"The trilogy may be her crowning achievement, a suite of books that ranks among the most important work produced by a writer from Canada, or any country, this century, and a narrative that will likely be remembered as her defining contribution to literature. Despite the fact the novel is set in a post-apocalyptic future, it is a very funny book. Maybe when the world ends all one can do is laugh." National Post 
   
In this #1 national bestseller and international bestseller, Margaret Atwood brings together characters from Oryx and Crake and The Year of the Flood for the thrilling conclusion to her speculative fiction trilogy, which confirms the ultimate endurance of humanity, community and love. Combining adventure, humour, romance, superb storytelling and an imagination that is at once dazzlingly inventive and grounded in a recognizable world, MaddAddam is vintage Margaret Atwood, and a moving and dramatic conclusion to her internationally celebrated dystopian trilogy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great read! I had to read this book for a university class so I initially wasn't too excited about it. Once I got into it though, I loved it and even bought the next book in the series. It's well written, the plot is unique and interesting, it's funny, captivating and overall something I would recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Maddadam Wonderful conclusion to a thoroughly enjoyable series. The narrative style and the changing voices reveal the best of human nature and allow the reader to rise above the brutality of the story and believe there is hope for a better future.

#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLERWINNER OF THE ORION BOOK AWARDFINALIST FOR THE INTERNATIONAL IMPAC DUBLIN LITERARY AWARDFINALIST FOR THE BAILEYS WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION FINALIST FOR THE LOCUS SCIENCE FICTION AWARDA New York Times Notable Book  A Washington Post Notable Book A Globe and Mail Best Book “The MaddAddam trilogy is, at its heart, a love letter to literature.” The Globe and Mail  “Atwood crafts a complex plot that weaves back and forth from the past to the future, yet the narrative momentum never abates.” National Post"Atwood brings her cunning, impish, and bracing speculative trilogy to a gritty, stirring and resonant conclusion.... Atwood is ascendant, from her resilient characters to the feverishly suspenseful plot.... The coruscating finale is an ingenious, cautionary trilogy of hubris, fortitude, wisdom, love, and life's grand obstinacy."  Booklist (STARRED REVIEW) "Unpredictably chilling and hilarious.... The novel holds a shrewd mirror to our possible future." Bookseller  “Weaving adventure, romance, imagination, wit, and incredible world-building, Atwood has created a terrifying future and a compelling end to her tale.” Zoomer
