Book Review

If anyone has any time for reading over the holiday, I can thoroughly recommend
Gate to Women’s Country or, more, recently Beauty.

My Ladies of Amazonia grace us with their presence :

The Gate To Women’s Country

Synopsis:
“Classic fantasy from the amazing Sheri S. Tepper. Women rule in Women's Country. Women live apart from men, sheltering the remains of civilization They have cut themselves off with walls and by ordinance from marauding males.”

Customer Review:

“I READ THIS BOOK THE FIRST TIME SEVERAL YEARS AGO, I WAS AMAZED, SHE NOT ONLY HAD THE RIGHT QUESTIONS, SHE EVEN HAD SOME OF THE ANSWERS! FOR A PURELY GOOD READ, GET IT. FOR A MOMENT A CLARITY, GET IT. IT'S NOT A DIATRIBE AGAINST MEN, IT'S AN EXPLORATION OF THE POSSIBLITIES OFFERED BY OUR PRESENT SOCIAL SYSTEMS. IT WOULD MAKE A GREAT FILM, AS WOULD ALL HER BOOKS”
Cate toward From STANFORD-LE-HOPE, ENGLAND

Beauty

Review:

“Beauty is the half mortal, half fairy daughter of a 14th century English duke. A fairy curse puts the entire household into an extended sleep, but Beauty escapes using a magic cloak. Outside the castle, she is captured by a film crew from the 21st century who have come to film the end of magic. Beauty lives for a while in the overpopulated, ugly 21st century where nature has been completely destroyed by humans and magic no longer works. She escapes, and her subsequent adventures take her to imaginary countries, the land of Faery, the late 20th century….” Elizabeth Sourbut
