The Year of the Flood - Margaret Atwood
This was hard work and nowhere near as good as it's predecessor. The first 250-300 pages are a chore, but after that we finally get a goods solid connection to Oryx and Crake and everything steps up a notch.
I had read that it was the poorest of the trilogy, and as I'm now about to start book 3,the new Maddaddam, I hope that's the case.
