    The long-awaited new novel from Margaret Atwood, The Year of the Flood is a brilliant visionary imagining of the future that calls to mind her classic novel The Handmaid's Tale. Adam One, the kindly leader of God's Gardeners -- a religion devoted to the melding of science and religion -- has long predicted a natural disaster that will alter Earth as we know it. Now it has occurred, obliterating most human life. Two women have been spared: Ren, a young trapeze-dancer, locked inside a high-end sex club; and one of God's ... Show more

Up there with her best

by Ellyb on Aug 2, 2010

In 'The Year of the Flood," Margaret Atwood revisits the world she built in Oryx and Crake. This time, however, we see the action through the point of view of two women with passing ties to the ridiculed 'God's Gardeners' group from the first novel. Ren and Toby, having survived the "waterless flood" by being barricaded within a sex-club and a spa, respectively, are two strong individuals who find themselves physically isolated and completely in the dark as to who else has survived. With no idea whether their friends and loved ones are alive, they must decide what course to take; stay hidden, alone, and safe, or venture out to see what can be salvaged of the world. Far from being a novel of desperation, this narrative shift results in a much different tone from Oryx and Crake, with more hope, more tenderness, and more optimistic protagonists. There are still incredibly disturbing elements, but the novel stubbornly clings to the idea that even in the darkest hour after a catastrophe, some element of human kindness and ingenuity will remain intact. I really enjoyed 'The Year of the Flood,' as I do most of Atwood's works; her narrative voice is rich and intelligent, and her characters are always well developed and believable.
