This is really for all three books as a series. I love a story that draws you into a completely different world instead of just telling you about the world. You have to live with the characters as their stories unfold. Atwood works the tempo well to bring you into this dystopian future. I am waiting for "Extinctathon" to be released
So many, but I do not want to give any spoilers. For me, unveiling the God's Gardeners in "The Year of the Flood" was just delightful and so fully formed as a world view.
They all did fine. For me the Crakers' use of "Oh" as part of every address to another person just rings in my mind. The music in the second book was way better than I first thought it might be. I can't imagine how the impact is achieved int he print version.
Never Mess with Mother Nature
When a full world like that has been imagined, I hate that it ends. That for me is the best compliment I can offer.
Yes, this is a delightfully conceived character, imagine Downton Abbey with humor. Good stories and just fun
The best girlfriend is a total hoot.
She is excellent. I made sure she was doing the subsequent books before I bought them. What fun she brings to listening.
Well I was moved to laughter everytime she committed some naive faux paus.
I am having to pace myself with these books, so I don't get through them all. Perhaps I will try some of her other books, but I am having fun with these.
Gritty, witty, surprising
Not quite on the edge, but anxious for the next development
I thought he was excellent throughout. Voicing the parts was well done.
The conversations with the igly ducking girlfriend of the murdered model were poignant.
Rowling has built a solid detective story base. Lots of good tensions to explore in the new book, which I just downloaded.
I would put it in the top 10 percent
It is akin to "The Last Werewolf" but better. It might compare in some little sense to the Hannibal Lector tales
He captured the patois of the period, his voice as Watson telling the story years after the fact sounded old. And that was well done!
"Holmes most disturbing case"
Though I figured out who the House of Silk was fairly early, they actual execution of the tale was surprising. Icky, oleaginous villans throughout. I hope he writes some more.
I cannot say. It was bad enough that I did not finish it.
I found his approach to horror to be "forced". He used lots of compounded metaphors to try and create a horrific scenario. By and large I think he failed. The scene of the experimental monkey's death was just over the top and I am usually a hard core forror fan. But economy can be as important as bloody-ness
It was flat and with little intonation. Put me to sleep, which a horror story should not do.
Sadly, none. I rarely quit a book, so this was really bad. What kept ringing in my mind was the old Curly joke from the Three Stooges. When he'd order breakfast he would order, "Burnt Toast and a rotten fried egg. I have a tapeworm and I don't want to feed it anything good." THAT was more creative than this book.
Can I have my credit back?
