    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"
    "Brilliant view of possible future"

    Story

    Margaret Atwood continues to amaze me with her inventiveness, her humanity, her incredibly creative mind, in this well-read, wonderful novel. The two main women are flesh and blood people, their experiences forming their lives, their reactions determining the flow of those lives. The future she draws is so scary and yet so possible, just a continuation of what is going on in these early days of our 21st century. I haven't read Oryx and Crake, so can't compare the two, but this book has piqued my curiosity!
