I love Kingsolver, (especially Animal, Vegetable, Miracle - non fiction, I know!), but I hated the end of the Poisonwood Bible. I thought it wrapped up too quickly and it felt incomplete and rushed to me.

Hey - when are we doing Chopin? I have to admit that SLS and blogs have taken up too much of my reading time - I need to change my habits!

Going to take some lazy time tomorrow to read.

I adore Atwood as well. I was re-reading Kate Chopin's short stories but switched off to re-read Barbara Kingsolver's Bean Trees. Kingsolver is near and dear to me as she is an alum of my college. Some of her stuff reminds me of Atwood.

P.S. I concur - The Blind Assassin was great!

A very good movie was made of The Handmaid's Tale; Natasha Richardson, Faye Dunaway, Aidan Quinn and Robert Duvall were in it. I'm still reading 2666 - very good, but quite the tome.

I love Margaret Atwood. Try The Blind Assasin.

Also all bibliophiles, look at Bookmarks mag. Very fun to read for those lovers of reading!

I just finished "The Handmaid's Tale" by Margaret Atwood. It's an interesting though disturbing projection of a future U.S. overrun by a misogynistic regime. One of my kids recommended it to me.

Black House was the first gift my hubby ever bought me right after we met.

Reading Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs before we go see the movie, John Carter.

While on our vacation I read "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest" by Stieg Larrson (last book in the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trilogy), then we saw the Dragon Tattoo movie in the discount theater.

If you enjoy historical fiction, I highly recommend anything by Wilbur Smith

Thanks for the additional info about Dunces! I guess I did not realize that Percy was a novelist also - I'll have to look into his works. And neat that you have a family connection to him.

I will start 2666 by Roberto Bolano today.
