I am hovering between a pick and a so-so for this one... it had a very slow beginning and that got just weird enough to keep reading to find out what was going to happen and then it all kind of fell apart for me at the end...

laurenslibrary I've had this one my TBR for awhile, but I've recently been seeing a lot of "meh" reviews for it. ? 2w

I‘m going to DNF this one at 28%. I‘m not impressed with the character development and I‘ve already made up my mind about the titular farm. There‘s no reason for me to keep reading. On to the next book!

It's a thinker as THE FARM dives into subjects of race, privelage, and reproductive rights, but there isn't much of a resolution. Jane is a multi-dimensional character, but I wish we got more of that character development for the other perspectives.

It kept me entertained, and I finished it within a day.

3.5 stars

I wanted more. I love the premise but the execution was lacking for me. Nearly abandoned but I'm glad I didn't. It doesn't necessarily get better, but there is a complete plot that was nice to see through until the end.
Very into class, race, feminism and privilege...I felt slapped in the face with it; as a reader I felt told and not shown which is never fun.

kyraleseberg This is exactly how I felt! So much potential, delivery seriously lacking. 1mo

Pick with reservations! I thought this was going to be a great dystopia, but then it didn‘t go there. Instead it normalizes the farm—which is for pregnant surrogates to live at and be monitored, see the cover artwork. So, yeah, actually not a dystopia but I found it somewhat creepy. I wonder if such a place exists today? Maybe it‘s likely.

marleed I just did not like the character development in this one. I think a film adaptation could actually be better than the book. 2mo

The book follows Jane, single mom, immigrant to America, and her struggle to provide for her family and live the American Dream. The characters of the book are incredible. They‘re well written and step out of the pages and seem real. The story and their struggles are also real. Their strength, through all the drama of the book, is empowering. Overall, The Farm was one of my most anticipated reads this year and did not disappoint.

Overall, I wasn't a big fan. The concept was interesting, the writing intriguing, but the characters fell flat. The author addresses many social issues in this book, and I appreciate that. In the end though, if I don't feel connected to the characters I get bored.

No, not that kind of farm, although there are alpacas. Ramos offers an interesting portrayal of privilege (racial, economic, educational) within a system that sees women and women's bodies as commodities. I quite enjoyed this book even though it pissed me off. Especially Mae. It brought back the objectification and powerlessness I felt while pregnant, even as it highlighted just how relatively not-objectified and not-powerless I was.

marleed Great pic. I was a so-so on this one. I really liked the story but found the characters I engaging. Is it weird then that I want this adapted to screen? I just think with a little tweaking there‘d id like these women. 3mo
ImperfectCJ @marleed I could see this being really effective as a film. There's a lot a filmmaker could do with atmosphere/mood, I think. I connected fairly well to the main characters, I think. But at least two fell off the map, which I always find annoying, and some (Becca, Geri, Ethan) I kept mixing up or forgetting about. 3mo

A high end surrogacy home is the backdrop for an examination of how class/race/privilege play out among the pregnant hosts with each other and the wealthy clients paying for surrogates. I didn‘t feel as emotionally invested in any of the characters as I expected and felt they were used more as a way to explore the themes of exploitation and choice. Would make a good book club choice. Lots to discuss.

Rachel.Rencher I just now realized, after reading your blurb, that the cover has silhouettes of baby bumps. Never got that until now. 😂🤦‍♀️ 4mo
marleed I was a so-so on this as well because I just wasn‘t engaged in the characters. I keep thinking if it is adapted to screen writers would take care of that and it would very interesting. 4mo

I loved this! I would recommend checking your expectations at the door; this isn‘t a dystopian novel. It‘s more Little Fires Everywhere than The Handmaid‘s Tale. But I found it fascinating! Interesting characters, loads of ethical issues raised (inequality, women‘s rights, race) but it never felt preachy! I was always just dying to know what happened next! 😲 👍

Best book I‘ve read so far. Tackles many issues and is written so well that you feel like you are watching a film, super visual. Discusses class, discusses what money can pay for, discusses rights to your own body. I love the multitude of perspectives and the ending made me tear up- perfect, as perfect as it could be considering the circumstances! Amazing writer, can‘t wait to see what Joanne does next.

I really enjoyed this look at the choices women of different backgrounds make; this novel follows a few women as they choose to be a paid "host" for wealthy families to have a baby.

It sounded like it would be more dystopian but it's definitely in the women's fiction category. There are a few heart pounding moments of drama at the end but overall it is focused on the inner lives of different women as they have other people's babies.

It was really strange to read this while breastfeeding a newborn!
This was a solid pick for me. I was expecting it to be solely about the commodification of pregnancy, but it asked a lot of good questions about how to act on privilege and how the best intentions can be really blind. I also liked that there weren‘t any answers (easy or otherwise) about how to live in the world with such income disparity.

