For those unfamiliar with the io9 book club, here's how it works: You read the book. We create a special book club post on io9 when the meeting is in session. That would be the post you're reading. Then everybody talks about the book in comments for a few days, starting right now.

We're hoping that Atwood will stop by in the next week to talk about the book. So, what did you think of Oryx and Crake?
Want to get started on our next book?
In November, we'll be reading Charles Stross' Neptune's Brood. It's a semi-sequel to Saturn's Children, but you don't need to have read the first book to appreciate this one (though if you're ambitious, we recommend reading both). We'll meet on Dec. 3 to talk about it.
