By the author of The Handmaid's Tale and Alias Grace
Toby, a survivor of the man-made plague that has swept the earth, is telling stories.
Stories left over from the old world, and stories that will determine a new one.
Listening hard is young Blackbeard, one of the innocent Crakers, the species designed to replace humanity. Their reluctant prophet, Jimmy-the-Snowman, is in a coma, so they've chosen a new hero - Zeb, the street-smart man Toby loves. As clever Pigoons attack their fragile garden and malevolent Painballers scheme, the small band of survivors will need more than stories.

MaddAddam - the end
What can I say that hasn't already been said? You have to keep reading to find out what happens but you don't want it to end. As always, Margaret Atwood strikes an uncomfortable balance between a fantasy future and a world that's all too familiar. Long may she continue writing!
