The Year Of The Flood

The Year of the Flood The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It took me almost 3/4 of the way through this book to realize that it was a sort of prequel to Atwood's previous book, Oryx and Crake. Works pretty well on it's own, too, though - Atwood's melancholy hopefulness and sneaky wry humor infect the story. A dystopian fable with some great characters.

I just picked this up to read. When I'm finished, I'll revisit Oryx and Crake.
