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

kstrong_74, January 2, 2011

I'm not the type of person who can join a book club. I don't enjoy enough books, or read often enough to keep up. However, if Margaret Atwood were to continuously write the Oryx and Crake series I would start a club myself. The Year of the Flood is a fabulous follow-up to Oryx and Crake. I grabbed this book the second I saw it on the book shelf, and read it within days.
Seeing the characters from a different point of view only made the story more believable and kept me longing for more.
I cannot wait until book #3 comes out.
If you have not started this series, and are a fan of Handmaids Tale, grab both Oryx and Crake, and The Year of the Flood now. You will not be disappointed.
