    Missed potential

    When Jane is down on her luck she is introduced to the world of surrogate farming – wellness centres that reward surrogates for carrying wealthy babies – monitoring them every step of the way. But is The Farm too good to be true? From the blurb I was intrigued by the premise of The Farm and thought it sounded mysterious and full of underlying menace which made me request the book to read. To that end I wasn’t disappointed; the underlying unease that runs through this book is masterful – it keeps its cards close to its chest and ramps up the tension and suspense the more you get to learn about the main characters – either the surrogates or the people running The Farm. Unfortunately for me that was where it stopped – I was expecting a big twist or an evil side of the project to fully come to fruition and unfortunately it just seemed to build all that tension just to fizzle out. I found the ending to be so disappointing – like the author was trying too hard to wrap up all the loose ends and make a happy ending. I liked that the story constantly changed perspectives which really showed the class and wealth differences in the characters. I liked some of the political messages the book was trying to portray but I came away from it feeling like it wasted its potential by not giving us a hard hitting ending that would have left you thinking about the topic and the issues it brought up further. Overall The Farm is an interesting read – it just could have gone further with a better ending to produce a suspenseful and well-paced read. Thank you to NetGalley and Bloomsbury Publishing Plc for the chance to read the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Beautiful story

    Reading it with awe and emotion before each chapter, made it a page turner and, later, toward end, appreciating more and more the words, the intricacies and the narrator voice.

    Life isn't fair

    I enjoyed this novel, I just was expecting a different ending as it was billed as a Handmaid's Tale type of story but actually it showed something perhaps closer to real life - that life isn't fair and those who are disadvantaged find a way to forge a meaningful life despite exploitation.
