    The Farm is a biting social commentary Joanne Ramos is outraged in a good way Her outrage simmers below the surface at times Other times, it boils over At first glance, the novel appears as an indictment of the one percent and their exploitation of the poor But for Golden Oaks the novel s high end surrogacy business to thrive, the desperation of poor surrogates is only one component of the story Golden Oaks also depends on the complicity of the slightly better off poor, the cold ambition The Farm i...

    There has been a lot of hype surrounding Joanne Ramos s debut novel, so I must begin by saying yes, this is one of those rare occasions that the noise was completely justified Many have described it as a contemporary of Margaret Atwood s dystopian masterpiece The Handmaid s Tale, but given the dire situation the world currently finds itself in The Farm is not a million miles away from reality.So forget what you ve been told this is a stunning, complex work of fiction with its roots firmly base There has been a lot of hype surrounding Joanne Ramos s debut novel, so I must begin by saying yes, this is one of those rare occasions that the noise was completely justified Many have described it as a contemporary of Margaret Atwood s dystopian masterpiece The Handmaid s Tale, but given the dire situation the world currently finds itself in The Farm is not a million miles away from reality.So forget what you ve been told this is a stunning, complex work of fiction with its roots firmly base...
