All in Good Storytime 📚 Episode 20

All in Good Storytime is an interactive, bookish, book club podcast hosted by Alanna, Katya, and Tia. To join the club, make sure you're following us on Twitter to get updates on what book we're reading and to what chapter we are reading through (or what anime we're watching and what episode we are watching through), and listen to the podcast here or on iTunes (see link below) to join in on the discussion. And don't forget to read along!

In the 20th episode of All in Good Storytime, we debate whether Jimmy is completely pathetic trash or trash that is worth our sympathy. We continue by hypothesizing whether this dystopian future is merely capitalism run amok. We contrast the differences between the humanities-driven Jimmy and the science-centered Crake and what judgments their characters make about the state of their society. Finally, we lament how Oryx was essentially absent in this section, but in her brief appearance she shuts down Jimmy's attempt to make her feel sympathy for him and his sad life.

Next week, we will be reading chapters 11 through the end of Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood.
