Book Review: The Gate to Womens’ Country by Sherri S. Tepper

104344I first read this book in my teens, and remember thinking it was wonderful. I’ve decided to re-read it again (twenty-something years later) to see what I make of it now. Review to follow.

Update: I’ve just finished this re-read and, once more, I am blown away. There’s so much to praise about this book – the story, the writing, the characters, the themes of nature vs. nurture, femininity vs. masculinity etc – but it’s the irony that’s sticking with me at the moment: In an attempt to breed out violence and the (supposed) male tendency to wage war, the (morally corrupt?) women end up sending their men to war.

It’s the kind of book that fills my head with questions and leaves me pondering the answers.

5/5 – It was amazing!
