One of the best books I've read

This was an option to read for my highschool AP class. When I read the info about it I was interested in reading this. I was so happy I read it because it was the only book I actually completely read in that class and enjoyed, and that means a lot considering I have A.D.D and can't STAND to read. Easily my favorite book.

Oryx and Crake

Unbelievable in it's nerve, riveting and not put downable!
I didn't start out to read it....I was planning on Atwood's Maddadam but when I read that Maddadam was third in a trilogy, I semi-grudgingly started with the first in the trilogy. I'm so glad I did.

I have now read all three in record time and they are not even 'my type' of genre. But the writing, fabulous story and lush vocabulary hooked me at once.....and has stayed with me....I don't want to start anything literary yet...I am having trilogy hangover!
