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 Carrie | 2/18/2014

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Andres | 1/26/2014

    " 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"). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maureen Mcmanus | 1/20/2014

    " 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! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 catherine james | 1/8/2014

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kalie | 12/24/2013

    " I hated the way this author wrote. It's slow and confusing, the characters are not well developed, wouldn't pick her to read again. I had to finish though, because I wanted to know how it would it. Torture. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gretchen | 12/22/2013

    " Interesting, but I wish the novel would have been longer, and followed the characters a little further in time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine | 6/23/2013

    " Different to what I expected but worth the read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melanie | 6/10/2013

    " This book had so much potential to be great. The story started out interesting and ended interesting but it lost me in the middle. Nothing really jumped out to make me want to read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 2/25/2013

    " Absolutely written for a younger audience, but I really enjoyed it! Although it is primarily about women/girls learning about the past & learning that not all men are evil, I think that even some guys would enjoy it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaye | 2/3/2013

    " Nomansland was an enjoyable listen, although it left a lot of territory unanswered. Some of the story was foggy from time to time, but to eat up miles in a car, it worked well enough. Keller is a young tracker who is pulled into intrigue, and discovers a world full of propaganda and anti-values. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Frenchhornbook | 1/13/2013

    " Classic perfect society book--I'm gonna guess that you have read a book like this, so you know what goes on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirsten | 9/29/2012

    " This was really good - compelling world-building, with a nice gradual reveal of the secrets underlying the society. I'd love to read more books set in this world. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erinthefunk | 7/21/2012

    " A cross between the Handmaid's Tale and the Giver, then injected with girl power. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 1/12/2012

    " I enjoyed this. It reminded me a lot of The Handmaid's Tale. Pretty quick listen. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patricia | 12/25/2011

    " A teenage girl raised to be a hunter in a land without men, discovers that things are not always as they seem, and that there are still men in the world beyond their community. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 8/28/2011

    " This book had an interesting concept, but I thought that there were a lot of details that author didn't explain well enough. I also really hope there's a sequel! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laynie | 7/1/2011

    " sounds interesting on the cover but is actually boring and very weird. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alis | 2/18/2011

    " A good idea, but I think I would have liked more explanation and closure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christen | 2/1/2011

    " So often I get angry with authors for needlessly stretching out a story to create a trilogy, but as far as this book was concerned, I would have loved to have had more. The premise was interesting, the characters were fascinating and I really wish I had more! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 1/10/2011

    " I was really excited to listen to this one. I thought it had great potential but it kinda fell short. The last few minutes did make up for it and I hope that there is a sequel. I can see Nomansland being a good basis or a series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mrs N | 12/31/2010

    " My last book of 2010. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nance | 12/22/2010

    " This dystopian future novel is an interesting look at society, power, and the struggle to survive. Good character development with well developed plot. Not as engrossing as Hunger Games. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirsten | 12/18/2010

    " This was really good - compelling world-building, with a nice gradual reveal of the secrets underlying the society. I'd love to read more books set in this world. "
