This was w.e.i.r.d., but in a good way. I read it in two nights and I have never read anything like it. It is science-fictiony, but in one of those ways that the plot does not seem completely out of the question. I would not recommend it for everyone, but if you are looking to read something completely different, give it a go.
The Help was a book club selection that I missed the first time around. It was a pleasure to read and was the first time in a long time I have enjoyed fiction. I did not want it to end.
