About the Book"Originally published in hardcover in the United States by Nan A. Talese/Doubleday, a division of Random House LLC, New York, and simultaneously in Canada by McClelland & Stewart Ltd., a division of Random House of Canada Limited, Toronto, in 2013"-- Title page verso.
Book SynopsisNATIONAL BESTSELLER - From the bestselling author of The Handmaid's Tale and The Testamants--this final volume of the internationally celebrated MaddAddam trilogy "has brought the previous two books together in a fitting and joyous conclusion that's an epic not only of an imagined future but of our own past" (The New York Times Book Review). The Waterless Flood pandemic has wiped out most of the population. Toby is part of a small band of survivors, along with the Children of Crake: the gentle, bioengineered quasi-human species who will inherit this new earth. As Toby explains their origins to the curious Crakers, her tales cohere into a luminous oral history that sets down humanity's past--and points toward its future. Blending action, humor, romance, and an imagination at once dazzlingly inventive and grounded in a recognizable world, MaddAddam is vintage Atwood--a moving and dramatic conclusion to her epic work of speculative fiction.
"Lights a fire from the fears of our age. . . . Miraculously balances humor, outrage, and beauty." --The New York Times Book Review"Margaret Atwood is an utterly thrilling storyteller. . . . [MaddAddam is] wonderfully entertaining and just about everything you could want in a novel." --The Washington Post
"Thoughtful, sardonic, and full of touches that almost resemble a fairy tale, MaddAddam will stick with you long after you've put it down." --NPR "The most profound [book] of the trilogy. . . . An adventure story and a philosophical meditation on humanity's predilection for carnage and creation." --The Economist "[Atwood's] most incisive and sociologically acute work. . . . A picture of a very near and very plausible future." --New York magazine
"[Atwood's] vision of global disaster in the not-too-distant future is thrilling, funny, touching and, yes, horrific." --The Washington Post
"Fiction master Margaret Atwood wields a mighty pen." --O, The Oprah Magazine
"Sardonically funny. . . . [Atwood] certainly has the tone exactly right, both for the linguistic hypocrisy that can disguise any kind of catastrophe, and for the contemptuous dismissal of those who point to disaster. . . . MaddAddam is at once a pre- and a post-apocalypse story." --The Wall Street Journal
"The culmination of a satirical dystopian saga a decade in the making. . . . Full of adventure and intrigue." --San Francisco Chronicle
"The imaginative universe Atwood has created in these books is huge. . . . It's a dystopia, but it's still fun." --Los Angeles Times
"This third book of Margaret Atwood's acclaimed near-future dystopian trilogy is its best. . . . Atwood presents a moving and convincing case for our stories' continued existence long after we're gone." --The Seattle Times
"This unsentimental narrative exposes the heart of human creativity as well as our self-destructive darkness. . . . MaddAddam is fueled with edgy humor, sardonic twists, hilarious coincidences." --The Boston Globe
"This novel sings. . . . Close attention to detail, to voice, to what's in the hearts of these people: love, loss, the need to keep on keeping on, no matter what." --The Miami Herald
"There is something funny, even endearing, about such a dark and desperate view of a future--a ravaged world emerging from alarmingly familiar trends--that is so jam-packed with the gifts of imagination, invention, intelligence and joy. There may be some hope for us yet." --Minneapolis Star Tribune
