Margaret Atwood is quickly becoming one of my favorites. I love her knack for putting unexpected & twisted spins on dystopian tales. This one was hard to put down and full of wtf?! moments!

Djspens This sounds really interesting! Added to my neverending TBR! 😁 1h

Taking a page form Hill's book and abandoning this one.
30% in, but the offending language just got to much...

Proud of myself for DNFing
I don't do it often enough.

This dystopia is set in near-future England. Southern Europeans are fleeing north away from drought and fire. England indentures those they accept, others are trafficked and work illegally. Even citizens are separated into those who get an implant and live in cities, and those who aren‘t and work in and are kept in enclaves. Loved the world building (she also has an earlier book in this world). This read as YA to me. #netgalley #dystopia

#currentlyreading I was worried to start this one because I wasn't sure if I'd remember the other books in the series, but I'm surprised at how much I remember 😁📚

With its measured pacing and straightforward storytelling, this novel feels like a book-length short story. There's something here about how we can become complicit in our own erasing by accepting first someone else's view of the world then someone else's view of ourselves. What we perceive with our own senses ceases to matter until even our ability to sense what's real fades away. Cautionary tale about conformity and post-factualism, perhaps.

Hooked_on_books Great review. I loved this one. 2d
ImperfectCJ @Hooked_on_books Thank you! I've been thinking about this book all afternoon. It's like contemplating a watercolor painting, layers and soft edges and half-grasped meanings. Sometimes I like a book even better while I'm digesting it than while I'm reading. 1d

A lot of fun and/or tiring things have been keeping me from the uninterrupted time I'd like to devote to the tagged book, which I'm really enjoying but which gets confusing if I read it in little chunks like I have been doing.