I like the concept of this book - privilege and use of immigrants and the poor to fill in for aspects of life the privileged don‘t want to deal with. But somehow the story never really hooked me. Maybe it was a bit too focused on issues not relevant to the story or trying too hard to be political. It was ok, but just didn‘t wow me. 3⭐️

A picture in the park from months ago of a book I'd had a bit more hope for. It gets so many Handsmaid's comparisons, but never really packed that suspenseful punch for me and left too much unanswered. Still, I would like to thank #NetGalley for the free copy in exchange for an honest review.

People are a$$holes. Noblesse oblige exists and is awesome. There‘s no such thing as a free lunch if you‘re poor or an immigrant. Rich people always get what they want, so why fight it.

I think these were the points of the book, but I‘m really not sure. Very poorly executed idea. Avoid!!

I bailed on the ebook because I thought I MIGHT enjoy it more on audio. I‘m a couple of narrator swaps past where I bailed, but I feel like this book is a lot of unrealized potential. The idea is solid, but there‘s something missing in the execution. Thoughts?? 🤔

Hestapleton That is EXACTLY how I felt out. You aren‘t missing anything if you bail. 5mo
Megabooks @Hestapleton Still undecided on the bail. I mean, the idea is really interesting to me, but the execution is just wrong. I can‘t even put my finger on why. The whole is less than the sum of its parts. 5mo

Megabooks @Hestapleton I bailed on FHotLG during the BOTM challenge, but I‘ve thought about going back to it. Maybe pregnancy just doesn‘t interest me. I am #childfreebychoice 😉 5mo
OnlyYoo I don‘t think the story was anything super spectacular but it did leave me with some interesting thoughts. I never really thought about how easy is it to make a woman‘s body a commodity and the sort of loss of autonomy that comes with it. Specifically where they forced that one catholic girl to have an abortion even though it was against her religion because the client no longer wanted the baby. 5mo
Megabooks @OnlyYoo I had gotten to the part where they found the mosaic trisomy, but not the abortion. That makes me want to listen on. In part that I listened to this morning, they talked about this being an extension of wet nurses, which in a way, it is, but so, so much more invasive. That‘s why I found the idea so interesting. 🤔🤷🏻‍♀️ 5mo

This was a book I was excited to read, and it did not let me down one bit. From the first page, I got swept away in the world Joanne Ramos created I almost forgot I was in the real world. This will definitely make you think and question how surrogacy impacts not only the future parents, but the woman who is carrying their child. Seriously, READ THIS BOOK!!!!!!!

Joanne Ramos has quite a literary career ahead of her if The Farm is what she brings to the table with her debut novel. Golden Oaks is a place the extravagantly wealthy go to incubate their babies in Hosts, who are every color, background, ethnicity, and all in desperate need of money.

I‘ve been on a real audiobook kick lately! Unfortunately this one was only okay. It was interesting seeing the characters morally try to grapple with their various parts in this odd (and pretty horrible) place where these (mostly) underprivileged women have babies for super rich people, all for a hopefully better future for their own families. That being said I didn‘t really like any of the characters or the ending. 🌟🌟🌟

This book didn't live up to the promise it had in my head - I wish it had been a little sharper. While I acknowledge that there aren't any known surrogate residential centers, would anyone be surprised to hear that one is operating right now in secret? I enjoyed hearing Jane and Reagan's stories, but felt like the author did them both a little dirty in the end.

The_Real_Nani Same. It seemed to strive for depth but missed the mark. 6mo
cathipink @The_Real_Nani I think the 'set in the not-so-distant future' classification had me primed for a more dystopian take? The one part that did land for me was Mae's observance of how catering to rich people will never be automated, and her falling into that same audience as well - nevermind that the employees are treated like machines. 6mo
FeministBookClub I chatted with the author about the premise on our podcast. I think you‘d be interested in her perspective! 6mo
The_Real_Nani @cathipink It was being compared to The Handmaids Tale. Maybe in context but in writing quality? Nope. 6mo

There are some really interesting thoughts about reproductive rights, the commodification of pregnancy and the exploitation of minorities here...and yet it didn't grip me. Each of the characters, Jane, Mae and Reagan, were interesting in their way but somehow not quite as fleshed out as I wanted. The abrupt end to the flow of the story, followed by the epilogue jarred and felt like an anti-climax. Deliberate, I think, but not quite effective

“dystopian/sci-fi” in my opinion, is not truly an accurate genre for this read. The premise of this book is actually not so far fetched from reality. In fact, it seems downright probable and likely to be the norm. As a pregnant woman and mom of a two year old, a lot of the themes tugged at my heartstrings and played on my motherly emotions. It wasn‘t as shocking or bizarre as I thought it would be but it is worth the read!

Officially 31 weeks pregnant and doing some road trip reading. I‘ve got 50 pages left of The Farm by Joanne Ramos. Some parts have definitely resonated with me because I‘m a mother myself, AND I‘m currently carrying a child. Couldn‘t have picked this book up at a more perfect time in my life probably. Can‘t wait to see how it ends because believe me, the stakes are high right about now. 😬
