While the story is indeed hilarious, Mr Donnelly certainly brings up many issues as food for thought - including the fighting in other countries across the globe, other cultures and their treatment of women, etc. The story is fast paced. The main character is well developed, and we see the world through his eyes. Nick grows with the story. He might seem like a bit of a chauvinist, but he eventually evolves when trying to save Fatima...
One great aspect of this story is that the author doesn't make all women bad or all men good - he gives us the variety that we see in life. It's hard to tell you why I enjoyed the story without giving too much away because it ruins the enjoyment of the story for you.
I enjoyed this even though we are seeing things through Nick's perspective because he is so honest. He makes mistakes, and later he regrets what he has done. The premise was well written so as not to be offensive (in my opinion), and it was written in such a way as to carry us through Nick's emotions. We feel for Nick in his efforts to find true love in a society that seems to have lost this idea.
I look forward to reading more of George Donnelly's work in the near future!
Received for an honest review.
Imagining a world run my ultra Feminist women were every action and law was based not on logic, but feelings was terrifying. The men were at their mercy with little to no say in their lives. Nick faced being placed in a sexcamp if the woman he was assigned to was displeased leaving him with no other options. His idea of finding a woman to spend his life with was over until h was invited to an African nation to choose a bride, but even that option had its own problems.
This was a fascinating look into an alternative world that was so different form our own. The only issue I had with the story was it began with a bang leaving the reader to figure out what was happening on their own. A short explanation about how the society was run and the place that men and women stood would have helped set the scene better for the story.
After being hog tired with threats and bombs exploding , they both decided running was the better option . Landing back in the states under arrest and wanting Nicks personal body part on a platter . Plus taking his true love !!
You find find this book very amusing , well written and keeps a wonderful pace . Dialog is smooth and keeps you absorbed to the very end . It was a delight to read . Am sure I will be reading his other books as well . George Donnelly will thrill your reading with light hearted amusement & how wonderfully he scribes the story .
The writer has talent and if he keeps at it, I'm sure he has potential to develop into a very good writer indeed.Recommended for readers who like this
kind of futuristic dystopian stories.
The "jumping" from one passage to other little bothers me because I lose plot line sometime but it was very interesting and meanigfull reading so I narrowed my eye:-)
