Catch up again

I'm recovering from 'orrible shingles and have been reading and re-reading stuff.
List incomplete at the moment. The comments may result from a slightly warped view on life, and poor concentration. ;-)

How the Dead Live - by Will Self - inventive and funny, but I lost interest about half way through.

Kate Atkinson - Case Histories and One Good Turn - very complex crime stories with loads of overlapping characters and stories.

Margaret Atwood - Oryx and Crake in a genetically engineered future, where Snowman is the only surviving human with all the failings of the race - until the very end. I found it absorbing, but ultimately uninvolving. And I love Atwood's work.
