Day 13 — A fictional book

The book I am currently reading (or trying to!) is The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood. It’s the follow-up book to one I mentioned earlier – Oryx and Crake. Broadly, it is a dystopia story, set in a time in which corporations rule, and the world is starkly divided into the haves and the have-nots. So just your standard sci-fi fare really.

But I really love the way that Atwood builds a story, and how she breathes life into her characters. I’m about a 3rd of the way in and although I love reading, and really want to sit down and absorb this book for a day or two, I just don’t seem to find the time.

Hockey, skating, dancing, running, socialising, working, eating, sleeping, wife-mother-nana-ing take up so much damn time!
