The Book of Flora
The Book of Flora | Meg Elison
7 posts | 4 read | 3 to read
In this Philip K. Dick Award-winning series, one woman's unknowable destiny depends on a bold new step in human evolution. In the wake of the apocalypse, Flora has come of age in a highly gendered post-plague society where females have become a precious, coveted, hunted, and endangered commodity. But Flora does not participate in the economy that trades in bodies. An anathema in a world that prizes procreation above all else, she is an outsider everywhere she goes, including the thriving all-female city of Shy. Now navigating a blighted landscape, Flora, her friends, and a sullen young slave she adopts as her own child leave their oppressive pasts behind to find their place in the world. They seek refuge aboard a ship where gender is fluid, where the dynamic is uneasy, and where rumors flow of a bold new reproductive strategy. When the promise of a miraculous hope for humanity's future tears Flora's makeshift family asunder, she must choose: protect the safe haven she's built or risk everything to defy oppression, whatever its provenance.

This book didn't knock my socks off, but I did enjoy it. I think the first book was my favourite. I did like Flora and the secondary characters. And, it is one of those books that get you thinking about the world and possible futures. The trilogy as a whole definitely touches on a lot of subjects. So, ultimately I am happy I read it, and I do recommend it, but not something I consider a favourite read ever. I listened to the audio & liked it.

Hello, my pretties!

Going to dive in and do a reread of the whole series because I can‘t remember especially what happened in The Book of Etta.

Oh man! I sorta forgot about this series! The third book is coming out next week! I put some Amazon points to good use to get it. I wasn‘t a huge fan of the second book (it was getting a little much) but I look forward to seeing how the series ends.

Super stoked for this release next week! I adore the way Meg Ellison crafts her post-apocalyptic world and the characters she populates it with, and I really can‘t wait to read Flora‘s book.

This is book 3 in Meg Elison‘s Road to Nowhere trilogy. I did not enjoy this as much as the others. The focus is no longer on survival and community building in the post-apocalyptic era (thus book starts right where The Book of Etta ended). The focus here ison lgbtq, catamites, horsewomen, and other who do not fit the male/female gender dichotomy who are looking for a community where they can be accepted and safe. See comments for more.

AudreyMorris Elison continues her world building as the characters travel to different communities—but she is unable to give any one the justice it deserves. I also thought all the traveling (lots!) creates a continuity problem from book 2, where traveling is difficult and dangerous, especially for women. Still an interesting read, but does not live up to The Book of the Unnamed Midwife (book 1, Philip K Dick award winner). #postapocalyptic (edited) 2mo
