My Reviews

Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood
 
Fantastic, Brilliant, Dark
a cautionary tale that manages to be thought provoking yet quick to read

The lesson of the cautionary tale isn't surprising, but the memory-flashback narrative format of the story is interesting and well-crafted. Atwood sprinkles the book with little gems (made-up words, amusing/ironic details) that make you want to re-read in order to catch those artistic touches.

 
Difficult, Confusing, Epic
a truly "American" tale

Take a few hours to really get into the book; the characters (even minor ones) come alive and resonate long after you put the book down. Besides being an amalgamation of epic novel, comic book, and Citizen Kane, the book also portrays the debvastating effects of the holocaust on individual lives without being a "holocaust story."

 
pop culture philosophy and humor
