A fun little afternoon quickie, that promised a “bad-guy” (NOT bad-boy) thrill!! All of the horrible “what ifs” raced through my mind, when a lone woman is thrown into a practically all-male prison in a futuristic sci-fi/post apocalyptic read. One where society and the government has a whole new set of rules (and some of ’em… inconceivable)!
The whole “survival of the fittest” theme dictates this story and has us reevaluating equality issues (specifically between men and women). Because no matter how far we’ve come in our society, when subjected to the brinks of anti-social hell, all the rules and rights are thrown right out the window. Primal urges, anarchy and a fight to survive dictate a new way of life (or death). In this prison, it is… a “dog eat dog” world, and women are just a commodity.
