Marking my place. I did this for Alevel many moons ago-
and would like to see what everyone else thinks

Count me in too, if I can get it read in time. Don't think I've read this since I was an impressionable teen (and it made a big impression on me at the time, so I'm really keen to reread it).

I'm intending to make this smile

I've just bought it on Ebay because my uni library only had one copy which was on loan. Harrumph.

I'm going to do my best to take part. it's a good few years since I read it, so a re-read might be in order.

Going to mark my place, I've not participated in one of these before, so please be gentle with me!

suwoo Wed 08-Jun-11 09:22:58

Neither have I, Yank. We'll be fine. grin

My old copy has been highlighted in several places by 19-year-old me. Will be interesting to see if 15-years-older me can figure out WHY I was doing it.

I've it finished today, just took three hours or so. I have made notes ready for next week. I bet your 19 ear old self's notes are very useful.

Bumping for my 'threads I'm on'. Does the chat take place on this thread?

Hi all. I'm marking my place too. I studied this for csys (Scottish, kind of like a level) and have re read it many times.

You should re read it if you haven't already princehumperdink
It's one of those books that you notice something new almost every time. Especially as your own perspective/life experience changes

Would love to join in if I can make it - read this last year, rediscovered Atwood after loving Oryx and Crake - so marking my place.
