This was because the book contains no male characters, and there are some controversial sexual relationships. Motherlines takes a lot of Walk to the End of the World and inverts it - we switch from a male to a female central character, and discover that a lot of what had been presented as unchallengeable fact in the first volume is in fact very different looked at from the other side of the gender divide/5(4).

I had trouble with the first part of this book, originally a novel of itself, Walk to the End of the reality Charnas created seemed over-the-top, largely because of the manner in which I could see shreds of the modern world in this future society's misinterpretations of certain things common to us, and then on top of that, the culture she described was such an amplified version of /5(28).

Unlike the men of "Walk to the End of the World", the women of "Motherlines" are richly diverse in their behavior and display a full range of human emotions, good and bad. Rather, Charnas studies both her women's cultures with an objective eye, carefully pointing out strengths and weaknesses.

This makes for a thoughtful but at times somewhat slow-moving book. Motherlines is better written than is Walk to the End of the World, but lacks some of the earlier novel's power. The book has stirred up less controversy.
