About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
In book one, Atwood does a remarkable job of capturing the young man's perspective, especially given the these futuristic boys' fascination with watching porn and snuff in their gated communities. Not terribly far off from kids (and adults, for that matter) of today. Book two was fascinating, as we moved outside the sterile plastic walls of the compound and saw the gritty, cruel, cannibalistic state of existence in the slums, where about 99% of humanity live in this world. The same characters reappear and intersect in all three books, and book two really hits its stride as we readers wait to see who they'll react to each other, for better and for worse. Book two is an absolute page-turner, one of those call-in-sick books as you plow through the words to see how the chase will turn out. Book three made sense, it had to be there to tie it all together, but it was a great deal of back story that felt interesting, but not vital.
I also highly recommend this to women readers who aren't necessarily big on science fiction.Read more ›
