#24 Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood

Until I read this book, I loved every thing I'd ever read by Atwood. Hell, she won the Booker prize! The sticker on the book said this was short-listed for it, but I think it's lying to me.

I'm not really into the science fiction genre and a book about a distopia caused by scientific advances (say it ain't so!) wasn't that interesting. Even with a "twist" at the end, I wasn't that impressed. A friend loved it and passed it along but she hadn't read any Atwood before. I still highly recommend the Blind Assassin, Handmaid's Tale, Cat's Eye, and Robber Bride; those are all much more engrossing and better written.
