Book Review: The Year of the Flood

The Year of the FloodThe Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I re-read this after reading Oryx and Crake and I have to say this transformed the book making the second reading just as enjoyable as the first.

I loved the way this book wove in and out of the storyline of the first book and knowing what had happened added a darker edge to this reading.

My love of the god's gardeners had abated a little, perhaps because of what I knew of the involvement of the MaddAdam group in the end of the world? I don't know.

However, what I do know is that during this reading of the book I started to get paranoid about the inevitable end of the human race through some kind of epidemic and have started to keep my own ararat and practice skills that may help me when the illness strikes. Is it weird that a work of fiction has that effect on me?!
