Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
When the product description compared this to The Giver I started frothing at the mouth, because the last 25 pages of the Giver were so worth the read that I wanted more. Thus I went into this read with high expectations.

Main gist is an isolated island has survived the apocalypse. The survivors on the island are only female and have developed a society in which they survive partially by ensuring they don't get corrupted by pleasure and/or men. Men are the enemy. Pleasures require confession and repentance.

1) It's only similar the The Giver in that this story revolves around a dystopian society

2) The beginning of the book pulled me in as every few paragraphs a new part of the world was revealed. It truly felt like a new layer was pulled back every page or two and through that revelation I could easily imagine what was described. Not only could I imagine it, I could see how it may have come about.

3) The characters were interesting and I cared what happened not only Keller (main protagonist), but also Liang. What makes Keller an attractive character is she's not 100% follower but neither is she a defiant leader. She's just trying to find her place. While performing her duties with submissiveness she also holds onto secrets and thus is passively aggressive in her rebelliousness.

4) To that point I still don't accept the "male" versions of the female names. But then again I'm a guy and maybe something didn't translate well to me

5) There was good suspense leading up to Keller off to rescue Liang. But the end chase didn't have the "umph" for me which I hoped for and the story was setup for.

6) The end was tragic but happy at the same time. It was the most appropriate ending because it leaves one wondering what about Keller?

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Nomansland, written by Lesley Hauge, is a pretty good story about a group of Amazon-type women who live in a postapocaliptic world. Their world is tightly governed by rules and restrictions. Girls are strictly raised with specific tasks in mind. There are the Housekeepers, Librarians, Cooks, Mothers, etc.

The story focuses on Keller, who's function in this society is to be a tracker, trains alongside other teenagers to defend the island where they live from their enemy: man. Upon discovering things from the previous civilization, the girl's lives change as they start to question the rules and structure they live by.

As many have mentioned, this book is similar to Lois Lowry's book The Giver. But, I think this book is more reminiscent of Lowry's Gathering Blue, the second one in the 'series' and Ayn Rand's Anthem in its largely dystopian premise. Like Anthem, it explores a socialistic society and explores the weakness of its collective thinking.

Although a young adult book, it explores rather interesting and deep subjects. Whether intended or not, this book espouses the idea of the anti-collective minded society through its narrative. It shows all of its weaknesses and none of its attributes of the type of society presented in the book. The rules are irrational and the whole does not tolerate any possible individuality or advancement past its approval. Like I said, it explores many subjects.

The books is very slow at first and mostly Keller's reflective point of view.

I had my doubts about this book when I requested it. Now I am thrilled to have read it! This is an excellent fast paced read. The author does a fantastic job capturing the spirit and personalities of the teenage girls. It seems that no matter how one is raised, teenagers will be teenagers. Getting into trouble, worry about fitting in, wanting to be good, wanting to rebel. The constant war between adult, child and tons of crazy hormones that equals Teen. Never want to do that again!
Without ruining the book, the basic premise is it is the future. It seems that there was a nuclear war & there is a group of females only living on an island. There is a government set up and rules. The reader gets to see both the good and bad of this system. It kind of made me think of 'Animal Farm' in some ways. Note: this is not about animals dressing in clothes, I'm talking about the political part. Now this book isn't about politics, but politics cannot be escaped because they are the governing rules that these teens must live by. These girls discover fascinating & mostly useless items from the past. This discovery leads to eye opening, fear, and plenty of questions. Their lives are hard and harsh. They know nothing but hunger, rules, and hard work. These items from the past seem to show the exact opposite life of their own. They don't know what to think of this. Part of them is disgusted, the other revels in it & wants to experience this other way of life lived before them.
My biggest peeve (not really a peeve at all) is the story ended too soon for me. I wanted to continue reading about the main characters journey into adulthood. Ah well, the author had to end it somewhere.
This is an absolutely fabulous read for adult and teen alike. I hope you read it & get as much pleasure from the story as I did!
