Just finished "We Need To Talk About Kevin". Very unusual book. Strangely fascinating, even though I really didn't like *any* of the characters. Mom was pretentious, judgmental and condescending, Dad was a head in the sand Ward Cleaver wanna be, Son was, while a genius, also psychotic, and the Daughter was just, well, sad. The story was compelling, and I couldn't stop reading it. It was an interesting look into the possible line of thinking and life of a kid who could and would become a school shooter type.
I doubt I'll read any of the author's, Lionel Shriver, other books though. After reading a few online interviews with her, she comes across as judgmental, condescending and anti-American herself. The Mother in "Kevin" was a self portrait IMO. Just to me she came across as a very unpleasant person.

My wife got me a kindle fire HD for my bday a month or so ago (30th - ouch) and I read the first of 5 parts, which was a free sample, and could not put it down. I picked up the omnibus and it has been an excellent read so far.
Takes place in a futuristic society of people that have lived in a silo for many generations after the Earth was heavily contaminated.
