Description
A sequel to both Oryx and Crake and The Year of the Flood, this conclusion to Margaret Atwood's "cunning, impish, and bracing speculative trilogy" (Booklist) explores the endurance of community and love in the survival of humankind—in whatever form it may take. Following the Waterless Flood pandemic that wiped out most of humanity, Toby and Ren have rescued their friend Amanda from the vicious Painballers. Now with them are the Crakers, the gentle, quasi-human species engineered by the brilliant but deceased Crake, and their reluctant prophet, Snowman-the-Jimmy, recovering from a debilitating fever. It is up to Toby to give the Crakers their theology, with Crake as Creator, while also dealing with cultural misunderstandings, terrible coffee, and her jealousy over her lover Zeb.

"The final entry in Atwood's brilliant MaddAddam trilogy roils with spectacular and furious satire.... Her vision is as affirming as it is cautionary, and the conclusion of this remarkable trilogy leaves us not with a sense of despair at mankind's failings but with a sense of awe at humanity's barely explored potential to evolve."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Atwood is ascendant, from her resilient characters to the feverishly suspenseful plot involving battles, spying, cyberhacking, murder, and sexual tension.... The coruscating finale in an ingenious, cautionary trilogy of hubris, fortitude, wisdom, love, and life's grand obstinacy."—Booklist
