Sometime in the future, after devastating wars and fires, a lonely, windswept island in the north is populated solely by women. Among these women is a group of teenaged Trackers - expert equestrians and archers - whose job is to protect their shores from their enemy. The enemy, they've been told, is men.

When these girls come upon a partially buried home from the distant past, they are fascinated by the strange objects they find there: high-heeled shoes, teen magazines, make-up. What are they to make of these mysterious things, which introduce a world they have never known? And what does it mean for their strict society, in which friendship is forbidden and rules must be obeyed - at all costs?

Reminiscent of The Giver but with a feminist twist, Nomansland is a powerful, shocking story that will challenge young listeners' perspectives and provoke much discussion over the timely and controversial issues presented.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Carrie | 2/18/2014

    " Dystopian society made up of all-women. I liked the main character more than the book as a whole. "

    " Interesting plot, really well-written, and thought-provoking social commentary on the way women see themselves as well as the way society objectifies them. But the ending kind of fizzles and, unless there's a sequel in the works, seems largely unresolved (in terms of characterization; the plot does, I'll admit, "wrap up"). "

    " This dystopian novel explored really interesting gender(female)issues. Certainly not the "Hunger Games", but compelling ideas and my personal introduction into YA Dystopian novels. Guys would not like! "

    " Disappointing because I expected more action and this was more of a quite, contemplative novel, which can easily be appealing, I just approached Nomansland expecting adventure and physical confrontation to balance the psychological brutality. "
