Thoroughly thought-provoking. Deserves multiple readings.
The Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood
" Agreed. I sat on this book for months trying to finish it. It was so stupid, and so not funny. I think Atwood's Magic is spent. "

Bondama I absolutely LOVE that picture of Jasper Fforde... and he's MARRIED, damn him!!
