Mother to rescue, Harvey. A conservative gal in an increasingly radically liberal world. I just want to be left alone and read books.

I can't believe how many negative reviews there are for this. I thought it was fascinating. Yes, the plot is a bit contrived and illogical, but so are pretty much all the dystopian future America novels/stories regarding women. It ended on a positive note, which I haven't seen before in the others. Perhaps that's why it was rated so low?
I listened to it on audio and the narrator did an amazing job. Perhaps that's the route to take in this story.

Itchyfeetreader I was captivated by this - my only negativity was turning something that was so horrific and cerebral into a bit of an action film type ending. (I did almost kiss my mums 70th trying to finish!) 3w
ThalassaLuna I'm going to be reading this one soon. Good to know I have something to look forward to! 3w

Judge Jeanine makes a fair argument against the obvious liberal bias in Congress and news and social media, but it reads as if it was written in a hurry over a week. But then again, that is how the Judge speaks in general.
I‘m glad to see someone has the gall to speak up about the absurdity in Congress.
Lack of compromise amongst both parties puts politics before the people.

I‘ve been bad at updating. I was preparing for my trip to the Grand Canyon.
It was wonderful. I hiked the Bright Angel Trail. The most mentally and physically challenging thing I‘ve ever done.

Other than Gentry, I found all the characters bland or annoying.

I found the writing poor compared to Bryn's other novels.

Another wonderful adventure! Highly researched and magically fits in with Jamie and Claire‘s story. I‘m looking forward to the continuation of Brianna and Roger as well.

This book was an adventure! As the books progress, Diana's writing improves.

Season 3 of the show was brilliant, but the book, of course, is far more detailed.

I'm completely invested in these characters now. The second book, by far, has been the hardest to get through but if you can complete that challenge I have a feeling the rest of the books will be amazing.

3 down. 5 to go!

suvata I‘m with you! I‘ve read the first four. 3mo

While this book was slower paced than the first, it was still an enjoyable adventure.

I admit though I enjoyed the pacing of the second season of the show better than the book.

Now...on towards Voyager.

This one is a bit slower paced than the first novel, but I‘m still enjoying it. Perhaps it gets faster as Claire and Jamie get deeper in their goal?

O M G!!!
This book was amazing. The only thing I regret is not having read it sooner.

OnlyYoo Yay welcome to the club! I just finished her last book and it made me cry it was so beautiful ❤️ 3mo
swishandflick One of my all-time favorite series! 3mo
Feenbraut @OnlyYoo what is the title of her last book if I may ask? 3mo
OnlyYoo @Feenbraut Written in my own heart‘s blood. She‘s currently in the process of writing another one (Tell the bees I‘ve gone or something like that)! 3mo
Feenbraut Oh good. Then I am up to date 👍🏻 cant wait for the next one. I am a bit scared tho as Claire and Jamie grow older. What if the unspeakable happens and one of them dies? 😩 3mo

Feenbraut Jamie is my one and only. I have a mental happy place. And in that happy place he is my neighbour and I imagine whatching him from my window training his horses (and doing other things that are unmentionable). I am sure you can relate to my feelings. 😬 3mo

This book is clearly intended for those that sit on the far-left of the political spectrum. I just couldn‘t. I know it‘s speculative fiction, but it was too extreme for me. There was zero feeling of hope after this read.

TheAromaofBooks It's always frustrating when you have to wade through pages of why hamburger-eating conservatives destroyed the world as we know it :-p 3mo
lauren.lerner Speculative fiction is inherently progressive, that‘s the purpose of the genre: to explore how we progress past where we are now or where we might be in the near future. Sounds like this isn‘t the genre for you, though it‘s a shame you hated every story in the book because there are some truly lovely gems in it. 3w

Birdsong28 It's alright I am only on the Fourth book and doing it on audiobook as well best way in my opinion. Just a tip the last half an hour of Voyager is the first chapter of Drums of Autumn. Seen all the series tho, I watch before I listen as it helps me picture the scenes. 3mo

The narrative of this book is written almost like it is intended to be a letter to someone. The random “Hey Angela” moments throw me off, but I‘ll continue. It so far is well written.

Just came back from book club discussing this month‘s pick. I wouldn‘t have on my own picked this up but I found it a quick, lighthearted read. My only major gripe was that I found Prudence a bit TOO idealistic.
