    Story
    (667)

    The times and species have been changing at a rapid rate, and the social compact is wearing as thin as environmental stability. Adam One, the kindly leader of the God's Gardeners - a religion devoted to the melding of science and religion, as well as the preservation of all plant and animal life - has long predicted a natural disaster that will alter Earth as we know it. Now it has occurred, obliterating most human life.

    Melinda says: "thought-provoking, engaging dystopic fiction"
    "Disappointed Atwood Fan"

    Story

    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.
