Couched as sentimental romance and utopian fantasy, Jones and Merchant's work satirises 19th-century gender roles and discrimination against women, unveiling the absurdities of socially constructed femaleness and maleness.
Written in 1893 by two women from Iowa (really!), this utopian fantasy satirizes 19th-century gender roles and discrimination against women, and is a precursor of 20th-century feminist utopian novel of Charlotte Perkins Gilman's Herland. Parts of the story make lots of sense, and looking back now we can see how the world is still `a man's world' but having said that, this book, even at 100 or more years old, is still very hard hitting and Oscar Wilde like in its use of wit and sarcasm make many valid points.

I know utopian and dystopian fiction readers will enjoy this book, but I think women will find it very rewarding. If you like witty or sarcastic clever word play you will also enjoy Unveiling a Parallel.

Fascinating Utopian Fiction!
An unnamed male narrator arrives on Mars after a flight by 'aeroplane' (this was written 10 years before Kitty Hawk). Mars is much like Earth, and inhabited by Earth-like environment. Where it differs is in the social roles of the genders. Women occupy a place of equality; they have their own social clubs, take lovers, have children out of wedlock, and can even propose marriage to men. Of course, this subjects the narrator to much amusing discomfort. In the second part of the narrative, set in another country on Mars, the protagonist gets to meet a Christ-like 'Teacher,' and compares religion on both planets.

An interesting, humorous yet serious book that really deservers to be read. Its good on many levels, and well written.
This book, despite its obscurity, is one of the most clever and humorous novels published in late 19th America. Whether we label it a utopian novel, or an astute satire of the limitations of genders roles and 'proper' behavior for women, or even call this a feminist novel ahead of its time is unimportant because the book is all of these things and more.

At one level, it's a unique science fiction, but on another level, it's a very good feminist view of life, and at another, it's a good dystopian or utopian society, (it depends on your view if its good or bad).

The book is clever, interesting, and a good read, forceful in its view yet has enough humor to make it work for readers of all view points.

Great book!
