I just recently finished Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood and have to say that it was one of those books that I just couldn't get out of my head. I've read a bit about what makes something literary fiction, but I'm not sure if there is a hard rule about it. This book hits so close to home in my opinion on the state of our world, trends in history, the direction of our future, and human behavior that it is actually quite scary. Additionally, Atwood presents the plot following the one character but from two different points in time that eventually meet - This, in my opinion, was executed exceedingly well. Is it just me (I can be easily impressed), or is this book quite amazing? Would you consider it literary fiction? Also, I would be interested in titles of books similar in nature.
