Another great book by Ms. Atwood, who unfortunately most likely correctly extrapolates how events are going (the easily swayed American citizens applauds Michael Lewis' latest book on high frequency trading and how it's used to scam the market, while Lewis goes on NPR and espouses how great the banksters are for their financial innovation, and should never go to jail? ? ? ? ? ?!!!!!!!!!!!!). So sad, so very sad . . .

Remarkable.....This addition to the trilogy, delivers perceptive characterizations and philosophically interconnected ideas at a dynamic pace. The best !

The broad canvas of this dystopian fantasy allows Atwood to show off her incredible talent for satire and wordplay, and her considerable knowledge of the natural world. She paints a joyless vision of a future where genetic-engineering is a lucrative and pervasive facet of human existence and individuals are depersonified.

Definitely some of Atwood's more accessible writing (to borrow a phrase)... A witty, scary, provacative, cautionary tale of "scientific progress" gone awry. Some disturbing content. Part 1 of a trilogy. Final installment not yet released.

Fantastic story, albeit marred by the halfwit who had to underline passages throughout the book. Don't ever do this in library books.

Well written post apocalyptic novel that follows a path that is plausible enough to make one question present society. The characters are complex and developed, and the setting is intense.

Took me a while to get through the book, but I'm glad I finished it. Would love to hear Atwood talk about this book and explain some of the unanswered questions! I'm a huge Atwood fan but this book wasn't one of my favorites. The Edible Woman is still at the top for me!

I picked up this book on a whim having never read Atwood before. It is a well written book and is surprisingly witty. The futuristic theme is thought provoking but a little strange.
