    One thought on “Escape From Enlightenment: Marley's Journey”

    1. Regardless of however many stars I end up giving this book, the actual rating is "It's complicated". I read this book not because it looked like something I would love but out of curiosity around how it would approach the central premise of the world. Because of that, I don't know that it's fair to use my rating to judge how anyone else reading it would feel. That complicated situation also means I have to write an actual detailed review even though I don't really want to.So here you go.I want t [...]

    2. It's difficult for me to properly express why I didn't like the book. I guess it mainly has to do with my difficulty to really get into the philosophy behind the world created. I feel strongly about feminism and its importance in today's society but this is not where I see is heading. I have no problem with science fiction or dystopian worlds in the 23rd century but I think what's missing here is the humanism or the fight for it. So this is a very subjective criticism.I also found the change bet [...]

    3. “Oh, if women ruled the world”, begins the popular muse, often followed by either an idealistic conclusion or a trite triviality involving cats or chocolate. Most take to heart that such a society would be epitome of compassion and benevolence. Not Tessa Rose…Tessa brings us into a unique future setting, for a tale invoking this very theme, and does an outstanding job of it for a first-time novelist. She paints an idyllic, sparkling utopia, of moving sidewalks and magnetic roads, enhanced [...]

    4. A tale of fiction with a very real message.That message is: be careful what you believe. Question what you've been taught - especially if it doesn't resonate with the intelligence that lives within you.Humans seem to lack understanding of how group thought works. How popular it is. How engineered it is - and how dangerous it can be.Give an idea enough time to marinate through generations and what you have is an entire movement. One that may not be based in truth. One that could create a lot of h [...]

    5. I loved reading this dystopian novel on a post-World War III society ruled by feminist lesbians, where boys are raised in camps to become either eunuch servants or breeding slaves. As a result of indoctrination and controlled breeding, most humans are now homosexuals. However, nature does not allow itself to be altered easily. A lot of heterosexuals remain hidden under the radar and an underground railroad helps political dissidents and male slaves escape to the "island", where both gay and stra [...]

    6. Amazingly good for a first book. Turns conventional thinking about sexual, conceptual and religious/sexual norms on its head. Sometimes I think this book is Sci Fi, sometimes a dystopian story, and sometimes a wonderfully well done satire.Some readers may be turned off as this book explores a society where gay and lesbian behavior is the norm, and men are sequestered to be used as breeders. I encourage the reader to stay with this book. Guaranteed to encourage thinking. Way out of the box. Great [...]
