Book: Oryx and Crake

Hannah - Oh, you have this book? Start reading it! It's really different, but it keeps you interested because of its strangeness.

I loved this book, just like I love all of Atwood's books. This was on eof the most frustrating books of hers I have read though. I just kept thinking the whole time "Just tell me what is going on!!". Can't wait to read your review

Nymeth - Oh, you must read it!

Juju - I know what you mean!

Christina - It's different, that's for sure. But I am enjoying it, thanks!

Sara - I love the cover too! So mysterious.

Becky - So true! It's confusing, but so strange that you can't stop reading.
