Y is one of those novels that has a great premise but suffers through its execution. Unlike similar novels that are redeemed through the writing or its character development, Y has none of those. It is unfortunate because the plot is interesting, and Ms. Rozanski's writing shows promise.

The problem centers around the fact that Y never settles into one particular genre and one particular main topic. It tries too hard to be a dystopian, political, sociological, feminist, morality tale cum science
Jen  (In the Closet With a Bibliophile)
As you can see from the summary above, this is a science fiction novel of epic proportion. Because seriously, what could be more epic than the major loss of the male species. Yes, yes, I may complain about Hubby, but it would be terribly sad if they died out. I mean, so much less to stare at *wink wink*

When I started this book, I really had no idea what to expect. I mean, yeah, I knew the background of the story, but I had never read anything by Bonnie Rozanski. And after the prologue, I was eve

I received “Y”, by Bonnie Rozanski, as a review copy submitted to “Red Adept Reviews” by the author.

Overall: 3 1/4 Stars

This book is Mad Men meets Outbreak.

Plot/Storyline: 4 Stars

Though this may appear to be a futuristic disaster novel, it’s actually a story about the spectrum of humanity. It’s not a destination book; it’s a journey book. Taking place over thirty years, the story reveals the effects of the decline of the male population on two generations. The author di

"Y" is an intriguing thriller that will grasp the reader from the beginning until the very end, leaving questions swirling in their minds.

I was so excited and anxious to read "Y". I have developed a true love for "possible end-of-the-world epidemic" stories and this sounded right up my alley. I was not disappointed. "Y" explores the possibility of what would happen in a world dominated my females and the desperation and extremes people would go to to try to outwit Mother Nature. This is a story

The premise of this book was good one and could have been very interesting but sadly it was not to be. The characters are so typical and boring it ridiculous. You have the brainy female Dr who doesn't get taken seriously because "gasp" she's only a female. You have the blind wife who is married to a women hater, she becomes successful and of course doesn't realize that he's to abusing her daughter. The man who cheats on everyone and is so stereotypical its funny. and so on.
There really is no ch

My thoughts: This is far fetched and extreme. I am usually all about the end of the world types, but this one was too much for me and it dealt mainly with humanity. I found it hard to believe and concentrate on. I wanted to for the author be so in love with it, but I just couldn't bring my self to that point. Are woman that much in charge that you believe you could give them dominance over everyone. I feel like it could be anyone's game not just women.

This book had a very interesting premise, the world being overpopulated with females. I enjoyed the book, who knows what might happen in this case?
