The Post Birthday World by Lionel Shriver

I loved this book! The style in which it is written is so different from anything I've ever read. I was fascinated more by the way it was written and how gracefully the author tied everything together. Parts of it were a little tough for me to swallow.
I thought it was obvious that it was written by a man when he addressed the sexual prowess of the main female character-then I found out that Lionel Shriver is a woman! There goes that half-baked theory :0). Beyond that, Post-Birthday World gave me a lot to think about. To ponder the idea that a single decision, one that seems so minor and without consequence, can-and often does-completely change the course of your life-well, to say I was struck by that would be an understatement.
