Review: Nomansland by Lesley Hauge

Sometime  in the future, a lonely, windswept island 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 the 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—high-heeled shoes, teen magazines, make-up—found there. What are they to make of these mysterious things? And what does it mean for their strict society where friendship is forbidden and rules must be obeyed—at all costs?

This book was an okay representation of a spartan like society in a post apocoliptic world. It made me guess and think in certian spots, but other than that I really did not enjoy this one. Possibly a good book for enemies of feminism. The answers to the questions in the back of the book were pretty funny.
