Publisher Description

From the Booker Prize–winning author of Oryx and Crake, the first book in the MaddAddam Trilogy, and The Handmaid’s Tale. Internationally acclaimed as ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR by, amongst others, the Globe and Mail, the New York Times, the New Yorker, and the Village Voice

In a world driven by shadowy, corrupt corporations and the uncontrolled development of new, gene-spliced life forms, a man-made pandemic occurs, obliterating human life. Two people find they have unexpectedly survived: Ren, a young dancer locked inside the high-end sex club Scales and Tails (the cleanest dirty girls in town), and Toby, solitary and determined, who has barricaded herself inside a luxurious spa, watching and waiting. The women have to decide on their next move--they can’t stay hidden forever. But is anyone else out there?

Wonderful book

Margaret Atwood proves herself to be a master yet again, and still. Not that she needs to prove it. Amazing characters, wonderful writing and incredible imagination. I read this before reading Oryx and Crake (did not know it was a trilogy) and did not feel I had missed out. It stands alone, but I also loved going back to read O&C after (then to go between both to fill in gaps/see the parallels). I could not put it down. I'm excited about now starting in on Maddaddam.
