Oryx & Crake (MaddAddam #1), by Margaret Atwood

I loved this book, which is not surprising since I have loved just about everything by Margaret Atwood I've ever read. It's slightly off the beaten path for her in that it doesn't deal primarily with complex / ambivalent / dark relationships between women, and I have to say that post-apocalypse sci-fi is definitely at the bottom of the list in terms of genres I'd expect her to try. Still, if someone was going to spin a completely original and unique post-apocalyptic yarn full of dynamic and interesting characters and masterful writing and straight-up nail it first time out of the gate, I'm not surprised it was her. Fantastic. Could not put it down.
