The Unit by Ninni Holmqvist Publisher: Other Press (June 9, 2009)
The Unit is a book that to a woman of 62, like myself makes one think of how worthless and dispensable other see us. The Unit give you some pleasures but there is a high price.If you have nothing to add, you might as well contribute your working body parts to those that do. The characters were ok and in a future world. Is this the direction our world is soon to take ? What do we really expect for ourselves, only for those that have money or those that have power .. forget the rest of us?
Geez, always knew my worth would be from that of my children, but they too have gone. READY SET GO… a thought provocating book, or “Hey God I am ready to leave now”.
I have to go back and see now, why Anna Marie purchased the Handmaid’s Tale. I think it’s also a futuristic tale maybe that is why she chose to leave early. The future is and will be terrifying.
