This month MoM members could WIN 1 of 20 copies of The Natural Way of Things – the powerful new novel by Charlotte Wood.

She hears her own thick voice deep inside her ears when she says, ‘I need to know where I am.’

The man stands there, tall and narrow, hand still on the doorknob, surprised. He says, almost in sympathy, ‘Oh, sweetie. You need to know what you are.’

Ten young women wake up imprisoned in the middle of nowhere. What is their crime and who put them there? Guarded by two inept yet vicious armed jailers, the girls all have something in common, but what is it? With echoes of The Handmaid’s Tale and Lord of the Flies, this is a compulsively readable, starkly imaginative and thought-provoking novel.

The Natural Way of Things RRP: $29.99  

Available now where all good books are sold.

  • I need to know who the lady is, and why she is a prisoner so that if it ever happens to me, I know exactly whose butt I need to kick!

  • Just reading those two lines above and I now NEED to know whats going on. Whrre are they? What are they? Please send me a copy this stress can not be good for me.

  • TO see why people turn to crime

  • I love a book that keeps the mystery and intrigue going, I won’t give up reading until I find the answer. Even though sometimes it can get frustrating.

  • It sounds like a great read. I love books.

  • I have two very independent and adventurous daughters.Id like to share this book and moral with them for their own safety.

  • I love a good mystery or a tear jerker, sounds like this book might be both, a riveting read can’t wait to sink my teeth into it.

  • I love a great read and this sounds like one that would be a good way to spend an afternoon snuggled on my favorite chair.

  • I love to read and with myself reading it encourages my children to read. Unfortunately I’m out of new material!

  • I just love a mystery and can barely sleep, eat or function normally if the plot is gripping and well written. Just cannot put them down.

  • what can i say its my kinda book, :)

  • I believe misogyny is one of the themes of this novel – something most of us have had to deal with at some point. Fictional explorations of potential excesses of misogyny are important. They remind us to be vigilant – so I’d be interested to see Wood’s take on it.

  • Sounds like an intriguing read and I’m always searching for thought provoking reads

  • Because I love reading and discovering new authors and novels to add to my never ending book collection.

  • I love reading and would like to add this novel on my bedside table …
