The Year of the Flood
I'm finding that I like Margaret Atwood's dystopian novels. I didn't like The Year of the Flood as much as I liked The Handmaid's Tale, but I enjoyed it. The end seemed a little weak to me though. Most of the book is flashbacks, but once you're caught up to the current time, there's a bit at the end in that time. I don't know if that part was just too short, or if it would have helped if I'd read Oryx and Crake, but I didn't like it as much as the rest of the book. Still, I thought it was an interesting read.
