Oh so close to perfect,
This review is from: Oryx And Crake (Paperback)
Another apocalyptic vision from Margaret Atwood and god it's good. The future she depicts is not exotic and alien but an uncomfortably plausible extension of the present. In particular the strangely compelling ChickieNobs left me with a distinct feeling of unease about eating takeaway fried chicken.
This is science fiction (or speculative fiction, if you must) with literary flair, a combination that made me tingle with excitement.
Then it ended. That excitement became confusion and disappointment. Was that it? Was I missing the point? Dark, sad, ambiguous, challenging - I positively enjoy these sorts of endings but why did it have to be another damp squib?
