This is the first Margaret Atwood novel I've read. The MaddAddam series keeps raising its head on many sites I frequent because I read a lot of dystopian fiction. I blame William Gibson's "Neuromancer" for my inclination to this genre (and cyber/techno punk). I will save for another day a my thoug...

This book is kinda really depressing but really amazing. Atwood describes this book as speculative fiction and I totally agree (and thus it's really depressing). Okay how do I explain the plot of this book without giving to much away. Snowman leads and teaches the innocent Crakers following a ca...

This is one of my favorite novels ever, and it’s the first book in one of my favorite trilogies ever. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve read it since it came out. I’ve been in a reading slump recently, so I picked it up again because I knew that I would enjoy it. I still love it as much as I di...

26/12 - I found this a little bit tiresome to read for at least half the book. It wasn't until we started to see what had happened to bring about the apocalypse that I really got interested. And then Atwood finishes it just as a really exciting and mystery-revealing scene was about to happen, a bit ...

Reseña: Enero, 20153.5(Esta representación bellísima de Oryx salió de esta página y tiene más dibujos espectaculares basados en el libro. Mirenlas!)Después de terminar la trilogía, me doy cuenta de que el primero es el único flojo de los tres.Oryx es un personaje sin demasiada sustancia, pero quizá...

Still pondering on whether I should give it 4 or 5 stars. It was a GREAT book. Atwood's writing style has again surprised me, it's done in a very intelligent way: weaving past and present together flawlessly. And just as in The Edible Woman, it was simplistic, easy to follow and latch onto, yet I've...

Margaret Atwood’s quickly becoming a new favorite author of mine. I admit I haven’t experienced a lot of her work yet, but that’s something I’m trying to correct immediately. After finishing her excellent collection, Stone Mattress: Nine Tales, I decided to try another one of her novels. The MaddAdd...

This book didn't disappoint me. Since about page 30, I'd been waiting for it to end. And it did!

Snowman, possibly the last human alive, oversees a tribe of genetically engineered humanoids in a post-apocalyptic near future. The narrative moves back and forth in time between Snowman's attempts to survive in the present and his reminiscence about how the world got to be in such a mess and his ow...

I truly wanted to like this book. Honestly, I already had the next ones on my kindle and everything, but I definitively will not be reading the rest of the series. The premise of the book seemed so interesting, I never could have guessed how bored it was all going to be. I may be in the minority,...
