Title: The Year of the Flood
Author: Margaret Atwood
Summary: The times and species have been changing at a rapid rate, and the social compact is wearing as thin as environmental stability. Adam One, the kindly leader of the God’s Gardeners–a religion devoted to the melding of science and religion, as well as the preservation of all plant and animal life–has long predicted a natural disaster that will alter Earth as we know it. Now it has occurred, obliterating most human life. Two women have survived: Ren, a young trapeze dancer locked inside the high-end sex club Scales and Tails, and Toby, a God’s Gardener barricaded inside a luxurious spa where many of the treatments are edible.
I started reading it because… I read the sequel to the book which is Oryx and Crake. I wanted to know more about what happened to Snowman and how he became the man he is now.
I kept reading because… After reading 100 pages, I realized that this book wasn’t a sequel – it was the same story told from another person’s perspective. But, it gave me many rich details that were not mentioned in Oryx and Crake about Snowman and Crake. For that reason, I kept reading it.
