The Year of the Flood
Author: Margaret Atwood
Release Date: September 2009
I enjoyed the second book of the Madadam series better than the first, which was surprising considering it was more tangential overall. Instead of following the bringers of the apocalypse, the story follows two women involved in a religious cult of pacifist farmers. I actually found the two leads more sympathetic than Snowman or Crake from book one.
I listened to the audiobook of this which had the added benefit of actual singing and music for the over the top church hymns. Prior to reading I was on the fence about book three but now I’ll definitely be reading it.
