English: Trinity College Library: The “Long Room” in the 18th century, watercolour of James Malton.

Daily Thoughts 1/16/2010

I am reading In The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood. The book incorporates many elements of her novel, Oryx and Crake in it. The book combines social satire with dystopian moodiness. Giant corporations run the world. Those who are not part of the corporations live in giant plebian ghettos. The story focuses around a radical environmental religious sect, God's Gardeners. I like the animals in the book, the rakunk, the glow in the dark rabbits, the bobkittens, and the intelligent pigs.

I finished reading this on the way home. It is an excellent novel. I'll probably write about it on Monday.
