Do you like books that make you analyse and question things? I truly do and for that reasonI want to thank Peg Tittle for giving me the opportunity to read and review her latest release It Wasn’t enough, a powerful and introspective dystopia, that depicts a kind of apocalyptic world without women.
First of all, I’d like you to imagine how the world would be like if one day all the women disappeared from the face of the earth. And because that thought was so intriguing I got hooked to this book from the first two sentences and it didn’t disappoint me. .
We meet many male characters along the chapters, who all react differently to the new situation. We learn about their sad or tragic stories and their coping mechanism. Andrew starts to understand and maybe learn some new things along the way. But for me, the character who really stood out was Marcus. He raised so many questions and tried to understand the situation through a sociological point of view, a view that is so introspective, blunt and true, in many ways.
Is It Wasn’t enough a bit dark? Yes, but dark is also the reality we live in. It is dystopian analysis that digs deeply into the core of humankind. We are led to understand why we act/don’t act in certain ways and to see many faults our society has. I do hope there will be a sequel.
It is a book I truly recommend for a book club as the discussions could be endless. It wasn’t enough is short, concise but very moving. I would also like to know a man’s take on this book.
My rating is 5/5⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
