To Be B, or Not to Be B

OK, that was bad… Finished Daniel Quinn’s The Story of B the other night — wow! I enjoyed Ismael thoroughly, but B combines comfort-shattering teaching on sustainability within a really well-told, suspenseful story — I never saw any of the major plot twists coming. Planning on passing the book on — too important a book just to gather dust on a bookshelf.

Took a look at My Ishmael at the bookstore, but decided to pass it up for now — perhaps I’m being silly, but the premise doesn’t seem quite as provocative as the first two.
