Personal fave of '16.
"The things you love the most will one day hurt you the worst.”
Set against Occupy Wall Street and Chicago riots of '68, love, redemption and forgiveness. Beautifully written and rich with simple truths of life.
December 2016ORYX & CRAKE by Margaret Atwood.
Published in 2003, this is the first book in the MaddAdam trilogy. It's the end of the world, but not via nuclear war. This speculative fiction creates an all too plausible way for the future to unravel at the hands of a careless society who care only about selling more, consuming more, genetically creating whatever they can because they can, never asking if they should.
