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, quasihuman 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 center is the extraordinary story of Zeb's past, which involves a lost brother, a hidden murder, a bear, and a bizarre act of revenge.… (mais)

This was not the strongest of the trilogy, although I liked it and was glad to have some closure for the characters. I think the overall trilogy was very thoughtful and terrifying in the way excellent Science Fiction should be. ( )

I feel like Atwood did a great job of finishing the trilogy. Happy to know how it ends, sad to have to be finished with the characters. ( )

This book is the final book in the MaddAddam trilogy set in a dystopian near future where the human race has been decimated by a deadly virus, designed and intentionally released by radical scientist Crake. He hoped to replace humans with his biologically engineered race, colloquially known as the Crakers, a gentle and innocent species who revere the first human they met, Snowman the Jimmy. Jimmy has told them they were created by Crake, so they treat Crake as a god-figure. As this story opens, a small group of humans is making its way back to a shared camp between humans and Crakers. They have banded together in an attempt to increase the likelihood of survival.

It is told by a small number of narrators. One of the primary protagonists is Toby, a woman who takes Blackbeard, a young Craker, under her wing, teaching him how to read, write, and tell stories. It is dystopian fiction that includes many challenges that humans would be facing in a post-apocalyptic scenario, including food sources, environmental devastation, alternative means of healing, and establishment of a new social structure.

They must figure out how to deal with a violent human group called Painballers and genetically spliced wild animals. Themes include abuse of technology, sustainability, storytelling, inter-species cooperation, and morality/ethics. It is thought-provoking, as well as entertaining.

There's so much to like about this book: the other 2 that came before it, the vegan message, the fall of crapitalism, the plants-used-as-medicine knowledge, the fact that another book is coming... ( )

Atwood's prose miraculously balances humor, outrage and beauty. ... It's a pleasure to read a futuristic novel whose celebration of beauty extends to the words themselves. And words are very important here; by the moving end of "Madd­Addam," we understand how language and writing produced the beautiful fiction that described our ­beginnings.

MaddAddam is slightly crazed, usually intriguing and often great fun. I would have enjoyed it even more, however, were it not for the nagging voice that said: instead of this, we might have had another Alias Grace, or another The Blind Assassin.

But hatred and viciousness are addictive. You can get high on them. Once you've had a little, you start shaking if you don't get more.
They're preternaturally beautiful, thinks Toby. Unlike us. We must seem subhuman to them, with our flapping extra skins, our aging faces, our warped bodies, too thin, too fat, too hairy, too knobbly. Perfection exacts a price, but it's the imperfect who pay it.
There's the story, then there's the real story, then there's the story of how the story came to be told. Then there's what you leave out of the story. Which is part of the story too.
People need such stories, Pilar said once, because however dark, a darkness with voices in it is better than a silent void.
Why is it always such a surprise? thinks Toby. The moon. Even though we know it's coming. Every time we see it, it makes us pause, and hush.
