Highly recommend this book to complete the trilogy. Is there hope for mankind; possibly.
Toby's knowledge of Zeb's survival and ability to accept Zeb and herself together finally and openly. The Craker, Blackbeard's growth into his role in the greater community was both amusing and encouraging.
The story of Fuck was both entertaining and believable on some level. I will view this phrase in a much different way.
The pigoons and their request/bargain with the others to resolve the problem of the painballers offered hope for the future as two species at odds unite to overcome.
To have all three novels on Audible would be ideal. A very enjoyable and prophetic read. Perhaps one we should pay attention to as well.
This book provides insights into the story behind the story of Oryx and Crake and will leave the reader wanting more answers to what happens next. All I can say is I wish this book had come sooner.
Our desire to look and feel younger, eat whatever we want as much as we want, do what we want, but all at a cost to whom; ourselves ultimately. Margaret Atwood paints an image of our current society and what may be in store if we refuse to see the bigger picture. I found the behaviour of the pigoons was very disquieting.
Once Toby is reunited with Ren, knowing she is no longer alone she gains the strength needed to continue. Toby and Ren can set out together and find the others.
This was a fantastic listen and well worth it. Learning the characters stories and what brought them to where they are was gripping.
My only disappointment is that Oryx and Crake is not available on Audible so that I could enjoy it as well. I read it some years ago and would not like to listen to it. This book is better understood together with Oryx and Crake and not as a stand alone but just as enjoyable.
A glimpse into the inner workings of a small town, the fractured relationships within and between families, friends and outsiders that hold it all together while it falls apart.
A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry. This book tells a similar story of the fine balance between hope and despair and coming to terms.
The reader brought an understanding of the customs and traditions of the people and town as though he were a bystander watching the proceedings unravel. His tone and interpretation brought the town, surrounding area, characters and various scenes to life and made it all believable.
Yes! I listened to the first part of this book again while waiting for the rest of it to download. I then listened to it all straight through whenever possible. I would set a bookmark and put on the timer to listen while going to sleep and then refresh after waking in case I missed anything.
Looking forward to future publications.
