Book Description

1 Aug 2013
Ann Veronica describes the rebellion of Ann Veronica Stanleyagainst her middle-class father's stern patriarchal rule. Set in Edwardian London, Ann Veronica offers vignettes of the Women's suffrage movement in Great Britain. "The art of ignoring is one of the accomplishments of every well-bred girl, so carefully instilled that at last she can even ignore her own thoughts and her own knowledge."

5.0 out of 5 stars How amazing H. G 14 July 2014

How amazing H.G. Wells was!
Not only was he an excellent science fiction author, but he wrote a lovely story about an extremely frustrated , repressed woman living in the frustrating and repressive Victorian Era!
The ending surprised and delighted me very much!
3.0 out of 5 stars "Why can't they be like we were perfect in every way?" 29 Aug 2009

"What's the matter with kids today?" Lyrics from "Bye Bye Birdie"

Ann Veronica "Vee" asks the question "why can't a woman be like a man" and sets out to find out why. She discovers all sorts of men, some stuffy and some devious. She may one day stumble over the perfect man. She tries to be independent and is thwarted at every turn; that is until she realizes there are better things to do than just compete.

We get to grow with Vee and go through several long dissertations, Ayn Rand style, over politics freedom, love, equality, and whatnot. All the talk loses its way and with dumb luck returns to the story. We are treated to a travelogue and scratch ourselves with a long talk about the prison dingies. Just as it, starts to get interest the story stops dead in the middle of a thought.

The story is ok and some of the subjects brought up are still relevant today. However, if you look a little closer the story as with much fiction is just a venue to express H.G's concepts of free love.
