“In a post-apocalyptic, post-BigCorp, reality, two women try to survive in an empty world with genetically engineered animals. Discussing science versus nature and the hurt and healing of religion this novel covers a lot of ground and even has room for touching relationships.” ~RookReading

* This is the second novel in the MaddAddam trilogy, but this novel can be read on its own, without reading Oryx and Crake.


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.
