LONGLISTED 2015  – International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award

Months after the Waterless Flood pandemic has wiped out most of humanity, Toby and Ren have rescued their friend Amanda from the vicious Painballers. They return to the MaddAddamite cob house, which is being fortified against man and giant Pigoon alike. Accompanying them are the Crakers, the gentle, quasi-human species engineered by the brilliant but deceased Crake. While their reluctant prophet, Jimmy -- Crake's one-time friend -- recovers from a debilitating fever, it's left to Toby to narrate the Craker theology, with Crake as Creator. She must also deal with cultural misunderstandings, terrible coffee, and her jealousy over her lover, Zeb.
     Meanwhile, Zeb searches for Adam One, founder of the God's Gardeners, the pacifist green religion from which Zeb broke years ago to lead the MaddAddamites in active resistance against the destructive CorpSeCorps. Now, under threat of an imminent Painballer attack, the MaddAddamites must fight back with the aid of their newfound allies, some of whom have four trotters.
     At the centre, is the extraordinary story of Zeb's past, which involves a lost brother, a hidden murder, a bear, and a bizarre act of revenge.
    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.

Editorial Reviews

LONGLISTED 2014 – Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction“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
