Review Corner


"DrippingWords, otherwise known as Caitlan, is a gorgeous soul with a knack for bringing real life into the bulk of her poetry. With her hands in almost every aspect of the dA community in general--from a lovely suggestion on the notes system to book covers and group participation--Caitlan is bound to steal your heart with her writing and keep you coming back for her personality. She's also just started putting up her news article, Let's Talk Writing, again, featuring some of the most prominent names in the literature community. You're sure to fall in love with DrippingWords gallery, so go give it a thorough look-through!"

"Caitlan (DrippingWords), never ever stop writing. Every single time I open up one of your new uploads I just know I'll be blown away by your imagery, or the pure heartache in your words. You'll never know how much trouble I had picking out that one single piece of yours to feature, that's how great you are. Like I said before, if I could favourite you I would, and so should many, many others."
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume

"DrippingWords has been a constant supporter of a lot of initiatives within the community, most notably the now defunct DailyLitDeviations and the newly created DailyLitRecognition. I don't even know how many years she's been dedicated to helping the crew there bring great literature to the forefront, but I do know that I enjoyed working with her when I was helping over there. She's patient, intelligent, helpful, and full of great ideas. This community needs a lot more people who are willing to be the helpers, in my opinion. We could all take a leaf out of Cait's book."

"DrippingWords, Caitlan, I must say I'm thrilled you're back and writing again. You are a truly wonderful person, an absolutely fantastic asset to this community and an inspiration to me in all facets of my deviantART life. Please, please don't ever stop being your amazing self because you inspire more than you know and I love you. :heart:"

CRLiterature Book Club Journal Header by inknalcohol


'Lo, all! I hope you're enjoying the book so far; I know I am! To get this started, this is a reminder that we will be discussimgon up until the end of Section 8, so if you've read beyond that, be careful not to spoil the book for the rest of us! Now, on to business.

Question 1

The writing style in this book is a lot different compared to others, even in the same genre. Do you think that the style fits the story? Does it make it easier to read? Or, do you think the style draws away from the world that Atwood is trying to depict? Explain.



Question 2

We're also introduced to a lot of the characters, settings, and world building during flashbacks. Do the flashbacks draw you farther into the story, or do they pull you out of it? Do you think Atwood made the right choice in the way she presented the story? Why or why not?



FAN ART

Oryx And Crake- Snowman by jason-courtney Welcome To Organ Inc. by MatRoff Oryx Wallpaper by justNE1else


Question 3

Oryx and Crake includes many details that seem futuristic, but are already apparent in our world. What parallels stood out to you between the items in the world Atwood has created and those in the world as we know it today? Anything that is totally unrecognizable?


Question 4

Margaret Atwood coined many words and brand names while writing the novel. Have you had any trouble understanding what she is portraying? Do you think she should have used vernacular that we are familiar with, or do you think that would have limited the story?




ACTIVITY

There have been a lot of different covers for this book through out the years.




Let's pretend that you're given the opportunity to design the next cover. What would it look like? What would you include from the story? If you're a visual artist or photo manipulator, show us! If you think you can't create what you envision, tell us! But, I would like to encourage everyone to try their hand at making a cover, no matter how terrible you think your attempt will be. ;)


PRIZES



All you have to do to win is participate in the discussions in the middle and end of the month, reply to other people's comments, write reviews or fan fiction, or draw fan art! I'll be tallying up points and the person who contributes the most will win this month's prize!



If you're done with the book, head on over to the Book Club Calendar to see what we're reading next!

Much obliged for the markedly generous gift of the finest Llama in the world.
Allow me to return the sentiment with the choicest Llama of my collection!
(Pardon my language. I've just read Emma, which has temporarily altered it into epicness;P)
