I was wondering if anyone else had read this, and what they thought of it...Regards,M. Graham Trouble rather the tiger in his lair than the sage among his books.For to you kingdoms and their armies are things mighty and enduring,but to him they are but toys of the moment,to be overturned with the flick of a finger. -- Gordon R.Dickson

Recently on CBC (Canada's version of NPR for you people south of the border), there was a debate called "Canada Reads" in which Atwood's book made it to the final round. On that webpage there are the debates and opinions of the panelists. I've read most, if not all, of Atwood's other books, but haven't gotten around to this one yet. Her other foray into SF was The Handmaid's Tale, which was rather dark, but wonderful. Lori "All beings are the owners of their deeds, the heirs to their deeds."
