#bookreview The Farm by Joanne Ramos published by Bloomsbury

Amazon:

Life is a lucrative business, as long as you play by the rules.

Ambitious businesswoman Mae Yu runs Golden Oaks – a luxury retreat transforming the fertility industry. There, women get the very best of everything: organic meals, fitness trainers, daily massages and big money. Provided they dedicate themselves to producing the perfect baby. For someone else. 

Jane is a young immigrant in search of a better future. Stuck living in a cramped dorm with her baby daughter and her shrewd aunt Ate, she sees an unmissable chance to change her life. But at what cost?

Welcome to The Farm.

My reading experience:

Firstly I would like to thank the author, publisher and Netgalley for my free ARC.

This is one of those 1984ish thought-provoking stories that makes you ponder how easily The Handmaid’s Tale could be a reality. It’s intelligent prose and subject matter provide the reader with a part thriller, part dystopian colonisation tale and ultimate a warning.

I highly recommend this book by Joanne Ramos.
