I just finished this book. I couldn't put it down. Now I'm starting Oryx & Crake by the same author. It has some of the same characters from The Year of the Flood. It tells the story about how the world ended up the way it did in Flood...The main character is Jimmy, who was Ren's boyfriend in Flood...

This Republic of Suffering. A book about death and dying in the civil war. Pretty interesting. Some of the statistics are staggering. Am struggling through it a bit now though..... looking forward to my next.

Finished the Lost Symbol by Dan Brown in just about one day and am now reading a thrift store find - The Forest by Edward Rutherford. It's nothing like what I usually read, but so far I am enjoying it.

I think you will like it. I did. Her books are always so unusual. And, they have such odd twists at the end. 'Nuff said about that.

I finished "South of Broad" by Pat Conroy. It's not as good as "The Prince of Tides" but few books are.

I liked it a lot. His character development is so full and complete. Halfway through the book I felt like I actually knew all the "people" in the book. I hated to see it end because I cared so much for so many of them.

I'm reading 'Ghost of Weir Academy' by R Dawn Weir. It is a good read. "Disappearance' was good. I hope there is more to it. It was left hanging at the end

About to start "Ma family and other Animals" by Gerald Durrell.

I bought it for my husband after reading many good comments on this forum. Well, he loved it and laughed aloud quite a bit.
So THANK YOU all.
