This thread is now open for discussion. No spoilers on this thread, please.

Annette Jordan | 50 comments I read this for another book club in January, and found it to be one of the most interesting and frightening books I have ever read, even now almost 11 months later I still find myself thinking about it.

I will get to it at some point; not sure when...

Just started reading this.

Wendy Been reading this a while, I had to take a break and read something else but I'm back with it now. Can't say that I'm enjoying it but I can't give up on it, finding it really compelling. I agree with Annette, it's quite frightening and I'm only just over half way through.

I loved this. I gave it 4 stars but I think I need to upgrade it to 5. Very relevant for today.

Olly L-J (olly_lj) | 3 comments Just finished this, absolutely loved it. 5 stars for me! Eerily similar to middle-eastern societies in my opinion - the patriarchal society, rules on women's clothing etc.
Possibly the best dystopian novel i've read ... better even than 1984

Shay (shaylyn318) | 14 comments I read this awhile back. Very enjoyable.
