Loved IT!! "Oryx and Crake is on my favorites list, this one has to go right next to it. "The year of the flood" is a side-quel to "oryx and Crake" so I guess putting it there makes sense. Now I feel that I have to revisit "Oryx and Crake", since I read it a few years ago, I need to refresh my memory. A very good read! Margaret Atwood is a flip'n genius.
