Ms Atwood's "The Year of the Flood" parallels the events in "Oryx & Crate" from the perspective of a few members of 'Gods's Gardners'. As one would expect, a few of them also have connections to Crate and Jimmy (Snowman). I enjoyed this book more than Oryx & Grate as it takes place in 'Pleebland'...

"But hatred and viciousness are addictive. You can get high on them. Once you've had a little, you start shaking if you don't get more." When Oryx & Crake was first published, I could not put it down. It was my first Atwood, none of my friends knew about her (I was still at uni at the time) and pe...

I meant to get to this much sooner since I finished Oryx and Crake back in June. I think of this book more as a companion than a sequel to Oryx and Crake . This book takes place at the same time and also utilizes flashbacks but this book has two points of view. The story is told from Ren and Toby'...

The Year of the Flood is book #2 of the MaddAddam trilogy, but it is more of a companion novel than a sequel. It has a new cast of characters, and the events take place at the same time as the events in the first book. You could probably read this novel as a standalone without getting confused.While...

The Year of the Flood is another brilliant installment in the MaddAddam series. Even though it’s the second book in the series, a good majority of it deals with past events leading up to the man-made plague we saw spread in Oryx and Crake. But we also get to see a little of what happens afterwards, ...

The Year of the Flood tells the story of two women connected by their involvement in a sort of survivalist cult of vegan pacifists called God's Gardeners. Toby was rescued from an extremely abusive man by the group and although remaining skeptical of some of their beliefs she becomes a stalwart of t...

Read the audiobook version of this one to get the fully realized songs - an excellent listen.

After enjoying Oryx and Crake so much, I thought the series couldn't get any better. Instead, it grew and developed. I'm honestly not surprised. I am a long term admirer of Margaret Atwood's writing, and she was never disappointed me. The Year of the Flood happens simultaneously to the events of Ory...

Listened to this as an audiobook, which had the bonus of a different narrator for each point of view character and songs with music and singing for the hymns.I haven't read either of the other books in this series, and would be interested to now. I really liked the interweaving storylines and points...
