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.
