Quickie – The Year of the Flood

The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood

The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood


5

Beautiful and engaging, a complex and satisfying mix of dystopian sci-fi, environmentalism, anarchy and spirituality. Atwood is a poet, a wise woman, a siren storyteller. I’d be surprised and appalled if this book doesn’t win any awards in the coming year.

Recommended for all Creatures great and small, but probably not for anyone under 15.
