to being a “Host” at Golden Oaks—or the Farm, as residents call it. But now pregnant, fragile, consumed with worry for her family, Jane is determined to reconnect with her life outside. Yet she cannot leave the Farm or she will lose the life-changing fee she‘ll receive on the delivery of her child. 2w

This book drove me CRAZY! It falls prey to what society at large does: focus on the desires of adults at the expense of/not even mentioning the effect on the child who is turned into a product, while ignoring medical ramifications of IVF w/donor eggs in favor of examining race/class between adults. Also, some bizarre character choices - among other things, women who have never given birth are not generally recruited by agencies to be surrogates.

Nothing against the story. It's just not for me. It only confirms that literary fiction is just not my cup of tea.

This book is driving me NUTS. Not only is it slow, dull (I would DNF if I weren't reading it for work) but it's maybe 5% about surrogacy and the rest is a (plodding) broad look at race/economic division. Which is fine, but doesn't deliver the advertised premise. And if you think this is a sort-of dystopia, it's not. The control, loss of physical autonomy, surrogate dorms, abortions for "defects," commercialized babies etc. all happen in real life.

First, the synopsis promises more than the book actually delivers. Second, labeling book as “dystopian” is bad marketing. What happens in the book is currently happening today, in America. THE FARM would have been a powerful book on class and greed within our society if it lived up to its synopsis and focused on the marginalized community instead of reading as a cloak for the wealthy.

Such a promising concept and a strong (albeit slow) start, but ultimately it fell flat for me. The characters were never fully fleshed out as real people with any depth, and the plot was maddeningly predictable. It felt like there was a really strong outline for the book and just a lack of success at filling in the detail to drive to the end (which was strange and unsatisfying).👇

cariashley I did enjoy reading about a slice of the immigrant underclass in New York City as the nannies and baby nurses nurturing the city's most privileged spawn are not people who get the limelight too frequently.

An easy read but anyone who has read The Handmaids Tale is going to be bored by the lack of depth. It‘s just run-of-the-mill chick lit with a little on-trend hot button issues layered over it. Bring it on vacation, enjoy the story but don‘t expect to come to any profound conclusions.

I can‘t stop thinking about this one. Imagine you are an uber wealthy woman at the helm of your company. Pregnancy, labor & delivery, maternity leave, these are things that will slow you down in a highly competitive world in which men don‘t have to consider these things. Why not source it out? And as the “Farm”, why not make a huge profit using mostly immigrant women who could not make this kind of money otherwise?

There‘s lots to love about this book - a great and timely premise, strong female characters that I cared about, and (maybe most appealing of all, for me) noteworthy Handmaid‘s Tale-ishness. I wish the writing hadn‘t felt so inconsistent, and that the ending hadn‘t left so many questions unanswered. But it had powerful things to say, and I‘m quite glad I read it (and I‘d definitely be interested if the author wrote a sequel). #thefarm #netgalley

Aluciddreamer @Cinfhen I agree. I wanted Jane to have more of a backbone and I was hoping she would have been there by the end. I wasn‘t crazy about her ending up with Mei 😕. But the book was very thought provoking especially with the leaps and bounds that technology takes every year. 4mo
Cinfhen Yea, I thought ending up living at Mei was a weak ending. But the ideas presented and look at class, motherhood, wealth, family, responsibility were all REALLY GOOD (edited) 4mo
Aluciddreamer @Cinfhen I agree. I slide through the book very quickly for all of the presented ideas. I thought the author was really just scratching the surface on each of these characters. I think I wanted her to go deeper. 4mo

Interesting, timely ideas packed into an imperfect yet highly readable narrative. The plot itself is engaging and at times suspenseful, but the real strengths lie in the more subtle themes throughout: the striking class divisions, the stark reality of working-poor immigrants making impossible choices in pursuit of the American Dream, the lengths to which mothers will go for their children, and the ways that capitalism places profits over people.

As a debut this book really strikes a chord. It‘s wholly believable, current, relevant and completely nerve wrecking. The farm is an upscale facility housing mostly immigrant women who are looking for financial opportunities. Using their bodies as a commodity, the women are surrogate carriers for the wealthiest clients in the world. It‘s a story about class, opportunity, exploitation, chasing dreams, altruism and the double edge sword of wealth.

The farm is a resort like retreat/hospital/prison for women who rent their surrogacy services through an agency catering to families of the extreme wealthy. The world here is a tick off from current day. Its this parallel to the current political culture that makes this novel work so well. And, without giving anything away, the ending was pitch perfect. Would make a great read for book clubs. #netgalley

Joanna Ramos has written a novel that makes the story so plausible, so real, vibrant and convincing. Its about sacrifice, the future of pregnancy, immigrants chasing their American dreams and how our circumstances can sometimes play the hand of luck, depending where your cards fall.
Riveting and unforgettable
