Atwood's dystopian post apocalyptic efforts like The Handmaid's Tale and Onyx and Crake are quite wonderful and memorable. This one falls short of those masterpieces.
The rather somber feel remains but this story seems aimless and ill conceived or formed.
I won't quit on Atwood yet but I can't really encourage anyone to start with this one as a good intro to her work.
