    Hooray for a Canadian book! It has been some time since I read it and my memory for such things is simply terrible so I remember nothing of the details. I do very much like Atwood (but they will kick you out of Canada if you say otherwise). What did you think of it (or did I miss the review on the blog)?

    Yes, you missed it. :p Long story short, I liked it but with reservtions about its originality and agenda.
