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 is a good finish to the first 2 books. Atwood is definitely on my "trusted authors" list. ( )
  KittyCunningham | Apr 26, 2021 |
A great conclusion to the trilogy! ( )

Enjoyed reading MaddAddam so much, I've started back on Oryx and Crake.

I love this trilogy. Revisiting the same world from different perspectives from different and the same characters in different times is confusing - but somehow just right. Atwood explores risks of bioengineering, corporatization and environmental destruction all together in ways both extreme, and entirely rationale. An important and enjoyable set of books to read (and re-read...)

This trilogy and its characters (Oryx & Crake, The Year of the Flood, and now MaddAddam) has been part of my adult life for a decade. It is sad for it to end. I'll probably wait 5 years, and then read them all again! ( )

It took me a while to finish this one. I had a few books I "had" to read in the meantime, but truthfully it did not grab me and compel me to read as Year of the Flood did (my favourite book of the triology). This book felt more mainstream fiction than Atwood caliber of literature. Yes, there's still lots of subtle commentary on religion, Christianity, environmental matters, capitalism, etc, but it's cloaked in a romance and the escapades of a renegade hacker. I didn't really care about Zeb's background to the detailed extent that it's given. I wanted to know more about how the Crakers and Gardeners and cohorts were surviving and adapting to the post-Flood world.
What puzzled me about this book is how traditional the gender roles are. Yes, Toby is the one who knows how to use a rifle, but any reconnaissance or "mission" is primarily led by the males. Gender roles are still very male=hunter/gatherer versus female=caregiver. Is Atwood saying that's the norm and our current drive for equality is a luxury on par with art? (meaning, that only a flourishing society spends time on art once food & shelter are easily obtained) Or is she just writing from a traditional perspective?
Regardless, this book underwhelmed me. ( )

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.
