Absolutely excellent I know The Handmaid's Tale gets press and praise but this is a far realistic and chilling misogynist future There's really so much meaty stuff and I'm so far from elouent that I'll just say read it and leave it at that

Women have no rights and are the property of men Aliens communicate with humans through the families of the linguist 'Lines' who have a monopoly on learning Alien languages The women of the Lines as restricted and patronized as any other women have developed a secret language for women only If the men find out they're doomed But the Aliens are watching I read this book years ago it was published in 1984 and I had an immediate visceral reaction yes she's right The male characters patronize humiliate and denigrate their women They treat them as not very bright semen receptacles Any woman who has sat in a meeting with men will recognize the interactions Elgin created an actual 'women's language' called Laadan which is still active today and I think like Tolkien the language came before the storyIt's interesting that current reviews on refer to the book as dated and several people say it's history and things are not like this today Well things may be better or we at least have the concept they should be better but this is not dated

This book had an amazing concept It was full of amazing ideas the creation of a secret language for an oppressed second class women But it lacked several things in my opinion that prevented it from living up to the proclamation feminist science fiction classicOne of those things was characterization The first one hundred or so pages in the book had no distinct character for the reader to engage with There are several plot points expounded in male points of view that readers are supposed to be disgusted by and are disgusted by; there is one storyline involving a woman lacking any real depth killing out of revenge; and then there is the mention of some other characters who may be important later That's itIn my opinion having no characters with any emotional depth for the reader to latch onto at the beginning of the story was a serious flaw It made the pace slow and frustrated my sense of who or what to believe in in this story Another problem I had with this book was the good guysbad guys dichotomy applied by the author It's simple All women are good even the one lady who systematically kills people all men are bad even the one guy who appeared to treat a female character like she was eual in intellect and status I personally don't like my contemporary fiction to be so blackwhite It is boring and it is not believable It narrows the reader's frame of mind and ability to objectively engage with the work And if done kind of poorly as it was here view spoilerkilling babies C'mon hide spoiler
