Product description

About the Author

Charlotte Perkins Gilman (July 3, 1860 – August 17, 1935) was a prominent American sociologist, novelist, writer of short stories, poetry, and nonfiction, and a lecturer for social reform. She was a utopian feminist during a time when her accomplishments were exceptional for women, and she served as a role model for future generations of feminists because of her unorthodox concepts and lifestyle. Her best remembered work today is her semi-autobiographical short story The Yellow Wallpaper which she wrote after a severe bout of postpartum psychosis.

Unlike More's "Utopia" and Bellamy's "Looking Backward", which are socioeconomic treatises dressed up as fiction, Gilman's vision of a utopian society at least tells a story. It has both a plot and characters of interest. For those thinking of reading this book it will be necessary to suspend your disbelief (not necessarily a bad thing), and not mind being told that a world might be much better off being run by women (very probably a good thing!) I did not find this a great read but it kept me interested enough to write this review.

I remember reading this book many years ago and was not disappointed by it. Lots of food for thought and a good pace to the story.

I unashamedly love this book and recommend it to high-school students and beyond. The first time I read it it was quite an eye-opener for me and I was only just beginning to read various utopian novels; this remains a favourite even though I have now read many more alongside the huge amount of dystopian novels falling off the book shelves. I was intrigued how the author was able to create a believable storyline for procreation with an women only society...it worked. Yes there is a certain amount of stereotyping, yes it's a bit far-fetched but I like the way she keeps the story flowing and how the three men discover a lot about themselves and each other.

The best book I have ever read. It tells of a world I predict will come to pass: a world of only women. I have read and re-read it. Wonderful. All women should read this book. Buy a copy for yourself, and one for your daughter.
