    PDF/EPUB Blue Ticket eBook Ã × tripzmode.co blue epub, ticket download, Blue Ticket PDFI should have listened to my intuition and skipped this one I couldn't though I loved Sophie Mackintosh's The Water Cure so much that I had to read her new bookI'm sorry to say I found it boringIt's a book about women's choice to choose and is set in probably present day England The majority of women are not allowed to have babies though we are never told the reason A lottery determines who will have a procedure to stop them from getting pregnant and who will be forced to have babiesThe young girls get no input They simply receive either a white ticket baby making material or a blue ticket nope you're not allowed to pass on your DNA Perhaps those who are mothers or who want to be will find this enjoyable than I did I couldn't relate to the characters at all in their longing for a child The story follows Calla a blue ticket holder who figu

    PDF/EPUB Blue Ticket eBook Ã × tripzmode.co blue epub, ticket download, Blue Ticket PDF3 4 starsThis is Calla’s story in an unnamed country place or time She lives with her father until her first menstruation and then is taken with other girls to The Lottery where she receives a blue ticket which is placed inside a locket She is also painfully fitted with an IUD coil and dispatched to the city to live a childless life of freedom White ticket girls go on to be able to produce children The states will is enforced by Emissaries so there is no way of avoiding your fate She eventually works in a lab and very much like a lab rat she has to tell her thoughts to Dr A However Calla has other ideas about her destiny and she’s out to make her own choices This leads to punishment and banishment and a dangerous journey to try to get to the border and freedom Along the way she meets a few other women in a similar situation Calla is the storyteller This is a very strange possibly even weird book and it’s very unsettling Calla n

    PDF/EPUB Blue Ticket eBook Ã × tripzmode.co blue epub, ticket download, Blue Ticket PDFThe thing is bookshops are over packed with 'feminist dystopias' obsessing about babies and motherhood Yes reproductive rights remain a contested issue but Atwood nailed the topic and this feels like one of many many also rans I loved the twisted fairy tale aura of The Water Cure but this feels unoriginal in comparison It's hard to buy into the simplistic premise that has minimal world building to convince and the writing is merely workmanlike Overall this lacks conviction and energy disappointingly flabby with little tension or driveARC from NetGalley

    PDF/EPUB Blue Ticket eBook Ã × tripzmode.co blue epub, ticket download, Blue Ticket PDFThere are two paths a girl can take in life and both are governed by a lottery A white ticket will see her with a baby a husband and a loving home A blue ticket will see this future disallowed to her and she will be cast out into the world to make for herself what she can For the teen girls who receive their lottery ticket the latter feels like freedom but to some of

    PDF/EPUB Blue Ticket eBook Ã × tripzmode.co blue epub, ticket download, Blue Ticket PDFThis isnot fun to read I DNF'd about halfway through and couldn't force myself to continue Reasons you would enjoy Blue Ticket You don't like characters or characters talking You are interested in hearing a single character tell you she's sad but like for the whole book You are bored by things like world building or character interactions Imagine picking up a diary written by someone from what I would call a mild dystopia That's it That's the book When you are a teenager you are given a ticket that will determine whether you are childless or will bare children The set up to the book and the reason for the dystopia is purposefully vague for what I assume is dramatic affect but mostly comes off as frustrating There is almost no dialogue Most of this story is a woman walking us through her life with minimal details The book hops time regularly within chapters which

    PDF/EPUB Blue Ticket eBook Ã × tripzmode.co blue epub, ticket download, Blue Ticket PDFFirst things first Mackintosh’s prose has gotten even better since her debut which I already enjoyed a lot There is something mesmerizing about the way she constructs her sentences and I am always in love with her metaphors and allusions On a sentence by sentence level this is excellent and cemented what I said after reading her debut I will always be reading what she writes even if this reading experience was uneven for meHer depiction of female longing and female friendship worked exceedingly well for me – and I would indeed argue that this is what she is interested in because where this book falters is in its dystopian elements Calla’s close first person narration is our entry point into the world Mackintosh has created here and as she knows very little about her society it remains vague and what we learn makes very little sense While this is arguably true for her debut as well there I thought the vagueness worked because it was never uite clear if what the pr
