Tweedledum  (tweedledum) | 2016 comments I have an idea for a new book game. similar to "First thing that comes to mind "but each entry has to be a book... It would be interesting to say why you made the connection ...unless it is really obvious... To make it a little more challenging I think there should be just one rule ...no posting of consecutive authors.... So if someone posts a book by Agatha Christie the next posting should NOT be an Agatha Christie book no matter what other connections there may be.

Tweedledum  (tweedledum) | 2016 comments To summarise:

Post a fiction or non fiction book that links in some way to the previous posting . Any connection is allowed except having the same author.

Feel free to comment on the connection especially if it is obscure or unusual.

Top tip....don't think too hard about it!

Tweedledum  (tweedledum) | 2016 comments Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood

The new dystopia..... Like 1984 I feel Attwood's vision is terrifyingly close to reality but unlike 1984 she manages to inject humour into the story.
