Description

"A timely investigation of how much control we really have over our own situations, especially when it comes to women's choice . . . With glimmers of Kazuo Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go and the dystopian eeriness of The Handmaid's Tale, The Farm is equal parts entertaining and creepy."--PureWow

"The Handmaid's Tale vibes are strong, but the 'holy sh*t this book is genius' vibes are stronger."--Cosmopolitan ("The 14 Best Books Coming Out in May 2019")

"A horror story set in a not-impossible future, this fast-paced read will keep you on the edge of your seat as it explores topical issues with page-turning plot twists."--MindBodyGreen ("5 Books You Won't Be Able to Put Down This May")

"You know those books that immediately draw you in and suddenly you can't think of anything else? . . . A cracking, chilling but also human page-turner."--Joanna Goddard, A Cup of Jo

"A sharp takedown of the idea of American meritocracy."--Refinery29

"The Farm is a smart, thoughtful novel about women, choices, and the immigrant experience that asks the question: How far would you go for the American dream?"--PopSugar, "Buzzy Books to Read This Spring"

"[The Farm] hits home hard--a thrilling read about the myth of meritocracy, the way some people get ahead in life before they're even born."--New York, "Spring Books Preview"

"What's so striking about The Farm isn't that it imagines a frightening dystopia. This isn't a hundred years in the future, it's next week. This is reality, nudged just a touch to its logical extreme. Its very plausibility is a warning shot."--USA Today

"Heady, chilling . . . [Ramos] peoples her book with figures who are appealingly engaging--or, at times, engagingly repellent."--NPR

"Richly rendered and engrossing . . . [Ramos] has the acute gaze of the immigrant girl made good. Her book is a necessary one. . . . A great read."--The Guardian

"A haunting read . . . Ramos has crafted a real page-turner that combines all the hottest issues of the day: inequality, race and women's battle to reclaim their bodies from commodification by big business, with the eternal questions of how much we can sacrifice before losing ourselves completely. . . . The result is an entertaining novel that is also a serious warning."--The Times (UK)

"Subtle and at times thrilling, The Farm is a dystopia born of the world in which we live. It feels anything but removed from our current reality."--Paste

"[The Farm] is a fast, gripping read, and it's ideally suited to a period of growing political engagement, in which readers want art to grapple with the moral dilemmas of our time."--Pacific Standard
