    FERTS

    This dystopian future world is one of subjugation for women. Beth 201 is having visions and knows something isn't right with the world. A good story but the end leaves a lot of questions.

    FERTS Book 1

    This book was disturbing on a couple of levels. Foremost, I am aware that many men would consider this society Utopia, a tribute to the author's understanding of a sick male psyche. The other aspect that upset me, was the ease that the male population adopted this lifestyle. This novel forced me to constantly check my own values and will certainly inspif

    Fun read, it made me buy the trilogy! Cliffhanger ending that will allow you to stop if you didn't fancy it!

    Women are sex slaves

    Basically women are either sex slaves, gladeators or a science experiment depending on looks or strength, none live over age 25 because some nut job convinced the rest of the men that that's all women are good for. Terrible book!!

    Weak plotting and poor characterisation

    I have the impression that Grace Hudson was trying to write a more overtly post-apocalyptic take on The Handmaids Tale, but FERTS doesn't come anywhere close to achieng this. A large part of the problem, fo me, is that Hudson is so explicit about her worldbuilding, to the point that what narrative there is frequently halted so that the author can inflict yet another gratuitous infodump on the poor reader. Not only is this approach jarring, but it also has the unfortunate effect of highlighing the extent to which the world, as depicted, doesn't quite hang together, making it increasingly difficult to believe in. This isn't helped by the extent to which the plot jumps from character to character. For much of the story, there is no real sense of where things are going, or which characters are going to prove to be important. This makes it very difficult to connect with any of the characters, a problem whic badly reduces the impact the book is trying to achieve. Ultimately, FERTS tries to be too many things and falls flat in the process.
