MaddAddam - Margaret Atwood

So I pre-ordered the ebook a couple of months ago and it showed up this morning in my Kindle app. I thought I'd give a heads up to fans of Oryx & Crake and Year of the Flood. This is part 3 of the trilogy.

Positive review:

Re: MaddAddam - Margaret Atwood

From the review the trilogy sounds interesting in an Alpha & Omega kind of way...!

Years ago I read and enjoyed Attwood's "The Handmaid's Tale" and was somewhat puzzled as to why she sought to distance herself from the science-fiction genre in a way that other literary figures such as Kingsley Amis did not. Apparently she has now changed this view to some degree.

If you find that you enjoy dystopic future scenarios incoprorating genetic mutations, a further recommendation for you would be Geoff Rymans "The Child Garden".
