It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

The Year of the Flood: A NovelBooks Completed Last Week
Last week I finished The Year of the Flood, by Margaret Atwood. I'm not going to write a long review of it, but just a short one here. I loved the book all the way through, I mean, Atwood is an excellent writer. But the end bugged me because there wasn't really an end. The book just faded out; nothing was really resolved. Books with endings like that leave me feeling very unsatisfied! I seem to remember Oryx and Crake, ending in that way too.
Books I'm Currently Reading
I'm working my way through The Narcissism Epidemic: Living in the Age of Entitlement, by Jean M. Twenge and W. Keith Campbell. Boy is this book dense! Lots of statistics and studies quoted. It's definitely interesting, but it's taking me a long time to read it. I also started Oryx and Crake again, for some reason, even though I know the end will disappoint me. I guess I want to read it again because The Year of the Flood is actually a prequel to Oryx and Crake. And I don't remember much about Oryx and Crake. I need to know!
