Book Review: We Need to Talk About Kevin

Book No 29 : Oryx and Crake

Margaret Atwood is a genius. I have found some of her longer works inaccessible, but ‘Oryz and Crake’ is absorbing and thought-provoking. It is the first of a trilogy, followed by ‘The Year of the Flood’ and ‘MaddAddam’. 232 more words
