  "Synthetic viruses" by mitznmutts (see profile) 06/24/07

Your review of this book is actually about another book- I believe it is Dogs of babylon-
This book is about the creation of a synthetic virus that is meant to kill off all the undesirables in the world and the aftermath of what happens when it wipes out humankind. Very weird but good, as only Atwood can do. If you liked A Handmaid's tale you will likely get into this one also.

I love it,but some will not like it at all. It could be classified as science fiction-like.

This made me love scifi. Margaret Atwood is such a great writer. This novel is a flashback that may seem confusing out of the gate but 3 chapters in and its hard to put down.
