Daughters of the North

by: Sarah Hall

Publisher: Harper (2007)


Dark, exciting, and utterly believable, this dystopian novel grabbed me from the get-go. Strong character definition and interactions paint a very human picture of life under a patriarchal fascism. Highly recommended if you like 1984, Handmaid's Tale, Oryx and Crake, We, etc...
