    An interesting dystopian novel based around an idea of everybody being equal, nobody looking above their station and attempting to eradicate envy or Bad E Parts of the eradication is by formalising standards of peoples faces, mainly women and follows the main character through this world At times brutal and incredibly well written, the world is claustrophobic and creepy It was enjoyable to read although seemed to lack something that I can t put my finger on Certainly one for fans of dystopian fi [...]

    I recently bought a copy of this off a Cambridge street vendor, and only partially because the title sounds a bit skeezy.The story is about Jael 97, a woman whose alpha ranked looks have caused enough envy among her peers to make her consider having an artificial beta face fitted Her post World War III society is governed by a mysterious dictator, whose seemingly arbitrary commands seem intended to keep everyone equal in mediocrity When one of the dictator s decisions affects Jael in an unexpect [...]

    3.5 stars Gave this book a go as I do love a good dystopian One thing I will say about it is that L.P Hartley s writing is both eloquent and effective This book definitely has the perfect balance of description and plot for me personally.The book is a dystopian where the third world war has left only 20 million people on the planet These people lived underground for many years and were ruled by a cruel regime, which used threats and torture to maintain order But this doesn t last long, and the e [...]

    4 starsWhen I first found the book on the bookshelf, it didn t look appealing Boy was I wrong Hartley spun the story beautifully, with his beautiful, clear usage of the English language It s not much a romance novel, but about the society the story was set in I have always enjoyed descriptive and detailed paragraphs This book was the epitome of it Despite not having much plot, I still thoroughly enjoyed the story that circled around Jael s character development, changes in mindset as she transi [...]


    Andrew

    Time has not served this novel well It is of an essay on the period it was written than a true post apocalptic novel, and it reads poorly Interesting insights are built up and then flounder, or are put aside for no particular reason The disjointed plot is bogged down by statements and questions which advance nothing other than speculation Jael the main character undergoes a curious personal ignominy which never really feels relevant to the faceless multitudes In fact, poor characterisation sink [...]


    Gustl

    L impressione dopo aver letto questo romanzo di Hartley, di genere distopico quella che lo scrittore abbia messo come si suol dire tanta carne al fuoco , ma non l abbia cotta tutta sviluppando male alcune questioni di peso all interno della narrazione, come la Resistenza direi in modo un p frettoloso L ambientazione quella tipica dell Inghilterra post nucleare, in cui si creato un regime socialisteggiante, uguaglianza e monotonia come massima rappresentazione della societ sicura e felice l indiv [...]

    2.5 stars Read 16 Dec 2015 view spoiler This book requires patience a lot of patience There were many boring passages and chapters, and one cannot simply read this book in one seating because it really can get boring But you need patience and determination to get to the end of the book Trust me, get to the end I liked the ending a lot view spoiler it really wrapped up everything very nicely Although some may argue that it was open ended I liked that the novel discusses the what s next after a di [...]

    Another take on a dystopian post apocalyptic novel reminiscent of H.G Wells, Aldous Huxley and George Orwell There are some thought provoking ideas here about a society where individuality is seen as the major evil and is to be eradicated The novel creates a scary two dimensional world, a lunatic asylum on a grand scale where all inhabitants are addressed as patients and delinquents and where plastic surgery is used indiscriminately to betafy the majority of women It is unsettling and frightenin [...]


    Rob

    There are plenty of good ideas here, although occasionally Hartley falls too deeply in love with these ideas and spins them out too long The narrator intrudes and sometimes reduces Jael 97 to something of a cipher The twist is also predictable because of Hartley s unbalanced sympathies when he introduces the character However, all in all there is a pace and a flow of striking points that make this post apocalyptic vision gel and attract.

    Good old British dystopia.From the land that gave us 1984, Never Let Me Go, Brazil, Brave New World, Lord Off The Flies, Clockwork Orange, Crash, V For Vendetta now read Facial Justice.In an age where beauty if forbidden women have to undergo disfuguring operations to remove their natural beauty A good readFrom the author of The Go Between


    Yael

    Feminist dictatorship FTW would love to see a good movie version.


    David

    Interesting but cold dystopian novel Complex but rather full of itself and perhaps with less to say now than it did at the time of publication.


    Joshlynn

    This sounds like the title of a porno taking place in a courthouse.


    Catherine

    This book was great Really made you think


    Everly

    Hmm Vacillated between fascinating and insufferable Think of that Twilight Zone episode where everyone is fugly and the beautiful people are pitied and get surgery for their unfortunate appearance.


    Aaron Slack

    Some very interesting ideas about manipulating society via guilt over inequality, but fell a bit short as a novel Sort of an angry feminist version of Brave New World.
