    One thought on “Gloriana; or the revolution of 1900”

    1. It's so sad that this book has kind of been forgotten about. It's a feminist utopia with vision and passion that was written all the way back in 1890 by a Scottish feminist and war correspondent. Sure, some of the ideals don't really align with our modern feminist ideals, but some of them do, marking it as way ahead of its time. Plus, the plot is pretty exciting. There's some adventure in there - a little bit of kidnapping and espionage and infiltration of Eton. Who doesn't love that? With wit, [...]

    2. This was a borrow direct book and I was only a 1/4 of the way through before I had to return it . . . agony!
