Description

Set in the visionary future of Atwood’s acclaimed Oryx and Crake, The Year of the Flood is at once a moving tale of lasting friendship and a landmark work of speculative fiction. In this second book of the MaddAddam trilogy, the long-feared waterless flood has occurred, altering Earth as we know it and obliterating most human life. Among the survivors are Ren, a young trapeze dancer locked inside the high-end sex club Scales and Tails, and Toby, who is barricaded inside a luxurious spa. Amid shadowy, corrupt ruling powers and new, gene-spliced life forms, Ren and Toby will have to decide on their next move, but they can't stay locked away.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

    Continuing the MaddAddam series. This book takes you into a different, dystopian world not unlike our own. I really enjoyed being able to continue the story started in Oryx and Crake.

    Amazing. A great story about friendship, faith, human endurance, and a phenomenal commentary on the way in which mankind affects ho's surroundings, and the possible near future for us. Scary accurate, and a great warning as well.
