Herland is a utopian novel from 1915, written by feminist Charlotte Perkins Gilman. The book describes an isolated society comprised entirely of Aryan women who reproduce via parthenogenesis (asexual reproduction). The result is an ideal social order, free of war, conflict and domination. It first appeared as a serial in Perkin’s monthly magazine Forerunner. (Summary from Wikipedia)

Really great, and I'm only on chapter 2! Fabulous reading - the woman is able to convey the tone, attitude, and disposition of each character, as well as that of the overall story. The story itself is riveting, as well. Altogether, really well done.
