De Kinderen van Moeder Aarde
Kinderen van Moeder Aarde - Thea Beckman

'De kinderen van moeder aarde' ("The Children of Mother Earth") is the first book in his Dystopian series that is one of my favourites. I've re-read them multiple times. I really think this book should be translated into English (I've so far only found a German translation), because these books are really good and different from other series. After a nuclear third world war that somehow changed the world's axis, Greenland, now known as Thule, has a very nice and moderate climate. Women are in charge.


Een van mijn favoriete series van vroeger. Ik was al een Thea Beckman-fan, en toen een vriendin van mij Kinderen van Moeder Aarde aanraadde, heb ik meteen maar de hele serie aan Sinterklaas gevraagd.

Ik heb er nooit een seconde spijt van gehad. Ik heb dit deel, en ook de andere met heel veel plezier en heel vaak gelezen. Blijkt ook dat het mijn interesse in Dystopische boeken heeft aangewakkerd. Ik was ook gefascineerd door Thule en de omgekeerde maatschappij. Dit is mijn op een na favoriete deel van de serie, na het tweede deel


NB: Dit is het eerste deel van de zogenaamde Toekomsttrilogie van Thea Beckman

Kinderen van Moeder Aarde (De Toekomsttrilogie, #1)
Kinderen van Moeder Aarde - Thea Beckman For the non dutchies:
This book (and the 2 others) are set in a world a thousand years from now. The earths ax has shifted and now Greenland has become green and lush (like Norway/Sweden now).
This country called Thule is ruled by women, men has absolute no say in anything. And they live green, no engines of any kind, no cars etc etc. Of course this works very well *g*.
Anyway far away in Europe things are a mess, droughts, wars etc etc. One country ( sounding suspiciously like Germany), the Baden empire want to colonise this country after finding it.
Three books later the Baden Empire is defeated and the countries decide to co exist next to each other.
In between loads of trips through wilderness, adventure, love, fun, sadness etc. Anything that will entertain a teenager.

I read these from the library and I was good friends with the manager there. When book 2 arrived I got to read the book before it was properly set up for library reading. I can still remember how happy and honoured I was.
Since then I bought the trilogy in hard copy and they are standing in my living room on an honoured spot in my cabinet.
