Red Clocks by Leni Zumas

In a world where women’s rights to their own bodies are constantly being threatened, Red Clocks by Leni Zumas doesn’t feel so far fetched.  While not being as immediately horrifying as The Handmaid’s Tale or Future Home of the Living God, Zumas has crafted a tale that shows how women from many different walks of life are changed as the laws are changed.  Her writing style is unique, using descriptors rather than names to describe characters, which causes each character to be very much their own person as well as being very relatable.  Everyone will find someone or parts of many different characters that they relate to.  I absorbed this book and believe that it is an important read.  A good reminder that only slight policy changes can completely uproot people’s lives.
