Glenn Crake used to say the reason you can t really imagine yourself being dead was that as soon as you say I ll be dead you ve said the word I and so you re still alive inside the sentence And that s

over the same ground from a different perspective We learn background about Jimmy the Snowmanand Glenn Crake I loved Oryx and Crake and this book is a shadow of OC mainly because even though I am exposed to elements not covered in the first bookthe plot does not advance If you liked OC you probably should read this one It reads fast and you will appreciate having your view of this world expanded I believe the third book will determine how highly elevated this trilogy will be regarded I highly recommend reading OC before embarking on The Year of the Flood The thing of it is Margaret

The Year of the Flood review ☆ 3 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. This is one of the most important and necessary novels written in the twenty first century so far It s relevant it s powerful and it really is needed Go read it Margaret Atwood ended the world in Oryx and Crake She presented a vision of the future that wasn t too far removed from where the planet is heading And in a way this book is an answer to such environmental catastrophe Firstly though it s worth mentioning that this isn t really a seuel it s told alongside the events of the first book Atwood presents another vision here a vision of how we can or how we would work towards preventing environmental collapse It s the very best of speculative fiction because it plays with real world ideas and fears There s nothing in here that is implausible It s often marketed as a science fiction novel but I would not uite call it science fiction because it adds nothing that couldn t one day be real And unlike the harsh scientific solution to world s problems she delivers in Oryx and Crake the ideas she discusses here are compassionate The Gardeners are humanity s hope They are a radical green group that advocate living in a way far removed from the customs of standard society Recycling is their religion Reusing is their faith They work towards protecting mother earth in all her glory by minimising humanities impact on it They are a reactionary group reacting against environmental collapse and a lack of resources that dominated the narrative of Oryx and Crake They are vegetarians and they live in their own private commune boycotting consumerism and the pharmaceutical companies that control the population without them ever being aware of it By covering such barren rooftops with greenery we are doing our small part in the redemption of God s creation from the decay and sterility that lies all around us and feeding ourselves with unpolluted food into the bargain Some would term our efforts futile but if all were to follow our example what a change would be wrought on our beloved Planet They believe the flood is coming a symbolic collapse in which only the pure will survive in the new world after the old one has been destroyed by man s selfish ways They have extremely strong beliefs but they are also practical and are willing to relinuish certain elements of their creed when faced with survivalist choices They are not entirely bigoted and their leaders are far cleverer than they initially appear In such a group Atwood presents a counterattack on man s current ways And when considering the state of the world today the current environment protests by schools in Northern Europe the surge in veganism and vegetarianism and an increased interest in maintaining what s left of the environment Atwood s green cult feels very real and in a way a possible answer to the problems we are facing I feel like a group not unlike these could exist one day And Atwood really sympathises with their plight and efforts here It s a fantastic piece of writing and I m really intrigued to see exactly what the seuel does MaddAddam Trilogy1 Oryx and Crake 5 stars2 The Year of the Flood 5 stars3 MaddAddam 2 starsYou can connect with me on social media via My Linktree
