it was amazing
bookshelves: 2008reads, speculative-fiction, dystopian-post-apocalyptic, adult

This is the third Atwood book I've read, and it's my favorite so far. There's something about this one that I like better--something in the tone, the idea that something happened to make the world this way, as opposed to just This Is How The World Is Now. It's fascinating, the slowly-unfurling revelation of what happened to create this new, empty world.

Summer You can borrow my copy!

Brandy No need! We just picked this up (used, of course) from the Harvard Bookstore yesterday.

In order to get around to reading this, I first need to finish Owen Meany, and I'm starting to have my doubts there's enough time left in the universe to do that... (I'm enjoying it but it's taking FOREVER.)
