QueenTide by Donna Fisher, is an intriguing story about women empowerment and uses fierce yet gentle feminist Bodie Hughes as the face of a feminist movement. She finds herself tackling challenges faced everyday by average women and encourages them to find the strength in their voices. However, she does not tackle all these challenges all by herself, it is a movement.
Fisher writes with passion and is able to intrigue your mind with vivid images of what goes on in each chapter of the book. She adds background knowledge of psychological common patterns in her writing and allows the reader to see and understand the psychology behind each character’s behavior and motives. Fisher manages to play mind-tricks with her writing on the reader by using her metaphors. Just when you think you have everything figured out she hits you with a plot twist.
Personally I am a reader who loves relating to at least one character in the book. Fisher manages to make me relate to more than just one character, it is even hard to have a favorite! She ensures that each character is given their chance to tell their story by including their background stories, when you think one character has it bad she then adds another twist to the story.
At first I was a bit confused with the first chapter of book but then eventually I got into the flow of the book, once the characters’ backgrounds were explained. Fisher manages to bring in every single issue that is considered taboo or an issue that is not widely and openly spoken about, issues that we as women deal with on a daily basis yet are forced to keep quiet and keep on acting like we are living in a world of so-called equality. However, the humor most of the characters show does bring some levity to this story.
The genuine friendship between Brodie and Lilith is definitely complicated at first, since Lilith at the beginning is a scared woman with no voice who is then put in the same environment with a woman who is completely the opposite of her. This created a riveting dynamic that I really enjoyed, and eventually shows that who you surround yourself with is who you eventually become.
QueenTide by Donna Fisher is an engrossing book that will appeal to women and show that they are not alone in this world. I think it would also appeal to anyone looking for an impassioned dystopian-esque political thriller. It has been a long time since I have read a book that I could easily engage and relate too.
