    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"
    "Atwood at her very best!"
    Overall

    One of the few times I would say the audio book is better than the printed page. It's true . . . the "cheesy" music fits the parodical lyrics perfectly. I wanted to read it again immediately, but was afraid I would never leave M.A.'s world. As well-done as Handmaid's Tale or her other masterpieces - and the parody/irony/humor is so dry you'll need moisturizer when you are forced to stop listening and participate in real life.

    Mackenzie Allen Philips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare.

    Renato says: "much more than I expected"
    "spoiler warning"
    Overall

    Please note: This book is christian propaganda. I was not aware of this when I purchased it and was very surprised. The author has a clear agenda and you should avoid if if you are looking for an actual novel. Just so you know
