Margaret Atwood - The Year of the Flood
Follow up in the trilogy to
Oryx and Crake
, much improved over the first book. The characters are far more natural than her forced dialogue of teenage boys in the first novel. Enjoyed the back stories and charecters of Ren and Toby immensely. If the trilogy keeps improving like this then the third one later this year will be amazing.
The whole sermons by Adam One and the hymns were pointless, ended up skipping over them. Atwood tried to hard to add deep significant meaning to her book in a religious examination of society, like this will be some required University reading. It was too obvious and pretentious of Atwood, and like the critic Peter Griffin once said, "it insists upon itself".
