    Hope you’ve both been well. I feel like I’ve lost touch with you guys, so can’t wait to listen to this episode and catch up.

    I want to listen to this very badly right now, but I have to go to bed. I want to hear about your shared longing for a post-apocalyptic world – you guys are my people! I thought I was alone with my crazy thoughts – I mean, why would I long for something like that?!

    Listened while wrapping presents πŸ™‚ Tania, I feel like you had more/other reservations about this book that you didn’t get to? Am I right? I would listen to a whole episode of you ranting about male sexual hangups πŸ™‚ Speaking of hangups… when I read this book, I had a real crush on Jimmy, and I don’t mean like “isn’t he dreamy” kinda crush, I mean, “I would do terrible things with him and hate myself afterwards” kinda crush… lol…

    I hope you guys read the rest of the series. The other two books are very different. Are either of you going to read any more Atwood this year? I’m probably going to read Cat’s Eye and/or The Penelopiad. She’s here in April too, I already got my tickets!

      I did enjoy the book quite a lot, but I had to admit that the writing was quite a let down after Station Eleven. Everything has been a bit of a let down after that πŸ™‚
      And if it’s what the people want, I’ll get on recording a whole episode of my ranting against authors who expect me to find entire books about male sexual neuroses to be interesting.
      I’m not sure when I’ll get around to the next books, but I will because I do think she has a great idea developed here.
