    I just finished reading The Handmaid's Tale last night. I really liked it.

    But what to read next? Where Are The Snows? (Maggie Gee) or Vernon God Little?

    I was supposed to be reading The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood for prospective coursework usage but I just don't like it! Am I missing something? I prefer Oryx and Crake.
    I had a similar experience: I detested The Handmaid's Tale despite having enjoyed Oryx and Crake.

    I'm not surprised If I take too long reading a book I just never get into it! Good luck with Northanger Abbey

    I'm reading that at the moment, although it seems to be taking me forever to read it, even though I'm really enjoying it. Strange.

    What do you think of it so far?

    Ruby by Virginia Andrews. Yet another tale of secrets and incest. :p: I was in Borders bookshop yesterday and I was like a kid in a sweet shop before realising that I can't afford novels. Hmph. Soooo many I wanted to buy!

    Love Rupert too, although I should warn you, so far, there arn't as many juicy details as I was hoping for

    Saying that, he hasn't had his big break yet so hopefully lots of interesting bits coming up

    The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova.

    I've heard a lot of negative reviews about it, but really enjoying it so far. Pretty creepy :afraid:.

    I've just finished reading 'And when did you last see your father', Stephen Fry's autobiography, 'Moab is my washpot' and 'Animal Farm' (Orwell). Someone suggested I read 'To kill a mocking bird' - has anyone read this? What did you make of it? Laus .
