Reviews

"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
