    1. Ouch I have read 4 other novels by the author and have loved them Two had won the Miles Franklin award and in my opinion are classics of Australian literature A Woman of the Future also won the Miles Franklin so with that my expectations were high But I found this astonishingly tedious at times As usual there is the challenging thought provoking prose, the usual dark and satirical humour and the comments on society that make the author so attractive when at his best The satirical use of those of [...]


    2. Not really holding my interest at the moment Finally done I only finished this because I kept hoping it might finally get interesting The premise was sort of interesting But really, I shouldn t have bothered.



    3. A Woman of the Future is a both a multilayered political screed and an extended version of the aristocrats joke It rewards the patience and curiosity of the reader.


    4. There is a good book within this book, but it is tiresome to get at it The last third is far engaging than the previous two thirds as the mise en scene vignettes which are often dull, repetitive or frustratingly silly recede and the narrative of the titular character, Alethea Hunt, woman of the future, takes off Much of it concerns Hunt s sexual awakening and exploits but it is rarely titilating and the satire of this section often hits home For a reader interested in Ireland, I wouldn t start [...]

Not many books like this come along in your life It s incredible really, written in an incredibly literary, artful way and loaded with bizarre metaphors, absurd human growths, grotesque and surreal depictions and a healthy, ravishing analysis of the structure of society It s also full to the brim with sex, and sex of the disturbing sort, to be honest It s pretty confronting and some of it isn t pleasant reading either But this is a phenomenal book, even if the second half of it overdoes the sex [...]


    7. Miles Franklin winner from 1979, Age book of the Year 1980, what could go wrong Well have you ever heard of it It showcases the very worst of 70 s self indulgence Simplistic politics tick, dystopian world tick, objects growing out of people tick, a sick bag of pointless quirky characters tick Just don t bother I couldn t even be bothered getting to the confronting and controversial the abrasive or the epic Epic fail only saved from single star result as the grammar was nice and the occasional im [...]


    8. The strange imagery is an original metaphor for the oddness of being a teenage girl and discovering sexuality, self and independence.
