Life before man

I’m now at the school library taking a pause in all the studying. Drinking some pretty bland coffee and reading Canadian fiction. More precisely Margaret Atwood, Life Before Man. I’ve also just managed to save an old book of Russian grammar (1962) from being thrown out from the library. I just couldn’t take them getting rid of it, so now I’m bringing it home.

  1. Hooray! You’re reading Canadian literature! I hate to admit it but I’ve actually never read any of Margaret Atwood’s books. I’ve seen her speak though and she’s witty and engaging. You can even follower her on Twitter!

      She’s good, a modern classic. Maybe you can give her a chance some day:)
      Great idea about twitter, maybe I should tweet her something:)

        i’ve read a couple of books by her, i think she’s got her own unique literary style–a kind of a mix between an exercise on psychoanalysis and supernatural fantasy all in one. Her fiction is very much resistent to any genre classification…so any attempt to do so would probably result in further confusion of her message….but out of so many Canadian writers, I truly recommend getting familiar precisely with Atwood’s literature.
