    In the present day, as the man-made apocalypse unfolds, three strangers navigate the chaos. Lila, a doctor and an expectant mother, is so shattered by the spread of violence and infection that she continues to plan for her child’s arrival even as society dissolves around her. Kittridge, known to the world as "Last Stand in Denver", has been forced to flee his stronghold and is now on the road, dodging the infected, armed but alone and well aware that a tank of gas will get him only so far. April is a teenager fighting to guide her little brother safely through a landscape of death and ruin.

    Peter because he seems to be the moral compass for all of the characters.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I listened to the Passage. This is equally awesome.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Twelve: A Novel and why?

    Months after the Waterless Flood pandemic has wiped out most of humanity, Toby and Ren have rescued their friend Amanda from the vicious Painballers. They return to the MaddAddamite cob house, newly fortified against man and giant pigoon alike. Accompanying them are the Crakers, the gentle, quasi-human species engineered by the brilliant but deceased Crake. Their reluctant prophet, Snowman-the-Jimmy, is recovering from a debilitating fever, so it's left to Toby to preach the Craker theology, with Crake as Creator.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    As much as I loved many aspects of this book, I found myself often annoyed by Toby's ruminations on her relationship with Zeb. It was like Atwood was exploring some post-middle-aged romance when I really wanted the plot to be more about the Crakers and the post-apocalyptic atmosphere they now all inhabit.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I missed the Jimmy from Oryx and Crake. Hearing his part read by the female narrator, who made him sound like a sick old lady, was extremely disappointing. He spends most of the book unconcious and then when he wakes up, his character is poorly developed. I had such high hopes for his character and in the end... well, I don't want to spoil it, but highly disappointing!


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I liked the narrator who read Zeb's part the best, but Bernadette Dunne, though she is a good narrator, makes me feel like the book should be for retired women.


    Was MaddAddam worth the listening time?

    Yes. I could never have NOT read the third in this series. Oryx and Crake had such an impact on me.
