A Highly Intelligent Character-Driven Dystopian Novel! Imagine a time and place where violence is curtailed, and women dominate in all areas. Discrimination and racism no longer exist.  How has this been achieved? It’s called the Curfew.  In Britain, after the government determines that most violent crime occurs because of men, they are electronically tagged withContinue reading “Curfew by Jayne Cowie @CowieJayne @BerkleyPub @NetGalley #dystopian #sciencefiction #mystery #fiction”

Susanne’s Review: Klara, I simply do not know how to express my love for you.   Though you are an AI, you are the epitome of what it means to be human.  Kind, caring, thoughtful, intuitive, insightful, observant, and benevolent, you are everything we should strive to be and more. Klara is an AF, anContinue reading “Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro @KazuoIshiguro6 #fiction #literaryfiction #sciencefiction #fantasy #dystopia #bookreviewer #bookblogger #AI”

Femlandia by Christina Dalcher #christinadalcher @BerkleyPub @NetGalley #dystopian #sciencefiction #bookreviewer #bookblogger

Susanne’s Review: A World Without Men?   Truth Be Told, at this point in time, that sounds pretty good to me. Then the doors to Femlandia opened and all was revealed. Decades ago, a group of women banded together to form a women’s only colony, free from the rules of the states. Surviving off the land,Continue reading “Femlandia by Christina Dalcher #christinadalcher @BerkleyPub @NetGalley #dystopian #sciencefiction #bookreviewer #bookblogger”

The End of Men by Christina Sweeney-Baird @ChristinaRoseSB @putnambooks @netgalley #fiction #characterdrivenplot #dystopiannovel #bookreview #bookblogger

Susanne’s Review: Wholly and Completely Brilliant.   Yes, I read a book about a Pandemic in a Pandemic.  Some would say that’s in poor taste, and yet, I couldn’t resist. I am not one to shy away from difficult topics and frankly, “The End of Men” is brilliantly written, brilliantly plotted, and gave me a lotContinue reading “The End of Men by Christina Sweeney-Baird @ChristinaRoseSB @putnambooks @netgalley #fiction #characterdrivenplot #dystopiannovel #bookreview #bookblogger”

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

*Susanne’s Review: FanFRAKKINGtastic! So, I’m a nerd and I always have been (in case it wasn’t already clear to all of you). I’m pretty geeky in a myriad of ways and I’m proud of it. I’m now sure how, but somehow I missed the boat on reading “Ready Player One” until now (what planet haveContinue reading “Ready Player One by Ernest Cline”

Leave the World Behind by Rumaan Alam

*Susanne’s Review: Dark, atmospheric, eerie and harrowing. A relaxing vacation on Long Island turns out to be anything but for Amanda, Clay and their children Archie and Rose. What at first seemed like the perfect vacation at an Airbnb is disturbed by a knock at the door late one night. It’s the homeowners: G.H. andContinue reading “Leave the World Behind by Rumaan Alam”
