You read it here first! Mumsnet's Book Club pages are teeming with author webchats, reviews - and top freebies.
Just Oryx and Crake didn't appeal much and Year of the Flood did for whatever reason. Thanks
It made more sense that way round to me. I read O&C then Year of the Flood and then O&C again.
Thanks muchly Nebulous!
I wouldn't personally but I loved Oryx and Crake. The question is when will the bloody third one be out!
Well, I liked TYOTF and hated O&C so tbh I'd skip O&C altogether! TYOTF might make more sense having read O&C though.
It does make more sense reading O&C first. I didn't know there was going to be a third one?!
The third one is out in September!!! I am beyond excited by this - I love a bit of apocalyptic Attwood!
Noooo, no way. Got to read O&C and then TYOF. Bloody hell though those pigoons still haunt me for some reasons.Hurray for the third one...I thought she'd given up.
Oh well, now I'm excited! Never realised she was writing another in the series. Love a bit of post-apocalyptic fiction
Picked up Blind Assasin again off the back of this thread, I'd forgotten what a good book it is.
I read Oryx & Crake first, then The Year of the Flood - it made far more sense to me that way - no idea why. Looking forward to the last book.
I've only read TYOTF, it seemed to 'spoil' O&C a bit - is it still worth reading?
Message withdrawn at poster's request.
Definitely O&C first. Though I did WAY prefer it - a lot of TYOTF felt a tiny bit like adolescent fan fiction to me.Twinkly O&C hasn't been spoiled for you...read it, read it!
I've read both. Didn't notice any particular relationshhip between the 2! Thought they were stand alone books?!
